The advancement of the drag and drop website builders have gone through major changes over the past 15 years. Webs.com (a former/inactive customer), started out a great website builder in the late 2000s and early 2010s. But now there are so many other great and better ones out there instead of the old webs.com. In the next couple of years, I am planning on switching to another website builder provider, because I like the one that I'm using right now, but eventually I want more options in the future and not deal with third party companies. Hence why I would eventually bring this whole website over, unless my current website builder provider brings in more in house options in the next few years or. I know it would be a pain in the butt to switch (again) and at that point I would pay someone to help me out in mirgrating everthing over to a particular one that I have in mine, but I'm in no position to make that move in the short term. Midterm sure, which is why I'm always looking for website builders that give me more options.
Here are the better ones that see (not personally reviewed but looked around and continued to look around, every so offten). I'm looking at the ones that are if I were to buy today type of thing, what ones that I would consider.
- GoDaddy (Finally, they offer more than just domain)
- Wordpress.com (Not Wordpress.org keep in mind)
- Kajabi (for those who want courses and membership feature all in house)
Wix, Squarespace and Weebly are very similar to each other.
Wordpress and Weebly seems to be the best for customer service
If one wants to outsource their website an easy drag and drop type of website builder then these can be good, depending on what one wants. If one wants to go more of a purely customized route, one must go for the Wordpress.org and download it to their computer and it is a bit more upfront work and long term maintenance.
Simple website - WIx, Squarespace, Weebly, GoDaddy, Wordpress.com
More complex - Kajabi and Wordpress.org
Most expensive - hire a full time programmer(s) that can build a website.
