You can create a professional and beautiful website without writing a single line of code. This tool is designed for beginners with little to no technical skills. Its user-friendly interface and use of drag and drop technology allows anyone to type in a text, upload images, or change and move any element with a simple click and drag of the mouse.

3. It’s affordable
It is quite expensive to hire a professional website design. If you don’t have a budget to complement this investment, an easy website builder is a great option. When you purchase one of our high-quality web hosting plans, you also gain access to our sitebuilder. So technically, it won’t cost you a thing. Using a website builder will reduce your start-up costs significantly, even if your goal is to create multiple websites.
4. Flexibility and convenience
A website builder makes it possible to work on your website from any computer, at anytime from anywhere in the world. All you have to do is log in and pick up where you left off. That’s because website builders are based online,so all your web files are actually saved on the service provider’s server and not your computer. Let’s say you notice a spelling error on your website. No problem, you can edit it in real-time using any device, even your smartphone. Just log into your account, make the change then save and/or publish it.
5. Extensive libraries and applications.
Add functionality to your website with the extensive library of free applications and tools that come with your website builder. You can also integrate third-party tools and plugins.
6. Control over the look and feel
By designing your website yourself, you have all the power and control over its aesthetics and functionality. Omit the back and forth between you and a web developer, whose design interpretation may not reflect your goal or expectations. When you create a website yourself, you get to choose the overall look and feel. After all, you can be as graphic as possible in describing your dream site but you can’t guarantee that the designer will come up with something that matches it.
A website builder gives you all the tools and templates you need to create the website of your dream. You can look through hundreds of templates to find the one that speaks to you and then go from there to add your own style.
7. Drag and drop website builder
We’ve mentioned this before, but the drag and drop feature makes designing so simplistic we had to zoom in on it some more. This is critical in making it possible to create, edit and move web pages, with absolutely no coding knowledge. To move a design element, simply drag it to its new location and drop it into place. This will take only a few seconds, and can improve the look and functionality of your site.
