Webnode Builder Review

Webnode image

Webnode website builder is another of the top favorite online CMS’s currently on the market with millions of users (7.5m at the time of this writing) building personal websites, business websites, ecommerce sites and everything in between. Started in 2006, Webnode has made itself one of the best names in the website builder industry mainly due to its easy to use and attractive interface, available in many languages plus its flexibility and coverage in functions required to build a really dynamic and professional website without having to know any programming knowledge at all.

Some of features of Webnode that I really like is that as you build your site, a mobile friendly site is automatically being created for you too so that people can access your site on say their iphone. A mobile site is generally a simplified version of your main website to run properly on handheld devices that has less processing power than a PC or laptop. Webnode also provides usage statistics of your site. Functions much like Google Analytics.

Webnode is completely free to use so you can sign up for an account today and have your website running in the next hour. No annoying advertisements will be added to your site even in the free version. The free version does however have limitations but it’s a great starting point for beginners and can run for an unlimited time. As your business grows, you can then start to think about upgrading your account to boost up your site’s technical specifications such as increasing your bandwidth so that more users can use your site (the free plan has limited bandwidth), increased storage, you can opt to use your own domain name, email addresses plus premium support. There are 3 types of plans that you can choose from with their own pricing plans as follows:

Webnode Personal Pricing Plan

  • Perfect for personal sites, blogs, forums and picture galleries.
  • From free to US$24.95 per month

Webnode Business Pricing Plan

  • Best choice for company websites
  • Mainly more design templates than on the Personal Plan
  • US$4.95 per month

Webnode Ecommerce websites

  • For online stores
  • From free to US$49.95 per month

Conclusion

To summarize, I think Webnode is a great website builder product for beginners as well as seasoned web people. They have loads of built-in functions ready for you to drag and drop to start using with minimal setup, no installation, simplistic interface layout and relatively cheap to run. Also the fact that they support over 13 languages, everyone from any country should be able to use them quite easily. I would choose to use Webnode if I didn’t already know web programming so fire away and start using them.
