We built Webist.ca to enable you to create and share web based content with your friends and people around you. We understand you may not want everyone to have access to your hosted content at Webist.ca; that is why we give you control of your personal content.
Webist.ca helps you share content with your friends and people around you. You choose what content you make available.Webist.ca is based on the accumulation of user provided and/or formed content and there is an increasing amount of content being made available for Webist.ca users. Webist.ca sees it as its goal to help its users have as much content as possible available for their use while retaining each user's privacy.
