5 Best web builders out there

by Stephen O.

Thinking about starting a website? For your online business or just your day-to-day blog?

Here are a few recommendations I have researched and made into the list based on the price and functionality, so you do not have to. You're welcome!

1. Wix



Price = unlimited free trial (with ads) / $13 a month

This website maker is straightforward to use and an excellent start for anyone who is a beginner and is still looking for a creative web builder. They have many templates for you to choose from.

Wix offers a free plan with limited bandwidth and storage. However, you can use this plan to test drive their drag and drop website builder. It does not include a domain name, so if you decide to keep your website, then you may want to upgrade to a premium plan.

I highly recommended this web builder because how user friendly it is that even beginners can learn along the way and yet is great enough to impress your audience.

Verdict: Best overall

2. Shopify


Price = Free Trial 14 days/ $29 a month

This web builder specializes in e-commerce, the platform offers an easy and user-friendly way to get an e-commerce website store up and to run online. It supports business owners throughout the process with their e-commerce tools. Like most other commerce-focused builders, Shopify's platform is geared toward your product and sales details. For those without a lot of experience setting up a retail operation, Shopify is an all-in-one fully hosted solution, this means you don't have to worry about managing software, installing updates, or keeping backups. Shopify does all that for you.

Verdict: most suitable for starter online stores

3. BigCommerce


Price= Free Trial 15 days / $29 a month


Like Shopify, this web builder specializes in e-commerce as well but on a bigger scale. I would only recommend this if you have plenty of experience in web building and is looking to upgrade your business to medium or large-scale e-commerce.

Bigcommerce has many features that you can imagine of for Even the lowest BigCommerce plan at $29 gives its clients unlimited users, unlimited bandwidth and storage, unlimited products, and no added transaction fees. You can even link your e-commerce site to eBay, Google Shopping, and Amazon.

Verdict: most suitable for huge online stores

4. Wordpress


Price = Free Trial 'unlimited' with ads / $5 a month

Probably you have heard of this one. Arguably the most popular web builder out there and many refer to the free, open-source software available through WordPress.org. It takes some time to learn and still requires that you find a website host and domain name. If you're interested in going the advanced route of WordPress.org, we recommend you check out a tutorial or guide such as those you can find on WPBeginner or WebsiteToolTester to learn how it works.

Verdict: best for writers and blogs

5. Weebly


Price= 'unlimited' with ads / $12 a month

Weebly offers some excellent options depending on your needs. If you want a simple and easy-to-use do-it-yourself website editor, a large site unlimited storage, site portability, and affordable yet powerful online store capabilities, Weebly is definitely a good platform to start with.

Verdict: Easiest to use
