Websites to build mobile websites
Builders permit us to construct websites without manual code editing. There are two kinds of builders, the on-line propietary tools provided by web hosting companies (usually intended for users to build their private sites), or those considered website design software rather than website builders, which are software running on a computer and creating pages off-line which can then publish these pages on any host.
On-line website builders
One of the advantages of on-line website builders is that no experience is needed and they provide technical support, like how to video and help files, so they are perfect for beginners. They usually make clients sign up with the company that hosts the web. Some of these companies even have examples of websites made with their website builder. They offer a range of services going from creating basic personal web pages to business or commerce ones.
A good example of an online mobile website builder is Onbile. Onbile provides a tool that lets you create a mobile website easily, using customizable templates. You just have to select your desing and customize it at will: you can change the colours, fonts, etc. Then upload your content (images, video, texts, logo) and you’re ready to go!
The websites created with this kind of editors are perfectly adapted to mobile devices, which makes them easier to navigate, providing an excellent user experience, which often results in better performance (more interactions, more visitors, customer loyalty).
Off-line website builders
Off-line builders are more flexible but also more expensive, and they are usually used by professional web designers who need to create pages for more than one client or web host.
One of the most well-known off-line website builders is KompoZer.
Responsive website builders
Building mobile websites is quite similar to building desktop websites, and now it is a must to have your website adapted to mobile devices, since these are the main point of entry for internet users these days. But it is very difficult to maintain a good user experience through all your websites if you keep more than one –not to mention the struggle to perform good SEO for all of them. This is why it is highly recommended to go for a responsive website, which is adapted to all devices. You only have to create one website, and worry about the SEO for one site.
Of course, there are also website builders that help you do this. A good example of an online responsive website builder is Zeendo. Similarly to other online website builders, Zeendo allows you to create a website using its straightforward editor and one of its cool-looking templates. Just select the template you prefer and edit its colours, texts, images, videos, etc. to make it look like you want.
The results will amaze you, as the same website will automatically adapt to all kinds of devices (mobile or otherwise: desktop or laptop computers, tablets, smart TVs…), and still look like one single website, thus enhancing user experience.
Other well-known online responsive builders are BaseKit, Yola, Jimdo, Weebly, Moonfruit or Squarespace.
