The Webnode platform was developed by the Czech company Westcom and launched in 2008. Before that, the company’s founder used to develop apps for corporate clients. Two years after the launch the service started to be localized; now it is available in more than two dozen languages, which alone speaks of how huge the project’s activity is.
Website builders are omnipresent. The deeper I dig into the web publishing market, the more website builders I find. And it seems their number will only increase. Web hosting providers, web apps developers, domain name registrars and other companies consider it their duty to add a proprietary web publishing solution to their product lineup.
It’s been more than five years since we reviewed Zoho Sites, a web publishing solution developed by Zoho Corporation in 2012. With the launch of this builder, the company filled a much-needed gap in Zoho’s business apps lineup. The new product integrated with other business tools in Zoho’s productivity suite.
GoDaddy is widely known thanks to its ubiquitous adverts. So what exactly does this company offer? Well, beyond doing a whole lot of advertising, GoDaddy provides web hosting, sells domain names and – hardly surprising – runs its own website builder. Frankly speaking, GoDaddy has never been among our favorite website builders. Too clumsy and blatantly salesly, it didn’t inspire confidence.
It just wouldn’t be Google if it didn’t have its own website builder. Seems, that this corporation offers any kind of service you need. For those unfamiliar with Google Sites, it’s the reincarnation of Jotspot, which was acquired by Google back in 2006. Today, Google’s site builder looks nothing like Jotspot, other than the fact that both are hosted wiki systems which allow collaborative content creation, modification, and extension.
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.
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.
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).
Recently, we’ve been updating our most popular reviews and comparisons. We’ve covered everything from Weebly to Carbonmade, but have yet to mention one of the most trusted names in the market – Homestead. We are going to correct that with a detailed review of this website builder.
