    1. Squarespace

    Sleek and sophisticated with lots of room for customization. Great for blogs, portfolio sites and users who already have an eye for design.

  2. Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star

    2. Weebly

    The easiest way for anyone to build a website. If building a website intimidates you, you’ll want to try Weebly.

  3. Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Light-star

    3. Virb

    A great choice for photographers and videographers. Virb has plenty of stunning themes that are perfect for showcasing visuals.

  4. Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Light-star

    4. Yola

    An honest, intuitive product that makes for a very solid experience.

  5. Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Light-star

    5. Edicy

    Great multilingual and developer support. Editor is easy to use but lacks design and template flexibility.

  6. Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Half-star Light-star

    6. GoDaddy

    While V7 may alienate some existing customers, it also puts GoDaddy firmly in the right direction.

  7. Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Half-star Light-star

    7. Adobe Muse

    An impressive way to build your site from scratch. But a steep learning curve requires some level of experience with graphic design.

  8. Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Half-star Light-star

    8. Webs

    Packs a ton of functionality into an easy to use interface. But a few cracks are starting to show.

  9. Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Light-star Light-star

    9. Wix

    Wix is a story of over-promising and inevitably under-delivering. Beautiful templates are ultimately undercut by a lack of structure.

  10. Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Light-star Light-star

    10. OnePager

    A simple tool for creating one page websites, but unfortunately too basic for most websites.

  11. Dark-star Dark-star Dark-star Light-star Light-star

    11. Zoho Sites

    Easy to use with an excellent form builder, but lacking in template customization and mobile options.

  12. Dark-star Dark-star Half-star Light-star Light-star

    12. Gutensite

    You can build a lot with Gutensite. You just might not be able to build it yourself.

  13. Dark-star Dark-star Half-star Light-star Light-star

    13. SnapPages

    An updated app-based website builder with bold design. Rebuilt using HTML5. An odd mix of features that don’t always mesh.

  14. Dark-star Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    14. Webstarts

    Outdated themes, a struggling feature list and unclear premium incentives . We'd recommend skipping WebStarts.

  15. Dark-star Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    15. Webnode

    Plenty of widgets to add (some good, some bad) but templates feel dated and inflexible.

  16. Dark-star Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    16. Jimdo

    The drag and drop builder interface is clumsy, menus can seem illogical and layouts are outdated.

  17. Dark-star Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    17. Homestead

    Lazy mobile strategy and constant upsells sink an otherwise polished website editor.

  18. Dark-star Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    18. IM-Creator

    An open-ended website builder that runs into challenges over time. Poor mobile and SEO support.

  19. Dark-star Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    19. Google Sites

    Great at building collaboration tools, wikis and intranets but not recommended for much else.

  20. Dark-star Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    20. Basekit

    A steep learning curve keeps Basekit out of reach for most users.

    A quick review explaining why there is no reason to build your website using iPage.

    22. CityMax

    Cookie cutter websites with boring templates and little flexibility to do anything beyond that.

  23. Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    A flash based website builder struggles to keep up with the times and stay relevant.

  24. Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    24. Web.com

    Treats you poorly and rivals GoDaddy and 1&1 for the worst website builder experiences. Avoid.

  25. Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    25. Sandvox

    A native application known for being a replacement for iWeb. Mac only.

  26. Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    26. 1&1

    A large advertising budget makes 1&1 well known, but a mix of issues make it a less than desirable option.

  27. Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    27. Sitezulu

    SiteZulu is a fairly new platform that promises a toolset with which you can “treat your business with the respect it deserves."

  28. Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    28. Angelfire

    An aging, irrelevant product. Signs of staleness everywhere. Not worth your time.

  29. Dark-star Light-star Light-star Light-star Light-star

    29. Lifeyo

    Lots of bugs, a small selection of themes and a lack of mobile options make it tough to recommend.
