Today everyone needs a website, no venture or company that doesn’t benefit from an online presence. It can be a complicated process but you don’t need to know programming to build a website. Fortunately, there are sites dedicated to the creation of websites. Although this simplifies the process, there is still a lot to consider before venturing to hire a site that will help us in this process. That is why it is important to have several points under consideration and to know some options.
How to choose the best website creation site?
Before exploring your options you must have some definite points about your website. This will help you know if the service you are hiring will meet your needs and meet your expectations. If you go directly to hire what seems to be the best website creation site you may end up disappointed and not precisely because it turns out to be a scam or a bad platform, but because it is not made for your needs. Therefore, first of all, follow these steps to avoid future problems.
Think about your website, mind how it looks. Are there any images? Do you need to insert audio or video elements? These features have to do with the content you will find on your website. It’s important to keep them in mind because a page that handles multimedia will need more space to run smoothly and store all its content. On the other hand, a page dominated by texts is much lighter. That’s why you have to take into account this first point, the creation site you hire will need to have the capacity you need and the ability to add the features you want.
Beyond content, how does your page look? Does it have a distinctive style? Not only in terms of colors or font, but you also have to think about what kind of website it is. It is very different from the design required for a web trade than for a blog. Planning your design based on your purposes will make you have features that better target your goals. If you still don’t know what kind of website you’re going to create, I recommend reading this blog: What Type of Website Is Best for Your Business? To solve your doubts.
What do you want from your website?
This is one of the most important questions to consider. You should ask yourself what you expect to achieve with your website, having an audience that reads to you? Sell online? Publicize your brand? You don’t have to choose a single answer. It is highly recommended that you have the main objective but beyond that, you must be specific. If, for example, your main goal is to sell online, perhaps this means the possibility of making yourself known internationally or have a blog that connects with your customers. Explore which things are a priority for you and which are secondary so you know what you’ll need at the beginning of your website creation.
Consider your skills
Finally, how much are you willing to invest? There are indeed free website creation sites but these options are often too limited. It is always better to allocate a budget, even if it is for a basic plan to ensure that we will have enough space on our website and that we will have access to the tools we will need. Of course, without going bankrupt in the process.
My top 5
Below is a list of the websites that I like the most. Remember that this is my personal ranking and that it is preferable for you to evaluate whether an option suits your needs or not. Perhaps my criteria as a developer do not stick to what you are looking for (that’s why you must do the selection process above). For now, I hope this list will help you to know some alternatives.
This is a very interesting website creation site. Among its main features offers:
- Elegant insoles
- Quite creative freedom
- SEO tools
- Mobile optimization
- Implementation of apps on the website
- Unlimited sources
- Advanced design options
The most striking are its two functions of creation:
- WixADI: this option refers to Artificial Design Intelligence. When you start creating with this option you will answer a questionnaire about your website, you will be asked why type of website, what you expect to get from it, and how you would like it to look (like the questions at the beginning of this post). With your answers, artificial intelligence technology will design your website.
- Wix Editor: this is the option for those who like to be in charge. In this case, you will be controlling step by step the design of your website without artificial intelligence assistance. This modality can be more complicated for those who are building a site for the first time, although it is not as difficult as knowing a programming language.

Go daddy has other website creation options. On one side is InSight, the artificial intelligence technology that can help you create your site.
