There are at least 10 website builders out there, at least, from which you have to choose.
As many of you know, I’m using WordPress for my blog, I’m learning WordPress on a daily basis.
But what about those people who want a website, but there aren’t sure which one to choose? For those, I have gathered a list with (for now) 5 website builders I found to be particularly useful WordPress alternatives:
- 1. Wix
- 2. Weebly
- 3. Webflow
- 4. Squarespace
- 5. Joomla
I will discuss about these website builders in a upcoming article. Stick around to find out more.
But before we do that, let’s also see a list with 5 myths&facts about these website builders listed above:
01. A website built with a website builder will never rank well
~ False ~
Any sites that produce poor content will not be well-received in the eyes of great Google, or any other search engines, for that matter.
From all website builders available out there, which includes Wix, Weebly, Webflow, Squarespace, Joomla, etc, only Squarespace is not recommended for blogging, because page titles and meta descriptions can’t be adjusted for individual blog posts.
02. A professional website needs professional hand working on it
~ True ~
Well, let’s say it depends on what kind of work your website needs. It can be content creation, graphic design or even web development, or all of the above. You may be qualified to do it yourself, or you can hire freelancers/agencies.
03. You won’t be able to modify your site once it has been built
~ False ~
You can do whatever please you to do with your site, however some changes may be restricted. For example, if you decide that Wix is for you, and you choose their free plan, once you select your template, you won’t be able to change it.
04. Switching for a website builder to another – Pain in the ass
~ True ~
Switching from a website builder to another can be a real pain in the ass, but the BAD part of switching is that you will need to start designing your website again. The GOOD part will be in case you are planning a whole re-design.
05. Once the traffic increases, your site will crash
~ FALSE / TRUE ~
The truth is, in case it’s happening, your hosting provider will cut off your bandwidth if your web space storage and monthly visitors number will be surpassed.
But in most cases, major hosting companies offer you an option to upgrade to a better plan, or a VPS / Dedicated Server. So, it’s not the end of the world if your site crashes due to increased traffic, it’s even better. It means that you are successful with your website. 🙂
I hope it helps!
