What Website Creator Should I Use?

by | Aug 20, 2021 | Blog, Online Operations, Websites | 0 comments

Depending on your type of business, you may need a specific type of website creation platform.


With an abundance of different website builders and hosts on the internet, it’s nearly impossible to know which one is the best for your particular business without doing a little research beforehand.

If you are planning on having a website that lasts more than a year or two, then a WordPress website is the highest recommended website creation platform.

If you are simply trying to get your foot in the “online door” or dip your toes into the “internet pool”, a no-code website may be a better option for you. 

But if you getting in, might as well cannonball!

What’s the difference between no-code and open source website creation platforms?


Online no-code website builders like wix and godaddy are good options for those who don’t have technical expertise and want to create a basic website, but you will quickly find limitations from no-code online website builders, as they provide a specific set of features/options for its users.


Also, you will be highly limited when using code to enhance the website. It’s almost like you are renting the site from them for a year, two etc. WordPress is a free, open-source website creation platform that will allow you to self host your own website and plug in and plug out features as needed.


Even Go-Daddy agrees WordPress is preferable:



Rental Apartment VS Custom Built Home


Think of it this way, if you rent an all inclusive apartment, your name will be associated with that area. You are able to pick from layouts and customize the apartment to your own liking but when the lease expires, you either renew or move on. In a sense this is how no-code websites work, your domain showcases that rented home online. Which guarantees you a spot and security on the internet.


WordPress is the equivalent to buying a lot and building your own property. You are able to customize it more in depth and prepare to build off of it. Users can try features out, take features off, redesign, accept payments, have memberships and more. On the flipside you are responsible to find a host provider, maintain and keep security updated and will need to hire someone to help build and make sure growth plans are on track. Similar to a homeowner having a reliable general contractor. 

In Conclusion

If you have plans to run your website for the long term, then you should not use a no-code online website builder as their monthly subscriptions will cost you a lot more than having a website hosted on your own shared hosting.
