A website builder is a type of software or web application that provides users with a simplified platform to create and manage professional-looking websites. By using a website builder (in combination with a control panel in some cases), users can quickly and easily create a website without having to learn HTML or other coding languages. They are often designed with drag-and-drop features and templates that allow users to create a website in a matter of minutes with minimal effort.
What Are The Main Website Builders?
According to the recent official statistics, the most popular website builders are Wix, Weebly, and Squarespace. These allow users to drag and drop content onto their page, create forms, and add custom design elements.
