Hello,

I am planning to design a website and I am confused between WordPress and Website builder. Can you guys suggest me which one is better for my website?

First of all, let me clear one thing that WordPress is a CMS, not a website builder. The working is totally different of WordPress and website builders. Website builders are easier to use and less flexible. On the contrary, CMS's are flexible. Website builders typically have a visual drag-and-drop interface. For example, Weebly, a website builder. Whereas CMS like WordPress doesn't have a visual interface. Instead, it has a form editor. I have explained the upsides and downsides for both website builders and WordPress now it totally depends on you what you need. I hope the mentioned information is sufficient and helpful for you.

Yes, I agree with the Gandhar!!

WordPress and Website Builder is completely different and each has its own uniqueness. You can use both of them to design a website because they are easy to utilize.

If you want a website without heavy features, then opt for website builder and if you want a website with heavy features then opt for WordPress hosting. But there are multiple site builder options available in the market that offer better features in comparison with other CMS.

I will suggest WordPress because it is easy to design the website. In addition, you can prefer WordPress only if you have coding knowledge and sense to set the style for your website. If you study WordPress in depth then you will observe that it is complicated and tough to follow some steps. Like for e.g, how to modify pages? and more.

Both options provide a powerful and flexible structure in which to build your website, as well as a system for managing and publishing your content online. But which one should you use? Which one is better?

When to use a website builder,
Need to get online within an hour.
Have a very low budget.
Need a fairly simple website, such as a blog or a one-page portfolio.
Have no idea how to code HTML or CSS.
Donít expect a lot of traffic.
Donít need email addresses or are willing to pay a different service for email.

When to use WordPress,
You have to wait at least a few days to go live.
Need to make a complex, large-scale website.
You have maximum budget or spend more time to get something highly customizable.
Want more control over the final look and feature set of your website.
If you have paid hosting then you can expect a lot of traffic
Need email addresses (from the hosting)

I recommend you start with a host that offers both WordPress support and a free website builder.

In some website builders, you get limitations on adding the pages, if you are thinking to add more content your website.

Hello,

Flexibility:- As compared to WordPress CMS, Website Builders are less reliable. In website builder, you can manage personal or small websites, but have some limits when it comes to full-fledged website management. WordPress is an open-source website creation and management (CMS) tool, it has a lot of free themes and plugins that give you complete freedom to create/modify your website.

Ease of Use:- Many of the website builders have drag-and-drop features which make them very easy to use for the newbie. Thus, you actually do not need any technical background to manage your website content. WordPress is not a drag-and-drop editor. You have to work a little using their editor to modify the layouts or format of your content.

User Support:- Website builders are very easy to use, but if you have any query or issue regarding features then find a lot of documental support with regards to their usage. WordPress has a big organization when it comes to helping and technical support. For this, you can read and participate in their forums, post direct questions, and get all sorts of queries resolved.

Layouts & themes:- Website builders have built-in templates which can be directly used to design a website through these layouts. WordPress offers thousands of free as well paid templates.

Costing:- Most of the web hosting providers give easy website builder tools as a part of their hosting package. In WordPress, the costing depends on the WordPress plan you will take, buying a WordPress hosting is more beneficial than using website builder.
