Common questions from new website creators

Over the years we’ve heard these questions over and over again. I hope we can answer some of yours too! If your question isn’t included here, please feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of this page.


Can I really do it myself or do I need a web designer (and what will it cost)?

That’s a really common question and the answer is… well, it depends. Please keep in mind that in order to work with a developer you’ll have to be prepared to have a budget of at least $1.500 and that’s the low end. For any changes and further developments, you’ll pay your developer’s hourly rate. Then there is the ongoing hosting as well as domain costs (which will be another $100 per year more or less).

Using a website builder, you can calculate roughly $80-150 per year (all-inclusive), depending on the provider you’ll be using.

In many cases, it’s actually a very good approach to familiarizing yourself with the task of creating a website. Even if, in the end, you decide to hire a web designer, you’ll have a much better idea of what person you should be looking for and what your website should look like. Our free ebook “Website Creation for Absolute Beginners” will explain all the important parts of a website project.

How does this whole domain name thing work?

The domain name is the web address that your website uses. Our domain is called websitetooltester.com and you can see it in your browser’s address bar:

Such a domain costs right around $8-15 per year, depending on the top-level domain (for example .com, .co.uk or .net). You can purchase your domain name at the usual places such as Namecheap or GoDaddy.

If you are going to use a website builder you can usually purchase it there. That makes handling it slightly easier as you’ll only be dealing with one company. If you are going to use WordPress or you’ll be programming the website yourself, you will also need web space, where you can upload your website’s files and data. With a website builder, you don’t need web space as it’ll be already included.

How can I add additional functionality to my website?

You may require additional apps for your website like an online booking engine, event planning, site search, live chat or even a chatbot. Some website builders like Wix, Shopify, WordPress, and Weebly have a dedicated app store where you can add hundreds of plugins with just a few clicks.

Wix’s App Market

But even if there isn’t an app store you can simply integrate apps using the source code they provide. Usually, that’s as easy as copy & paste.

Allows you to specify platform-specific manifest values. Example manifest:

{"name""nw-demo","version""0.1.0","main""index.html","window"{"frame"false,"toolbar"false},"platformOverrides"{"win"{"window"{"toolbar"true}},"win32"{"window"{"frame"true,"toolbar"false}},"win64"{"window"{"frame"true}},"osx"{...},"osx32"{...},"osx64"{...},"linux"{...},"linux32"{...},"linux64"{...},}

The platform-specific options will override the others only when building that platform only and the property will be removed.

For example, when building for Windows, the manifest generated and put into the end app (from the manifest above) would be:

{"name""nw-demo","version""0.1.0","main""index.html","window"{"frame"true,"toolbar"false}}

Additionally, when specifying multiple version of the same platform such as «win», «win32», and «win64», changes will be applied such that «win» applies to both «win32» and «win64», while «win32» and «win64» apply only to the specified version. Also note that «win32» and «win64» can further override changes made in «win».

What’s The Best Website Builder For SEO?

There isn’t one. Choosing between Weebly, Squarespace or Wix will not rank your website any differently in Google. Don’t believe anyone who tells you otherwise.

That being said, there are technical SEO features that you need in a website builder— it’s just that most website builders include these features.

There are four SEO features in particular that are critical in a website builder. Think of them as the minimum required for Google to notice you. From there you will need links and quality content to outperform your competitors:

1. Mobile-Friendly Themes

For many years Google had two indexes: desktop and mobile. The desktop index was for desktop users and the mobile index was for mobile users.

But that’s all changed.


In March 2018, Google announced the beginning of the mobile-first index— basically Google now uses the mobile index for both desktop and mobile users. So the mobile version of your website is more important than the desktop.

This why it’s critical that your website builder has mobile-friendly themes. Fortunately most website builders do.

2. Customizable Meta Titles and Descriptions

Every page has a meta title and meta description that Google uses in their results:

Google uses your pages meta title and description in their results.

Putting your keyword in the meta title will help you rank for that keyword— though putting the keyword in your meta description won’t directly help you rank, instead meta description is important because it’s an opportunity to entice searchers to click on your webpage.

Almost all website builders let you customize your meta title and description— but because it’s so critical, it’s worth being sure about.

3. SSL

SSL certificates give websites the «secure» icon in a browser and adds an ‘s’ to the http— making it https:

This site is secured by SSL.

Google announced SSL as a ranking signal in 2014— and when Google explicitly announces something is a ranking signal, it’s usually good to implement it.

Most website builders include SSL in paid plans— but some do not. Check before you buy.

4. Performance

Google has said that site speed is a signal they use to rank pages. Fortunately, website builders tend to have good performance infrastructure— especially the major website builders such as Weebly, Squarespace and Wix which host millions of websites.

The two best tools to check your website performance is Google Page Speed Insights and WebPageTest.org.

S.Builder

S.Builder — универсальная система для создания и поддержки веб-сайтов, разработанная российской компанией «СИБИЭС-Групп». На сегодняшний день S.Builder входит в список лидеров на рынке CMS в России, благодаря своей простоте и легкости в управлении.

Преимущества

К главным достоинствам данной системы относятся:

  • не ысокие требования к ресурсам хостинга;
  • полное отсутствие ограничений в дизайне;
  • расширяемость системы с использованием ее собственных средств;
  • обновление и профессиональная поддержка.

Кроме того, установка и работа с S.Builder не требует знаний в области языков PHP и HTML, так как все «общение» с системой происходит непосредственно в визуальном режиме.

Особенности

Административный интерфейс системы использует динамическую загрузку изменений, построенную на технологии AJAX. Это дает возможность работать с системой на приемлемой скорости, даже если сам канал связи довольно медленный. Последняя версия CMS S.Builder корректно работает со всеми популярными браузерами.

Стоит отметить, что никаких делений системы на редакции разработчики не предусматривают. Пользователь сам выбирает, какие модули и дополнения ему нужны, а какие нет. Такая политика «СИБИЭС-Групп» позволяет покупателям значительно экономить, отказываясь от тех расширений, которые им не нужны.

Важной особенностью S.Builder стало то, что данная система полностью ориентирована на эффективную оптимизацию веб-сайта под самые разные поисковые запросы. Для этого были задействованы такие функции, как: статическая генерация и реальные адреса всех страниц сайта, редактирование ключевых слов, описаний и заголовков веб-страниц и проч

Website builder software: Can I install it on my computer too?

PC and Mac website software used to be very popular – maybe you can even remember Microsoft Frontpage or Macromedia Dreamweaver, as it used to be called. The advantage of such programs is that you typically pay (a larger amount) upfront and can build as many websites as you like. The downside is that you need to take care of hosting your website yourself, which incurs additional costs.

These days most people clearly prefer hosted website builders such as Wix, Weebly, and Jimdo due to their added simplicity. You can edit your site from different computers, no matter if it’s a Mac or PC. If you absolutely want an installable website builder software, I would recommend you check out Mobirise. The basic version is free, you only pay if you purchase one of their premium designs or extensions.

Tip #6: We often see our readers over-analyzing their website project, spending days comparing every little feature. What usually works much better is to just sign-up for a free trial, dipping your feet into the water! This way you’ll see very quickly whether this is for you or not.

What’s The Best Free Website Builder?


I’ve actually done a deep dive on this in my in-depth look at free website builders. So you’ll want to read that.

Advertisements are the major limitation of almost all free website builder plans.

These ads range from the obnoxious…

Constanct Contact includes a large, bright blue ad on free websites.

… To the more tolerable:

Webflow includes a small ad on free websites.

The other big limitation with free website builders is domain names.

Otherwise you’ll have to use a free subdomain. Some website builders like Weebly offer simple, readable free subdomains ()… While others like Wix are quite clunky ().

Can You Move Or Export A Website Once It’s Built On a Website Builder?

Unfortunately no, you can’t. It’s also really difficult to move on existing website to another website builder without just manually copying text and images.

This is a common question I get and admittedly, one of the downsides of a website builder.

You might think that website builders don’t let customers export or move their website because it’s a good way to lock them in, but there are actually some very good technical reasons why website builder websites can’t be moved.

Modern website are more complex than websites in the past. They aren’t just HTML, CSS and Javascript being passed from a server. Those assets are optimized, cached and accessed through special content delivery networks (among other things) to ensure performance. The reality of disentangling all of this from the website builder and moving into a third party host is messy and would require a level of technical competence that most users of website builders don’t have.

Plus, features that require server-side processing (such as forms, ecommerce) would not work.

What kinds of sites can be created with a website builder?

templates by Wix

Website builders are perfect for small businesses, portfolios, photographers, online stores, restaurants, and hotels, as well as clubs and associations.

On the other hand, sites that require a database (real-estate listings, job boards) aren’t so easy to create. They require a different tool and more time. Your best bet in this case: WordPress.

And since we get this question frequently: No, hypercomplex sites like Airbnb, eBay, or Facebook are completely out of reach. You’ll need to hire a development team to build a website like that.

If you’re looking to sell digital downloads, specifically, then check out this complete guide.

So which are the best website builders, and which ones should you avoid?

What’s The Best Ecommerce Website Builder?

I did a survey of 944 real-life users of ecommerce website builders and found that Shopify had the highest customer satisfaction— at 97%.

Why is Shopify loved so much? Well, the important thing to understand about ecommerce websites is that they quickly get complex.

A Shopify store dashboard.

A major reason why Shopify is easy to use is it’s App Store. There are hundreds of apps that will add specific features to your store. These apps cover shipping, marketing, retention, SEO, customer support and more. The App Store allows Shopify to maintain a simple core, while still allowing you to add sophisticated features when you need them.

Shopify’s app store is home to hundreds of apps— and a huge reason why users love Shopify.
