Here Are The Best Website Builders Today

There are a thousand reasons to create a website nowadays, but where do you start? There seem to be countless different website builders out there, and it can be hard to tell which one is going to be the best for you. Not all of these website creators are made equally, and it’s important to choose the one that is going to work best for you and your needs.


Are you an expert in website design, or a total beginner? Are you on a budget, or do you simply want the best of the best? How important is e-commerce to your website? These are just a few of the things you need to consider when choosing a website builder.

We’ve highlighted some of the most popular platforms on the web today, so you can find out which one suits your needs the most. Looking for ease of use? Affordability? Customization? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Wix

Wix is one of the most popular website builders out there. It offers simple templates for beginners and advanced customization for experts. Also, unlike some of the other big brands, it offers a free version—though to access all of the best features, you will need a relatively pricey subscription, starting at $14 per month.

Squarespace

Like Wix, Squarespace has templates to help anyone make a beautiful website, but also offers full customization options for experts who know how to code. Squarespace also has built-in integration with all kinds of advanced tools like e-commerce platforms and accounting tools, making it one of the most comprehensive platforms on this list—but this all comes at a cost. Squarespace offers no free model, and plans start at $12 per month.

Weebly

Believe it or not, Weebly has been offering custom website building tools for nearly 15 years. Weebly prides itself on being extremely intuitive and easy to use, so this might be the number 1 option for any technophobes out there who want to start a website. Though advanced users might find some of Weebly’s features a little limiting, it’s perfect for beginners, still offers great customization options, and starts at just $7 per month.

WordPress

Already the world’s most popular content management system, WordPress has upped its game in recent years, adding e-commerce functionality and other more advanced features. Even for people using WordPress’s free platform, the extensive library of WordPress plugins still offers a ton of customization—but it may not be for everyone. WordPress is completely open-source, but beginners might find it difficult to give their site the same custom look as Wix or Squarespace. Personal plans start at $5 per month, while Premium comes in at $10 per month.

Webnode

Webnode is the website creation platform for anyone on a tight budget. While not quite as robust as some of its competitors, Webnode still offers simple, easy-to-use drag and drop tools that can help anyone make an attractive website. Webnode offers arguably the best free model of any platform, and their premium plans start at just $3.95 per month. Upgrade to their $5.95 per month plan, and you can even get your own domain, by far the cheapest option on this list.
