A website builder is a software that's designed to help people create websites using predefined components. Most website builders offer a great deal of handholding, so the process is fast and easy. There's no coding involved - pre-built templates lead the way.
To anyone familiar with WordPress, Joomla, or another popular content management system (CMS), the description of a website builder may seem very similar to that of their CMS.
The distinction between a CMS and a website builder has actually become quite vague. For example, the integration between the content management features of WordPress and its page-building functionality is so strong that it's hard to tell where one ends and the other begins.
Nevertheless, a dedicated website builder can offer huge advantages for site owners, whether they’re using a CMS or not. While a CMS may limit your flexibility when it comes to design, content type, and site functionality, a full-featured site builder removes all such limitations and helps you easily create your website.
Compared to building a site from scratch, using a website builder offers a lot of advantages. A website builder should provide an easy to use interface that hides many of the technical details of site creation.
Instead of wrestling with raw HTML and trying to manually integrate complex stylesheet elements, a professional website builder will come with intuitive design capabilities and present you with helpful forms and dialogs to define all the needed site elements.
For many new site owners, getting their site published fast is a top priority—even if it's not perfect yet. The goal is to establish an online presence as quickly as possible. Even as a novice website owner with no technical skills, by dealing with predefined page elements in a user-friendly and intuitive interface, you’ll be able to have your site up and running in no time!
Website builders aren't just for inexperienced site owners, though. Design and tech-savvy users can also benefit from the ease-of-use and flexibility that website builders provide.
When comparing website builders, there is basic functionality that any worthwhile site builder must have, including the following:
HostPapa offers site-building solutions that will match perfectly with any website owner's goals.
Our shared web hosting services include access to the HostPapa Website Builder, a powerful, easy-to-use tool. It includes mobile-friendly responsive design templates and, even more important if you’re doing online sales, it's eCommerce enabled.
HostPapa also offers WordPress hosting as an option, in which case, you can use the built-in site creation features of WordPress, with no additional site-building tools, or go beyond basic design and use the popular, free WordPress website builder, WP Page Builder.
Whether you're publishing a blog, promoting your business, or selling products online, a full-featured website builder will get you on the web faster. Choose the HostPapa Website Builder and take advantage of all the needed flexibility to create a great looking design with all the features your site needs.
Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Website Builder is an easy-to-use website builder design tool that allows you to create and manage your website without previous technical or design experience. Choose a professionally designed template, modify your colours and layout, import your images and photos, place your website copy where you want it, and then publish it live to the web on your domain name.
HostPapa Website Builder’s simple design means anyone can create a great website with a wide range of styles and templates - no technical programming or design experience is necessary.
When it comes to choosing the right Website Builder for you, there are a few important things to consider.
It’s smart to factor in your familiarity with web technology, but there's an even more important question you should be asking yourself: How technically complicated does your site need to be?
Even tech-savvy users will seek to minimize the technical complexity of their site. By defining the baseline website functionality needed to publish a blog, promote a business, or sell products online, site owners can right-size their efforts.
When taking that approach, a full-featured website builder is often found to be more than capable of providing all the needed features, functionality, and flexibility. That allows users at any skill level to dodge unnecessary complex solutions in favor of a helpful website builder that offers them exactly what they need.
While most website builders will give you templates that were professionally designed, even presenting options that were created specifically for blogs and other site-types, they don't all offer the flexibility to add advanced functionalities like a shopping cart.
If eCommerce is your goal, be sure to choose a website builder that offers online store templates with built-in shopping carts, billing forms, and easy integration with transaction processing applications. HostPapa offers an eCommerce website builder with all these features as part of our one-click-install eCommerce hosting solution.
Once you take these things into consideration, you can review our Website Builder plans to find the plan that best suits your needs.
Yes, using our professionally designed mobile-responsive templates, your website will look great on all devices including desktops, smartphones, and tablets.
There are several types of tools available:
We have an extensive library of videos, help guides and tutorials to help you with the tool. If you need further assistance, we offer 24/7 support by telephone, live chat, and email support ticket. Existing customers can submit a support ticket via their HostPapa Dashboard. Furthermore, if you need extended help with using the tool - you can also book a 30-minute one-on-one training session with one of our PapaSquad Experts.

You cannot import a site directly into Website Builder, but by using the hundreds of available styles and templates in Website Builder you can easily improve on it. With some styles, you can even upload your own background image to make it really easy.
It sure is; however, each domain (website) requires its own HostPapa Website Builder plan. You can add HostPapa Website Builder (to any domain you own, at any time) by visiting the Add Services tab within your HostPapa Dashboard.
Yes, you can! HostPapa Website Builder lets you customize your site with your own photos, images, audio, and videos. Concerned about bandwidth and storage? For full details on HostPapa's usage policy, visit our Terms of Service.
