Other Comparison Charts

Legend:

D&D = Drag & Drop

WYSIWYG = What You See Is What You Get

CMS = Content Management System. It’s basically a website dashboard with menus and pages to manage your website. It’s like navigating through Facebook if you have ever setup your own Facebook group or page.

Snap = Images, Text and other content will snap in place on the page you are editing. Doesn’t have as much freedom as a traditional D&D builder.

Plugins & Extensions = Basically they are like apps that you can addon to your website to accomplish a specific task. WordPress as an example has free & paid plugins that you can addon to your site to have a drag & drop editor.

What is a website builder? There are 2 types: Platforms and software.

Website Builder Platforms

There are many platforms out there, but these are the most popular. They are actively supported by their staff and continually being developed.

Platforms are an all-in-one solution where the proprietary software (that companies website builder) is already installed on the server and you can just focus on using it’s tools to build a simple website. Every platform has different features and limitations that you should review in the comparison chart. This solution is primarily for beginner’s and easing them into the process of building out common websites with their easy to use tools.

Website Builder Software

There is a great number of software solutions that you can use to build a website. These are the most popular and still being developed by their staff or community.

Software is another type. It’s most commonly referred to as a CMS – Content Management System. This is basically the same thing but you have to install it on your own web hosting (then it becomes your platform). Most web hosts will already have software (like WordPress.org, Joomla.org, and Drupal) installed and you can quickly add it to your account (for free) with a single click. This type of solution has more of a learning curve but infinitely more possibilities for customization. It’s nothing you can’t get familiar with by spending an afternoon searching on YouTube or by taking this free course.

Other website builders (and/or information) that didn’t make it in the chart:

Webflow is a website builder for a designer. It’s really awesome but not most people including myself. (although I can appreciate it)

Webydo: It is more for agencies that sell design services. Not priced for you to just use on your own website.

Google Sites: This is the Google web page builder. It is free and it did get a nice update but unless you are very fluent with Google’s apps that you can plug into it it’s really basic. I think it is really horrible to try to use even if it is for a personal site.

uCoz uKit & uShop: Very old templates. Most of their website examples are not in English. Many of those examples do not look maintained either (broken images, removed YouTube videos, etc). Pricing table is geared to make you feel like you need much more expensive plans and you would to get rid of their aggressive advertisements.

Doodlekit: Very dated looking templates.

XPRS is by IMCreator but it is a different builder. XPRS is a drag & drop builder and IMCreator is a lego-like builder.

Web.com: I’ll use one word: no. Insane rise in price after first month. F*ck these guys, they are crooks.

Webs.com was purchased by Vistaprint

Yahoo! Site Builder: Please do not use this… it is ancient.

Same goes for Homestead.

Virb: Someone’s using it but seems like a ghost town.

1&1 website builder: What would you really expect for $1… it’s not good.

SiteBuilder.com is the same builder as WebsiteBuilder.com

SnapPages: Priced moderately higher than the competitors (in chart above) that offer more for less.

On my list to look at and review
