8 Of The Very Best FREE Web Admin Dashboard Mockups

AliceL Website Usability Aug 13, 2014

Website development and administration has come a long, long way since the days of simply having to remember your FTP login, and maybe how to access your cPanel account if you were lucky enough to have website hosting with advanced features such as cPanel. What you'll find running behind most websites instead these days is a full suite of data analysis software and web-based software tools which can be daunting to use, to say the very least.

The problem is that all of these software and data analysis tools have been put together by software developers, and the UI (user interface) is usually put at the very bottom of the features list. This then leaves end-users completely lost when it comes to actually using any of these online tools, simply because the interface/dashboard requires a degree in coding wizardry to make sense of. Luckily enough you have a lot of options when it comes to replacing the default dashboard running behind any particular website.

I've put together a list of 8 of our favourite website/UI dashboards to give you an idea of what you can achieve when creating your very own custom web admin dashboard. Oh, and all of them are free and very well done, so you can use these when creating your next website.

It's nice to see mockups taking the revolution in mobile browsing and shopping into account by providing files optimized for both desktop computer and iPad/tablet resolutions too. 'Piggy Balance' has a very "online banking" feel to it, thanks to its tidy layout and corporate color scheme.
