  1. Nice article on top best website builder. I actually find this article informative on somethings that I don’t know about website builder. I have been conversant with WordPress from the beginning without checking the advantage of other website builders. Looking at WordPress, is still the most popular website builder I ever know for now. I would like to checkout other website builders in the list to the advantage they have  over WordPress 

    1. Hi ajibola! Those are just my top 5 website builders but you can actually find a lot more website builders in the internet. So far you are not in a wrong place to build your website because WordPress is is really great and better from other website builders out there according from my experience. If you still have concerns or opinion just leave a comment below and i will be happy to help you out. Thanks!

    2. I’ve used both WordPress.org and Wix. So far, so good.I haven’t had any crazy experiences with them yet, but I’m sure it will come when I try to become more tech-savvy with them.

      I started using Wix as part of a grad school project to create my online portfolio of all sorts. The steps in creating it with the free plan were simple.

      WordPress.org can be easy as well, but I recommended starting out with WordPress.com before heading on over to .org. Just to see how it works.

      Thanks for this article, you provided many helpful tips!

      1. Hi Alexandria! So far I have no difficulties in using WordPress.org even if i did not start form WordPress.com. Both of them are great website builder. If you still have any suggestions or recommendations just leave them below. Thanks!

  2. Having a good website is one of the major part of online business because it tells your visitors about what you offer. It is the image of your business and it is part of what determines how far your business will go. Therefore, having a good website builder is Paramount and for me, I have always prefer godaddy

    1. Hi Linus! Exactly. No website? No online business for you! Having a website is your way of communicating to your customers globally. Yes go daddy is good but have you try other website builders like WordPress? Its actually great and you will love it. If you still have any questions or concerns regarding website builders then just leave a comment below and i will be happy to help you out!

  3. Good Morning Ford Juan,

    After reading your detailed post on which is the best website builder I became very happy. I discovered that when I started with my 2 websites in January 2017 I landed in the right place. I did not know anything about website building and technology is not my favorite. 

    To have become a member of Wealthy Affiliate whose program guided me in the process of building my website with Word Press could not have been better. Here we have all the tools at our fingertips, you can work at your own speed, and you have all the help you need. 

    After comparing the different options you talk about with what I have it is clear to me this is the best place to be.

    Regards, Taetske

  4. I know email marketing is a thing nowadays and people are making it big just doing email marketing but I think having a website to promote a business or a hobby has a more lasting effect than when making use of an email. I believe every online entrepreneur needs a website even if they are making use of email marketing.

    Out of all the website builders mentioned the one I most familiar with is Godaddy and WordPress but I think WordPress is more common and it is actually the one I make use of.

    1. Hi Jay! There are no problem with email marketing it is just depending on people what they prefer to use on there online marketing. But if you want your business to last for years then building a website is a must. Both website site are great but i’d prefer to use WordPress because of the freedom of building a website. If you still have anything in mind that you would like to clear, just leave a comment below and i will be more than happy to help you out! Thanks

  5. I absolutely love this insightful article because it is full of great information. This is fascinating and interesting to me.In selecting the best website builder for my affiliate marketing business, I would prefer wordpress for it’s features. This article highlighted his pro more than the cons. WordPress is the most popular website builder in the world and its easy to setup .thanks for the review, best regards 

    1. Hi Adamuts! In terms of having your own way to build a website, WordPress is your builder. Yes you are right its easy to set up specially if you have the right training provider that teaches you step by step on building a profitable website. If you still have concerns just leave a comment below! thanks

  6. It’s good to know that a website can make the potential readers increase the trust they have on one’s business as time rolls by and the internet is a must to leverage when it comes to making the business skyrocket or go viral in the online world. I’ve once used Godaddy to host a website some years ago and have also bought domains from this platform times without number. So, it’s one of the most awesome domain registrars and web hosting providers in the industry.

    I’ve personally tried Weebly out and found it to be so awesome but haven’t got a better blogging experience from any other blogging platform than WordPress. Thanks for your passion!
