The world of website builders is constantly changing. But there are several services which stand out of the time. About one of them we’ll speak today. One of the reasons people (especially the tech-savvy ones) don’t take online website builders seriously is because most platforms have mediocre feature sets which limit you to creating a website only using their ready, predesigned building blocks.
There was a time when Do-It-Yourself website creation software was a joke, but that’s not the case anymore. Geared towards a regular customer, modern code-free platforms offer all of the power of content management systems wrapped in a user-friendly interface. Sure, high-end web development is still necessary, as someone has to build the code-free tools for a start. But the average business doesn’t see the need to have its website created as a technical gem.
Webydo is a work of love of a web design community that advocates the role of a designer in the website creation process. Shmulik Grizim and Tzvika Steinmetz co-founded Webydo because they actually needed it themselves. The co-founders were running a digital advertising firm and were spending about 70% of website creation budgets on hiring developers.
Similar to all trends, single page designs have their own advantages and flaws, but in a world where people tend to read diagonally skipping whole paragraphs and pages, running a single-page site may be a brilliant way to make them stop and pay attention to your product or service. If you consider choosing such an unusual format for your next/first website, you should know there are one-page website builders that can make the process of website creation as easy as creating a Facebook account.
SITE123 is a simple website builder that makes it possible to create promo sites, landing pages, blogs and small online shops. All websites created on the basis of this platform are responsive and can be browsed on any mobile devices. You can use the service for free, but, in this case, the ad banner of the site builder will be provided in the footer and you will not be able to set up the 2nd level domain.
Bookmark is a cloud-based website builder. It looks innovative and modern, compared to standard systems of this type at first sight. Despite the niche competition, it impressed me with the balanced set of features this website builder offers.
Microsoft Website Builder or WebMatrix 3 is a free, lightweight, cloud-connected website builder that operates as a web development application for Windows. The builder enables developers to create sites using ready, built-in templates or popular open-source applications. It’s vital to note that this builder is mainly targeted at professionals who create websites for their clients (as opposed to the builders that target the end user).

Join us exploring its benefits and possible downsides.
