What is Website Builder Software?

Website builder software is used to build websites without manual code editing. This solution consists of two main categories:

Online proprietary products provided by web hosting vendors. These can be utilized by users to create their private site. Some vendors let the site owner to install alternative commercial or open source tools. Complex solutions of this kind are also termed Content Management Systems.

Offline software operates on a computer and builds and publishes web pages on any host. These are considered as website design platforms rather than website builders.

Online website builders require users to register with the web hosting vendor. The range of services includes creating basic personal web pages and social network content and extends to creating complete eCommerce and business websites. The chief advantage of an online website builder is it is fast and easy to use, and does not need prior experience.

Offline web builders are meant for professional web designers who need to build pages for more than one web host or client. They need at least a basic understanding of CSS and HTML. Offline builders are more adaptable than online builders, but more costly. However, there are a few free open source website builders and those that offer a freemium license model.
