Four Easy-to-Use Website Builders You Should Consider Using for Your Next Project

    We’re living in the age of information, technology and social connectivity; there’s almost nothing we can’t find over the internet and that gives everyone the opportunity to make their mark on the World Wide Web.

    However, where and how do you start your internet adventure? Most of us have no clue how to code or know what HTML5 is. Don’t fret, though, because we’ve got you covered with a slew of suggestions on the best website builders to create your own personal blog, website, or even small business.

    Creating a website is going to be up to you, to decide what it’s going to be used for, and the reason behind making it. With so many options available, the first step is asking yourself why you’re creating the website and go from there. The great thing about the sites we’ve offered is the chance to try them for yourself for free. The following step is choosing which website you are most comfortable with.

    Wix.com

    Wix is considered not only one of cheapest website builders on the web, but also one of the best – and we agree. With a simple design, an easy builder and even an ad featuring Jason Statham and Gal Gadot, it is one of the simplest to use. It has hundreds of different themes covering different categories, offering the option to upload your own customised fonts and even animates text if required.

    Best Bit: Easy editor that gives you a larger control over the design of the website.

    Worst Bit: Be careful when setting up your account so you’d end up with the name you actually want to use.

    Strikingly.com

    Despite having the least number of themes, Strikingly has an easy editor with straight-to-the-point tweaking that helps you hit the ground running. But while it is easy to use, it can be a bit limiting, especially considering that it only has about 20 themes, making it hard to reach the full potential of what you want to achieve.

    Best Bit: Simple and easy to use.

    Worst Bit: Not enough themes, limiting design options.

    Sitebuilder.com

    Easy design and an easy editor with wonderful themes is the name of the game here. Sitebuilder helps you through every stage and has a huge library with thousands of themes to choose from, making it one of the most diverse sites on our list.

    Best Bit: Easy with nice control over the layout and design of the website.

    Worst Bit: It has as a hefty price tag if you’re interested in making an ecommerce store.

    Weebly.com                                                                                                                                                                                     

    Using a drag and drop design, Weebly’s editor is easy and friendly for new users.Though there are just over 30 themes, they are amazing. While it makes it a bit hard to bring out maximum innovation, it’s balanced in terms of the amount of control it gives you over the design elements.

    Best Bit: Though few, the themes look much more modern compared to other websites.

    Worst Bit: Few themes as well as long loading times during editing.

    Honorable Mention:

    Since it’s not actually free but still awesome, you can check Squarespace.com for a premium experience and gorgeous themes with prices ranging from $12 to $18.

    Note: that while all these websites provide you with an easy way to build a website relatively free, you will still have to pay some cash to buy the actual domain name that you want. The websites we mentioned do that at a cost, or you can go to domain websites like Bluehost, Ehost, Ipage and Godaddy and buy them from there for an annual/monthly fee. After you make your purchase, you can link it to the website builder.
