Ranked 52nd from 211 Website Builders

Overview

Webydo Delivers Innovative Website Building Solutions.

Webydo positions itself as a different type of website builder. Rather than cater to small businesses and professionals looking for a DIY website, Webydo is made specifically for the experienced web designer.

Founded in 2012, Webydo is serious about providing a responsive, no-code required platform to build a website. Its powerful, designer-oriented features have seen this builder likened to Adobe Photoshop.

At their disposal, experienced programmers have a host of third-party plugins with which they can build complex and professional websites that support functions such as eCommerce.

A visual intuitive drag and drop interface facilitates the designing and site editing process. Other impressive specs include parallax scrolling tools, integrated eCommerce, web fonts, blog, and modern responsive templates.

The number of templates is limited but there are plenty of customization opportunities to create your dream website. Users will benefit from the HTML-based design management system and the content management system.

While Webydo’s editor is a WYSIWYG tool, new users and those who lack experience with InDesign and Adobe Photoshop will find that Webydo has a particularly steep learning curve.

Unfair financial practices

Webydo is fine...although I like Wix better, as a website builder.My advice about Webydo though, is to BEWARE of their automatic annual charges. If you forget to turn off the annual auto charge, they will not refund any prorated share of your mon

Nice try. Software is marginal and the business practices are shady.Had not used the product in over a year because of the many issues and hic-ups. Called to cancel because the dashboard does not allow you to set up your financial payment. Commun

Create Perfect Websites Based on Beautiful Themes.

Templates: You will not find too many templates but the ones on offer are  certainly good-looking.  Admittedly, web designers will likely change the look and feel of these preformatted templates, but the beautiful designs do offer a good place to start building a stunning, customized website.

Mobile styling:  Webydo’s templates are not conventionally responsive and there isn’t an app available for mobile editing. However, you can easily custom design your website by creating breakpoints for the site to adapt to different devices. This way, some elements will be viewed only on desktop but not on tablet or mobile for improved user experience.

Customization: While you can design a professional website from the available themes without needing to code, Webydo offers much in the way of customization. From web fonts to HTML and CSS access you are really given the opportunity to design and personalize your websites. Admittedly, the widgets and add-ons available here are significantly limited but the ones available mostly get the job done.

Features

Webydo review

Scalable, Versatile Features for Your Growing Business.

eCommerce: Webydo lacks a built-in eCommerce solution but integration with an Ecwid account lets you set up a web store from where you can sell physical and digital products. The product listing on a Webydo online store is stunning, and there’s a lot you can do here including changing shipping costs, enabling larger digital downloads, and eliminating product listing limits. Coders can build eCommerce functionality. PayPal integration is required for payment processing.

Blog:  Webydo’s blogging tool is not as sophisticated as one would expect compared to what other popular site builders offer. Nonetheless, the microblogging tool lets you create posts, add rich media such as images and video, and publish.

SEO:  Webydo offers powerful SEO tools that will make any website more visible at the search engine. You can specify meta tags, connect to Google Search Console, integrate with Google Analytics, and set 301 redirects.

Other neat features available include social media integration, live video streaming, a powerful photo editor, parallax scrolling animator, and photo galleries.

Ease of Use

4.4/5

Bring Any Web Design to Life Using Intuitive Tools.

Webydo, like other modern site builders, comes with an intuitive drag and drop interface that provides for a relatively easy website building experience.  While you do not need code to design beautiful websites with Webydo, working with the site editor requires solid experience with InDesign and Photoshop. All in all, Webydo will not be easy to use for the average Joe.

Everything You Need In One Place.

Even though there is a hefty learning curve, all the tools you need to build a professional customized website are neatly organized and easily accessible from Webydo’s Design Studio and Dashboard. From here you can preview your site from the end-user’s perspective, easily drag and drop elements, and customize every element on your site.  Once again, designing with Webydo can fast become complex if you lack basic web design knowledge, but the professional web designer will appreciate the freedom to create a truly customized website that goes beyond what you would get with a conventional site builder.

Support

4.6/5

Help is Only a Call Away!

Webydo is clearly committed to providing all the support it can to its customers. Want to learn more about the available features? Check out the comprehensive knowledge base and video tutorials.

There is a vibrant support forum here where you can ask questions and start discussions with fellow designers. If you have suggestions for features that should be added to the Webydo software, the Suggest feature lets you do just that.

The support team can be reached via email or by phone. The only reason why I didn’t give a 9.2 rating for support is the lack of live chat, which should be available for a site builder of this calibre.

Pricing

4.4/5

Versatile Prices for Personal and Business Website Needs.

Webydo does not come cheap. You can try out the free builder for a month, but you will need to input your credit card or PayPal details for automatic billing at the end of the trial period.

There are four plans available: the Pro, Team, Agency, and Enterprise plans. The Pro plan gets you started with your web design business by giving you access to one designer account, CMS, and free hosting for 10 sites, email support, and client billing.

The Team plan offers a branded solution to upgrade your business. Here, you get 3 designer accounts, CMS, and free hosting for 30 sites, client billing, white label CMS and branding, the ability to add code to site, and help with full set up.

The Agency plan gives you access to advanced business features including 10 designer accounts, free hosting and CMS for 100 sites, client billing, white label CMS, a dedicated account manager, template generator, 100 site exports, and capacity to add code to site.

Upgrading to the Enterprise plans, which is tailor-made for larger companies, gets you custom accounts, full white label CMS, site code, template generator, free hosting and CMS, customer billing, custom support, and custom site exports.

The prices obviously go far beyond what you’ll see being offered by standard site builders, but Webydo’s advanced features make this builder a worthwhile investment.

Savvy web designers will appreciate the advanced features and the design freedom Webydo offers. The prices are significantly high and the learning curve steep, but what you get out of this site builder is well worth it. The eCommerce function is not advanced as one would think even though you are expected to pay more for this feature than you would with other site builders.

If you are looking for an advanced, powerful platform that will let you design professional websites, Webydo might be just right. The cutting-edge tools, combined with an easy to use drag and drop interface, are attractive incentives for any web designer looking for a challenge.
