Thread: Website Builders

Hey guys, what do you think about website builders?
I am looking right now at the hPage website builder because I am planning to create a website. The only problem is, I have zero idea on how to code or use basic HTML. I have been reading some blogs for a while now and they say that website builders are the way to go if you are on a budget or you're looking for something affordable.
Now, I have chosen hPage because of the features they seem to have. Well, for one, I don't have to code anymore, two, the websites apparently are SEO optimized, and third, they have additional features of business (and I can also get a domain and custom e-mail there).
For you, what are your thoughts on website creators for beginners? Or should I just have a website made (although it's very expensive?) My plan is to make a fish hobby website.

What type of your website? normal website or an ecommerce website?
Do you use Wordpress?
If yes, I can suggest you some best website builders for this platform.

A website with informational articles targeted to fish hobbyists.
It's gonna be a blog so Wordpress is out of the question. My plan is to have articles up for long-term use. I read about hPage having SEO optimization so I am considering that website creator a lot. I want a website where if someone searches for something, my article will come up easily in the search.

So, why is Wordpress out of the question?
Don't waste your time with hpage, you don't need it. Plus all website builders tie your hands. You can only design pages the way their builder does it.

Okay, thanks guys. I am just a super newbie with this whole website making thing. Decided to go with WP
For blogging, it has a blog feature but you have to pay a monthly fee for it. Designs are okay. Very minimalistic but feels like it's stuck in 2010's. Editing webpages is fairly easy once you get the hang of it but I feel like this web builder is only good if you want something 'permanent' (ex. a business website where you post updates once a month, your menu, business details/about page). Their blogging feature is okay too but not UX friendly for regular bloggers and compared to wordpress, WP still reigns king.

Yes, there are website builders that don't require having technical skills. These are the so-called drag and drop website builders such as SitePad website builder, Wix, and Weebly. Another option is to hire a freelance developer and buy an affordable theme. Because web development companies usually charge a lot more.
