Easiest Website Builder Ever?

Filed as News on March 24, 2008 12:55 pm

Joomla, Drupal and WordPress, oh my!

These words might mean something to you, but they mean absolutely nothing to the tech-deaf layperson. Make room for WebNode, a quick and dirty way to build a Website or blog, relatively painlessly.

For folks who can’t be bothered with downloads and uploads, WebNode allows you to build a feature-rich Website using drag-and-drop functionality. After a free registration, users choose from several dozen customizable templates, and round out their online destination with series of gadgets and widgets.

I realize that most readers of this blog are far too sophisto for this type of site builder. However, if you’re like me, and often looking to get people off your back who want you to build them a blog, here’s your out. Using WebNode, even a third grader can accept Paypal payments and create an RSS feed.

Webmail, domain forwarding and basic statistics are among the add ons.

    I have been using pagebuzz.com which I think is the easiest site builder. I tried wordpress but it is too limited and really not designed for e-commerce. I will look into webnode but most of the things I have seen for us dummies really fall short on features.

    I found an easy and user oriented website builder called Mi Imagen Online, check out at http://www.miimagenonline.com

    They offer domain, hosting, non-limited space, an online web Editor, no installation or configuration, best practices oriented, and many other features like WebNode, however, it seems more easy to use.

    Is just another option !

    Webnode is great — however the problem is all content are stored on their server, is there some way I can download back all files to my own PC for backup purpose?

    Personally I used Dreamweaver for HTML, or A4Desk for building flash websites. This way all files are stored on my own PC, and I can upload the files to my own web host (or my client’s web host) account.

    I have tried WordPress and other CMS software, but in order to support them on client’s server, I often have to install for them the entire WordPress system first, which sometimes take longer time than building the website.

    Hello. After reading this post, I tried to build my own website, by using WebNode. Sadly, it was a bit difficult to use.
    I then searched the web for another website builder and found this one.
    It is much more easier to use and also offers more features than WebNode. It’s an 4 easy steps DIY website. I recommend it to anyone who wants to build their own website in a matter of minutes.

    I agree with Karl. Webnode is not that great. There are install problems and the templates look very simple. This really belongs to the MySpace set. If you want to really do a business site and go pro, I do think you go with WordPress or even what Google has to offer. By the way, I’ve heard about Weebly, which I hear is good too.

    Viviti.com is my fav builder. It is simple, but at the same time offers tons of flexibility. Webnode is just Ok. Didn’t really do it for me though.

    Thanks for the article, Webnode indeed is a really good base for starting a new Website project. During the last 5 years from this article Webnode became more and more professional and you can build multilingual sites or webshops with the software. We made an in depth review of Webnode which could also be interesting: http://www.the-best-website-builders.com/webnode-review/
