Footnotes:

[1] Ease of Use  – This is scored on results taken from our research. We asked people, just like you, to create a site using different website builders, then tell us how easy (or hard) they found it. This rating gives you an idea which website builder is the easiest to use. Read our reviews for more details on each one!

 

[2] Website Features – Refers to the number and quality of features offered by each website builder. Some website builders have app stores that allow you to integrate third party tools and features. How easy these are to integrate with your website has also been tested. Higher scores have been awarded to website builders that are more flexible and have more inbuilt features.

 

[3] Design Flexibility  This score incorporates everything a photography website builder allows you to do that is design focused.  How many themes (or templates) it offers you, what its themes look like and how easy they are for you (and others) to navigate, how much you’re able to customize and edit them, and whether it offers a mobile editor.

 

[4] Value for Money – This is taken as a ‘value for money’ score. We looked at the average price of the website builders’ plans from the highest to the lowest they offered. It also includes whether the builder has a free plan or trial and how many features are given to you in each pricing plan.   Please read our detailed review for each website builder for further details.  

We also have more discussions about the cost of building a website here.

[5] Help and Support –  This area is broken down into the help you receive and the support provided. For help, we looked at the types of customer service on offer. Can you get assistance via email, phone, live chat, social media or forums?

For support, we analysed each builder’s security. How well does it keep your site safe? Does it include an SSL certificate, automatic backups and a restore option?

 

[6] Customer Score – As part of our research, we conduct user testing where we get everyday people, like you, to use each website builder and give us some feedback about what they think of it and whether they’d recommend it to others. This data is then combined with a website builder’s value for money to give an overall customer score.
