This is important to know and understand what the best website builders are, that are easy to use. If you are not a coding freak and you don’t understand HTML, CSS or even PHP, then it is necessary to get a website builder to help you develop and create your website. Many of the website builders use drag-and-drop functions to help you design and create your web pages. However, some website builders claim how easy they are to use, but when you dig right in there are horrible and you’ll spend more time learning how to use the program than you will you will spend building your website.
If you don’t have any idea what you are doing it will be necessary to find a website builder that is easy for you to use and understand. You don’t want to get an outdated website builder that will give you nightmares just trying to understand it and figure out how to use it. So let’s take a look at a few website builders that you can use. I won’t be talking about WordPress in this list because everyone seems to know about them.
SiteBuilder – The company has over 200,000 users and they offer you over 1,200 different templates you can use to build your website with. This site builder has a variety of different designs and it will be hard to find another website builder that offers you so much.
The website builder has a great and affordable way for you to build an e-commerce store and add your products to the site easily. This is a fully-functioning online store for you to build using one of the templates the site builder has to offer.
If you choose this website builder, you’ll receive your domain name registration free for the first year and they don’t place ads on your site.
However, if you need email support you’ll be paying an extra $5 each month. For the first year you can get an E-commerce plan for $9.22 a month, however, when you renew this plan it will go up to around $18 or more a month.
Site123 – This is a good site builder and the support is excellent. Especially if you want to build an e-commerce site. The site has a few hundred design templates you can choose from. It is easy to drag and drop the content on your pages to reorganize your pages in a flash.
The site plans start at $129 for the year and will include your domain name registration. However, if you need other help on the site beside the e-commerce portion of your website the customer service can be very lax and not so helpful. The different site plans can get expensive very quickly and the basic plan starts off at $10 a month and goes all the way up to $28 a month.
Overall, this site builder is easy to use and very simple for a beginner to understand and build their first website.
Wix – This is a very popular website builder that everyone seems to know about and use. The site partners with Google’s GSuite and they have more than 100 million users worldwide that have chosen this as their hosting company and website builder.
You can find over 500 different templates to use to build your website or even an e-commerce site using this website builder. It is easy to use and people love this. This is a great alternative to WordPress and people will either choose WordPress or Wix to build their first website with this website builder.
The site offers an annual plan of $132 for the year and this includes a free domain name. However, the longer you host your site and pay the yearly price, you’ll receive a discount. So if you want to stick with this plan and pay a 5-year contract, you’ll receive a discount on the price you pay.
These 3 website builders are one of the best alternatives to using WordPress. They are all excellent and you’ll need to decide which one is best for you. Otherwise, do like so many others have done and go with WordPress. You can always upload WordPress to any hosting company and host your WordPress website design there.
