The 5 Best Website Builders

By Keith Loria for America's Backbone Weekly

Regardless of the type or size of your company, it's a rare business indeed that doesn't benefit from having its own company website.

While not everyone has the budget for hiring a web designer—or someone to help get it all up and running, luckily there's now numerous website builders that make having a great looking website cheap and easy for any business.

Today, web-based site builders make sites look better than ever—on mobile as well as desktop—and you can even make money from them. If you're planning on building your own website, you should start by investigating these.

With a free platform that offers plenty of tools to establish a good looking site in under an hour, Weebly is one of the most popular web-based site builders today. Its user friendly drag & drop model is a hit with non-coders, and its broad range of templates gives any business a professional gloss. For those who do know some code, Weebly allows you to edit the website's HTML and CSS to make customizations if needed. Upgrading can be done for a small price, but probably isn't needed for many businesses.

If you want things to the point, the best thing about Wix is that whatever you insert into the website editor will look exactly the same way when published. With more than 510 professional looking templates available, Wix has plenty of options to efficiently create the appearance you are looking for. Jeremy Wong, blogger with Website Builder Expert, says if building a beautiful and interactive website is a priority for your business, Wix is the candidate for you. "Specifically, Wix works well for photographers, designers, restaurant & hospitality related websites, musicians or small businesses," he says. "The way to create your website with Wix is based on a drag and drop interface and they have help/support buttons everywhere, which is really important."

This web builder offers a drag and drop option specifically focused on providing rich-imagery, highly polished experiences for website builders. John Turner, CEO of UsersThink, feels this site is great for the beginner who just wants to get something on the web fast. "SquareSpace offers more focus and simplicity, and will handle hosting for you," he says. "Regarded as a solid choice for those who need to get up and running quickly without needing as much customization."

Looking for more of a web solution/marketing solution combo? Will Chase, president of Webtacular, offers all-in-one hosted solutions for businesses. "We're about to release our latest version, which is a fully managed website (CMS) and monthly marketing program (SEO, social media, blogging) all for a low monthly price," he says. "We're targeting small businesses as they really need this type of marketing/website package at a price they can afford."

According to Wong, if you want to build an online shop without too much hassle, Jimdo is a great candidate. "Overall, Jimdo is a very good website builder for those who do not want to pay thousands of dollars for a custom-built website, or for those who do not know how to code," he says. "It is very easy to use, their customer service and community forum is superb and most important of all, it takes away your headaches of website building so it frees up your time to do more important things." Additionally, the platform supports eight languages.

Other strong website builders to take a look at—especially for those who care about mobile—include DudaOne, GoDaddy, Webs, Yola and Clickbooq. With services like these, building your own website is too easy, cheap and effective for you not to do it.
