    I started with website builder in 2015, shortly after purchasing a website I learned that it would be a total of 6 months before I could get SEO upgrade, (an error on their behalf). I tried to upload a custom site that would rank higher on google onl y to find out that Website builder doesn’t support top notch websites. No biggie, right! I could simply change my domain to a different hosting company and attach it to my new custom website, right! WRONG! Website builder blocked my domain for 3 months. I have begged and pleaded with these people but to no avail. I have a small business that depends on internet to drive business. Website builder’s practices are unethical. I have paid what was required, my choosing to better my company by building a better website should serve a learning lesson and a chance to up their game, however there answer to losing business is to hold your domain hostage. In short, their pretty sh#tty in their actions.

    I am 58 and totally new to website building. After checking several of the most advertised webbuilding sites like Wix, GoDaddy, WordPress I came to realise what I needed was a website builder that (1) is suitable for a beginner (2) allows to view and test all its tools BEFORE paying (3) is straight and upfront about its pricing. I am pleased to say websitebuilder met all my criterias. The winning factor was the free for personal use option which gave me full confidence to learn and experiment.It took me c.2 months to complete my first website. In the process I wished they had some additional tools (e.g. alignment of objects on the page) but even without that I successfully completed a 100% customised website starting from a blank template. Websitebuilder also provides a nice selection of free icons and photos which can be edited. All tools are straightforward to use and just need to get used to. When it was all done the domain was bought and the website is published. There was one issue with payment but it only took one short phone call for it to be fixed. Last but not least, the company is based in the UK where I live (most website builders are USA based). Overall I am very satisfied with websitebuilder which is why i have decided to write this review. Thank you to Mr. Owen, I already have recommended to several of my younger friends. God bless.

    Alright. So the website itself is beautiful. Editing and making it customised is even easier. This ain't no blog, it is a website. My purpose was to add some long blog entries on a regular basis. Since, it doesn't have any reference to where to look for help if needed, I was a bit disappointed at first. But the customer service seems good.I have not tried other websites tbh but this one seems legit.I have been using this website for over 2 months now. Lots of creative designs, custom logos you can upload, blog entries looks very organised and you can publish your website within minutes.Now, price is a bit much for a website and if you are looking to buy our own domain, it is $9 CAD. So pretty expensive.

    This is the worst company I have ever dealt with. The hold times are over 20 minutes, and call backs never occur. I purchased the tailored service and no one called me back for over 2 weeks. I ended up having to cancel the tailored service, and th ey in turn cancelled my free website and will not allow me to access the data I created for free. When I called customer service to dispute this, the person hung up on me. STAY AWAY, USE GO DADDY!!!!!!!!!!!! They are top rated for customer service and I wish I had known this before I dealt with website builder.

    WebsiteBuilder is nothing but a great website builder, built around scammers. Their "support" team, is non-existing, their addons are ridiculous and the power of the website slows down over time, forcing you to almost buy their "Supercharge" addon, w hich does nothing but switch the server location.You can buy addons that other hosts provide as a free feature. They try to trick you into buying their "Social Booster" promising immediate change. Stupid.The great website builder will make you fall in love, but in the end, they will try to scam you. Sorry.I do not recommend them, at all.

    I called yesterday with a question...received a home answering machine. Called again and got the answering machine. Then whomevers home it was called me back (seemed odd but okay). I had a basic question...do I have to have a specific package wher e I can register multiple domain names that will take me to the same website? I explained it 2 different way and finally she understood. Got a wishy/washy answer but figured the answer was no. Today received 2 auto-emails from some account manager guy saying "I have just been notified that you tried to place an order a few minutes ago, but didn’t complete the upgrade. I’m sorry if you experienced any issues. To apologize for any problems you've had I would like to offer you a special discount." On both emails replied asked what is "priority support". This should have been a red flag because priority support should be automatic...not an additional cost. I went ahead and purchased a premium package which came with a free domain name. I'm pretty sure I clicked on one year but it said I purchased 2 years. A confirmation email said to email back if I accidentally chose the wrong package. So I did and got an auto-mail back with some kind of ticket number for the correction. I proceeded to begin registering a domain name on a separate transaction. For some reason their website got stuck and I wasn't able to scroll all the way down. I even refreshed the page and for some reason it would stick. So I unchecked all the boxes for additioanl stuff and clicked the very top of the blue button at the bottom of the screen. All I could see was the very top of the box. I figured it was a "Continue to checkout" button. But noooo...it was the actual payment button. I said well I guess I just purchased it - how much was it? So I checked my email and all it said was that I purchased it and did not give an amount. After 4 hours I finally decided to call the company. I got a bad connection from a nice lady I couldn't understand. She said the registered domain name was $25.06!! What? Turns out the domain name was $15 and they somehow auto-checked the box saying "privacy something something". $25.06 to simply register a name was crazy. The email didn't even say for how long. The lady kindly changed my 2 year agreement to 1 year. But after hearing about the $25.06 I lost total faith in the company. So after she reversed that charge I asked her to cancel the whole thing. She said that's fine except for the 15.96 domain registry amount from the premium package deal. So this is how it works. They say Free Domain Registry with account but what really happens is websitebuilder pays the registry out of the money you pay. Well they can't refund all your money because then they would be out $15.96. She would not refund that amount. I reminded her about 100% satisfaction guaranteed. I eventually had to speak to a supervisor. He/she did not speak to me but quickly told her to refund the remaining $15.96. She did explain that with the $15.96 I would own the domain for a year and NOT be under contract with websitebuilder (so no reoccuring charge), but it was too late I totally lost faith the in company. I should have trusted my gut instinct when I saw an additional charge for priority support. Not a horrible story. These companies need to understand that we have to have a trust in them. This company lost my trust easily.

    Find another web builder. I loath the day I chose them. It really has been that bad. If they were here in the US I would be driving to their office. Stay away! I did my best I gave you fair warning, so if you opt to go with them and have problems lik e I have then it is your own doing. Good luck!

    Websitebuilder.com is amazing! I will not get into the nitty-gritty of why i think this site is amazing but I think the fact that they offer Free Websites to users that are not well up or for users who don’t want to pay. Well, they put some banner on your free website but who cares, you get a free website.

    let me first start by saying that my favorite template is Italiano. I used it for my food blog too. The choosing did not come easy since there were hundreds of equally amazing templates that could match this. I did some little adjustments to make the template fit on my website and i cant even complain. Thanks guys

    WebsiteBuilder.com website is fully responsive. i.e it is mobile-ready from the start. I didn't know they have this feature until i launched my website and tested it on a Blackberry. I was actually mind blown when i noticed that my website was availa ble in mobile too. I had no idea what i did to make it mobile-ready. I got to know about in the FAQ. What’s more, i could rebuild mobile versions of my other websites from the builder. I understand that the Changes you make on the mobile site will not affect the availability of the desktop version of your site.

    I will try and make this review as conclusive as possible using the least number of words. I needed to quickly create a website to host my blog. with little computer skills and a low budget, i approached my friend who is an IT guy but his hands were full and thus recommended this site. I am particularly interested by the simplicity... everything was straight forward. the sing up process involves only filling three fields of data.My site came with a domain and a personal email address with my domain in it. i didn't have to install the complicated email servers that some people use. My blog is compatible with both PC and mobiles phones. i activated this feature just by checking a button. Websitebuilder.com was heaven sent. I will never use another site but this one. Thumbs up guys. And oh i forgot to mention the pricing and the customer care guys. Same day email reply

    I like them a lot, they are a good website builder compare to many that I tried (Jimdo, Weebly etc.) But I'll be honest: they are not as good as Wix. I think they give a good fight, and I like it that they are available in many languages. But still s ome road a head of Websitebuilder.com

    Really beautiful and professional templates but unfortunately no blog, which is a must and you can't add your own html or javascript, like some adsense ads...No community forum and the only way to get help is by sending an email (to which you qui ckly get an answer, which is good)... No reference to the company's info on the website: no address, no phone number, no email...Price is fabulous, with the discount, it's approx. 3$ per month. You only which they would offer the blog and the code addition...
