Choosing a Website Maker

There are many different website builders out there, and choosing a website maker can be difficult. There are so many different versions of software available, some free and some not, as well as dozens of site builders that you use over the internet. How do you narrow down the choices with so many out there?
Your first obstacle is to decide if you are going to use a website maker that is online or software based.

There are advantages and disadvantages to both. Website builders that are software packages typically use FTP, for file transfer protocol, to load your site onto the internet. So, if you are going to use one of these site builders, you will need to have a web host that supports FTP transfers. This does not include every host, so you will want to make sure that the host you have chosen and the website maker you choose go hand in hand. On the other hand, if you choose to use a website maker that is internet based, it is likely tied to a web host already, and you don't have to worry about how you are going to make the site go live after it has been built.

Another thing to consider when looking at a website maker is what is available with the package as far as features and benefits are concerned. Some website builders will come with few stock images, few templates, and more ability to customize with your own creativity. However, these site builders may not be best for beginners who really need a point and click solution. There are other website builders that offer more detailed and complex packages that include everything you need to build a website from scratch. These are better for beginners. However, these software packages cost a lot more money, and the most cost effective way to find a website maker of this type is the internet application option.

The best website maker is one that offers the flexibility of most basic software packages along with the ease of a point and click interface. There are few website builders that offer this complex software, and it is generally very expensive to buy this software. However, finding online site builders that offer this flexibility and ease of use are easier to find and will be much more cost effective.

In the end, it is all about preference. You have to choose the website maker that will work best for you and your needs. If you are a beginner, you will want to choose the most simple website builder you can find, with the most options for customization. If you are a veteran, you might be able to get away with something less fancy, but you will have a more simplistic site to show for it.
