Web design tools like WordPress, Squarespace, Wix, and many others are popping up all around. Some of them claims that "with the use of their website builder you will build a site within minutes." Others claim they provide all the power of Photoshop plus native code combined.
Our experts researched and compared all the prominent website builders and  distilled the results which is included in this article.
In this article instead of doing deep study we focused  on answering the most pressing question: Which website builder is best suited for you or your web development goals?

Best web Builders for the non-technical :

Squarespace :

 

one of the most widely-used website builders which  focus on  providing a simple means to set up a beautiful, responsive site within minutes without having professional design or development skills.

It works as follows : It provided a selection of twenty or so templates. choose one template then customize it through a sophisticated but limited toolset.

The Drawback of this builder is : Squarespace gets roughly a thousand new users per day — every base template is chosen an average of 50 times daily, means that thousands of Squarespace sites look suspiciously similar. 

However, if you’re looking to build a fully functional, beautiful website for yourself or your small business, Squarespace is the best solution. 


WIX : 

As Squarespace, Wix is also a tool for the non-technical.  It provides a sleek drag and drop editor that allows you to easily customize your template of choice.  Wix offers Hundreds of themes to start from.
Wix’s basic plan is free, but for advanced options like an ecommerce template or additional bandwidth — you’ll be looking at up to $25 USD per month.

Best Website builders for developers :


WordPress: 

WordPress is the most popular blog-oriented content management systems. It’s old, and just as unshakeable. The reason for being the most popular website builder is : its Completely free.

An  spacious community has grown around WordPress, resulting in an unparalleled volume and quality of both add-ons and support. From SEO optimization tools to feature-rich ecommerce systems, the WordPress plugin ecosystem has everything you need to create a website of any type.

However, integrating WordPress add-ons, modifying templates, and setting up hosting is not for the non-technical. Due to the piecemeal nature of the WordPress ecosystem, you’re expected to connect a lot of the technical dots yourself. In other words, WordPress is made first and foremost for developers.


Craft :

You won’t find the comforts and distractions of a drag and drop UI in craft. Instead, Craft is a streamlined tool for developers who aren’t afraid of getting their hands dirty setting up a custom content management system within the confines of an existing UI.

In short, Craft is powerful CMS that makes a clear distinction between developer and user. As a developer, you get fine-grained control over data. As a client, you get segregated access to modifying that data in a way that isn’t overwhelming and doesn’t conflict with the developer’s implementation.

Best for professional designers

 

Webflow :

It offers all of the power of WordPress with none of the cost or frustration that relying on a developer for assistance entails. It’s technically more in-depth than Squarespace, yet still designed with the non-technical user in mind. Also unlike Squarespace, Webflow provides control over every component in an interface. You’re not bound to the look of a pre-existing a template.

Webflow is the website builder best suited for agency and freelance designers who are creating custom websites for clients: In addition to allowing you to start designing from a responsive template, Webflow also allows you to design from scratch. Hence, you can build out sites to clients’ exact specifications.

 Webydo :

Like Webflow, Webydo boasts a powerful drag-and-drop design editor that prioritizes pixel-perfect design. It allows you to create precise, responsive designs with little hassle. Webydo is also a CMS: As you design your site, it attempts to generate a back-end interface so that you (and your clients) can later modify the site’s content without hassle.

There are only a few basic templates provided for you to work with, so it’s mostly up to you to design from scratch. Once you’ve grasped Webydo’s editor, this may not be much of a challenge, but it’s time consuming given how much work you have to put in every time you want to build a new site.

Webydo runs between $9 to $85 USD monthly. The least expensive package allows you to create one site, and their most expensive package allows up to 250. They also offer a free plan, which allows for one site with a total of five pages.
