The Case For Webnode
With more than 30 million websites created, Webnode is one of the larger players among other website building platforms like Weebly, Wix and Squarespace. The target audience is the same – service is created to help people launching simple personal/business websites and online stores. No matter if you’re web novice or experienced user, with help of Webnode it’s easy to launch a website and edit it on any step using drag-and-drop editor. Webnode review from WebsiteToolTester Team can prove it without needless words:
Another key feature of Webnode is the support of over 20 language versions. That can be useful for website owners who intend to reach a foreign audience.
However, Webnode has not only like common drag-and-drop system drawbacks but own particular limitations. This website builder lacks some of the must-have widgets like website search filter, social media buttons, likes, shares, etc. Webnode also has an option for creating blogs. Still, you won’t get the full potential from it as building features are confined and fit more for simple blogs.
In contrast, WordPress offers unlimited possibilities for any type of website. Since this platform is free and open-source, you can easily learn the core functionalities of the system. WordPress is considered as the user-friendly website operation tool with extended feature abilities and versatile design solutions.
