To compare the best website builders on ease of use, templates, customer service, and value for money, we tried to build the same site on each platform. Check out the results here.
Brilliant customer support combined with clever DIY website-building software is what makes this British company stand out from the crowd. Their business model is built on serving UK businesses and helping them achieve great things through the Internet. To that end, they design websites based on the needs of their end-users, rather than churning out cookie-cutter sites that may not align with user objectives.
DotGo offers two options: either you create the website yourself with their simple but powerful website builder, or they build it for you and teach you how to maintain it later on. Their results have been nothing short of exceptional, and it shows through their client testimonials: many of their customers are now happy evangelists of the service. In fact, they’re so confident of their service that they even offer a money-back guarantee if customers aren’t satisfied with the websites.
As with most website builders, the DotGO builder allows you to first select a template from the range available, then add in your own content, connect widgets, and style your website with the WYSIWYG editor. Configurable SEO elements and a custom top-level domain help propel your website to the first page of Google, and custom e-mail addresses and testimonial plugins add credibility to your business. You can even add parallax images or build a FAQ on your site. The DotGO builder may be simple to use, but it definitely isn’t lacking in features.
DotGO offers three website building packages as well as an inexpensive web design service. Their most popular package is their Silver plan, which is ideal for small to mid-sized businesses and comes with all the features available.
