10 Best Website Builders Reviewed (I bought & signed up)

Overall, website builders are great for beginners or small businesses looking to get a professional (and affordable) option off the ground in a matter of days (instead of the weeks or months it would take for a custom site).

While there are a ton of good (SiteBuilder.com & Wix.com), reputable options out there to choose from, there are also a ton of terrible ones too.

I put this review together to provide an unbiased look at what your best options are. I signed up for each of the most popular ones, paying for annual accounts in most cases while setting up a test site to try out the service and monitor it’s performance over the course of a few months.

These sites (as I find them) will contain information to help you set up your website with good instructions.

WebsiteSetup
Robert Mening from Sweden has a great site that’s dedicated to helping people get a website up & running.
He’s super helpful & friendly and the site is very much beginner minded (which most of us are) with well laid out & clear instructions with screenshots even!
He is an affiliate with BlueHost which is one of the top webhosting companies I’d recommend.
You can get discounted hosting through him which gives you an even better cost rate & supports Rob’s work. His guide also takes you through setting up your website via BlueHost so it’s a good deal.

Just as an additional note to Rob’s guide…
When it comes time for selecting a theme, the church has a dedicated theme which the General Conference is continually developing (ALPS – Adventist Living Pattern System) that you can freely download from here >>> ALPS for WordPress

On the theme selection page there’s an Upload Theme option – select that & upload the theme into WordPress & you are good to go.
