Weblium is Easy to Use, but Can It Compete With the Big Names?
I found the Weblium builder easy to use. There’s an intuitive admin panel where you can customize your site and select your color palette and design style. And the smart design supervisor automatically updates your website and publishes changes as you make them. If you want to add a content block, there’s a block library with over 200 options available, including photo galleries, FAQ sections, and more.
Weblium is regularly launching new features and improving existing ones. So keep an eye out for the New and Coming Soon labels on the dashboard.
Weblium can also build a website for you if you’re looking to save time. The company has an in-house design studio available in both English and Russian. While I didn’t test this service, the website claims they can get you a design concept to review in under three days.
If you like the idea of building your own website, Weblium isn’t a bad solution. However, there are some other site builders I’ve tried that are much stronger in my opinion. Before you make any final decision, be sure to check out our list of the top website builders.
Features and Ease of Use
Weblium has plenty of features to help you get your website up and running quickly. Some of the most commonly used tools include:
Templates. Weblium has over 200 templates sorted into 25 categories. While this may seem like a lot, the templates are monotonous and lacking in variety. Scrolling through the catalog was a bit…Groundhog Day.
Tip menu. One feature I really liked was the tip menu that pops up on the right-hand side of the screen while you build. Mentioning how long each task will take is a clever way of guiding the building process.
Free SSL certificate. All Weblium’s plans include a free SSL certificate ensuring that all the data on the site is secure. Your site visitors can safely complete credit card transactions with no added cost to you.
Mobile-responsive. All templates adapt to devices of all sizes. While you build your site, you can preview and edit how each page will look on smartphones and tablets.
Pricing and Support
Weblium offers three different plans: Free, Monthly, and Lifetime.
The Free plan will give you most of the functionalities you need to build and publish your site and comes with unlimited storage (which is almost entirely unheard of for most free website builder plans). You will need to upgrade to the Monthly or Lifetime plan if you want multiple users, a custom domain, or to connect to Google Analytics.
In terms of support, Weblium offers multiple support options: phone and email support, 24/7 live chat, and a knowledge base (available in English, Russian, and Portuguese) that covers a wide variety of topics. The customer support email service was impressive, with a representative responding to my query in under an hour:
