Website building software provides an efficient and effective way to create a professional looking website at a fraction of the cost of hiring a professional.

Build Your Website With Go Daddy Today! Most website designers charge at least $1,000 for a basic website - and often much more. However, what they don't tell you is that you can easily build your own website, and often for a fraction of that cost. These website builders can offer hundreds of website templates to get you started. Many even offer inexpensive hosting services and domain name options that are quick and easy to maintain.

But not all website builders are the same. All the different products and services offer a variety of features and costs. Before you choose a website building product or company, you should consider the following factors:

  • Templates and features. Does the company offer a solid selection of website templates and necessary features to create the right website for you?
  • Ease of use. How easy is it to build a website given the organization of the website?
  • Cost. How much does the company charge and does that include hosting?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Website Builders available today. We hope these reviews help you create the perfect website that meets your needs!

90 SECOND WEBSITE BUILDER

Webs

WEBS

We liked the extra features Webs offered its customers along with a professional website. The range in membership options makes Webs a flexible option worth considering. Read More... Visit

Tip Top Website

TIP TOP WEBSITE

Tip Top Website failed to wow us. We would only recommend Tip Top Website to those who would be satisfied with the limited $1.95/month membership because it is the lowest price featured in our reviews. Read More... Visit

Jigsy

JIGSY

Jigsy is a software for those wanting to publish and edit a professional blog or create multiple websites. We did find the customer service lacking, features and themes limited and the cost higher than others. Read More... Visit

LM Soft

WEB CREATOR PRO

We thought for the associated price of Web Creator Pro we'd be reviewing the Cadillac of website builders - but that usurprisingly wasn't the case. When compared to the other software programs featured in our review, this one fails in comparison. Read More... Visit

Yola

YOLA

Yola provides significantly fewer features than compared to other programs reviewed. We felt this would seriously inhibit users from creating the website with all the bells and whistles they so desired. Read More... Visit

Features Every Website Should Have

Websites are a major marketing tool, whether you’re a one-man show or a large corporation with thousands of employees. In the age of technology, potential clients want to be able to click a few buttons on any search engine, and find what they are looking for – including products and services.

If you are among the service or product providers who do not yet have a website – but are considering building one – there are a few features you should be certain to include in order to make the website both functional and user-friendly.

The kinds of features your website should contain are dependent, in part, on the type of website you are building. Business owners will need to have a few more features than others, including pages which list your products and services. However, all websites should include the following basic information:

  • Friendly Design. If your website is hard to use, or it is unclear exactly what kind of business or service you are offering, potential clients won’t even bother to look around. They simply will leave and go to another website that is easier to interpret and use.
  • Contact Information So many times, customers find themselves hunting for how to contact the business. Either the information isn’t included at all, or it is poorly placed, making it difficult to locate. Being presented with an easy way to contact the business – including telephone numbers, email and even the inclusion of a “contact us” form – is one of the most vital pieces of information necessary for inclusion. It does you no good to have a great website with great products if you fail to tell potential clients how to get in touch with you.
  • Easy Navigation Tools Too often, website creators are trying to make the pages flashy instead of functional. With many people now accessing websites from their Smartphones, iPads or other mobile devices, flash over functionality is not necessarily a good thing. Clients who are in a hurry will want to get on, find what they’re looking for and be done.
  • Social Media Links Social media has become another valuable marketing tool in the 21st century. Sites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google+ are being widely used as a means of communication and advertisement. If your company has any of these social media accounts, be sure to link them to the website in an easy-to-find location.
  • Security Features. If you offer clients the option to order your products – and pay for them – on your website, then you will need to include an SSL certificate on the site. SSL encrypts communications between the website operator and its clients, allowing for information such as credit card numbers and bank account information to be shared without fear of someone else receiving the information. Companies which provide SSL certificates are VeriSign, GeoTrust, TrustE and Entrust.
  • Mobile-Friendly Version. Smartphones, iPads and other android devices quickly are replacing traditional computers and laptops as the main way for people to access the World Wide Web. Websites which are heavy with flash features can take forever to load onto a Smartphone or other android device, leaving users frustrated. Offering a mobile-friendly version of your website will ensure that people can still visit your site, even if on the go.
