You do not have to be a programmer to build a website. Coding a place from the start takes time, which you may not need to save if you run a small business or try to get a site from the ground. There are plenty of "site builders" out there offering ways for someone to make their website. Here are some of the best.
Wix: Free and Simple
Wix is a popular builder that has a simple interface, great templates and smooth web sites. They have a free version with limited storage and bandwidth, and you can unlock more with its "Unlimited" plan for $ 14 a month.
The free plan is available at a cost. Wix will tag your site footer with a "Made of Wix" ad and give you a Wix domain like "yourdomain.wix.com." You can also not use the (or "Unlimited" plan) for an online store, unless you does not pay for its e-commerce plan, starting at $ 20 per month.
Weebly: Built for Ecommerce
The Weebly Free Plan has many of the same features as Wix, but their paid plans are cheaper and offer some different features. With its $ 8 per month "Starter" plan, you get a free domain, a $ 100 Google Ads Coupon to advertise your site and some basic e-commerce features.
But everything except the $ 25 "Business" plan will charge a 3% fee for goods sold on the site, redirect to Weebly to handle the cashier and limit the number of products you can sell. If you run a company outside of your site, you want this plan.
1 & 1: Pricy, but a major site editor
1 & 1 has one of the best drag and drop editors in the market. It's easy to use for beginners, but very powerful for anyone who wants to customize their website. They are also a good web host and manage your domain for you as well.
Their basic plan starts at $ 1 per month but rises to $ 10 per month after the first year. They have a separate e-commerce website builder starting at $ 20 a month.
GoDaddy: Premium Hosting
GoDaddy, domain registrar and web hosting service also have their own site builder. It's a comprehensive drag and drop editor, with some good premade templates for you to use. You also get all the benefits of hosting at GoDaddy, one of the largest web hosting providers.
GoDaddy does not have a free plan, but they have one month free trial. If you run a store, you'll have to pay for their "Online Store" program of $ 20 per month, even though their "Business" plan allows users to pay to book online meetings.
