Best Drag and Drop Website Builders of 2017

The best drag and drop website builders allow business owners to complete a website and go live the same day. Drag-and-drop functionality has revolutionized the way entrepreneurs create their signature websites. What was once thought impossible has now become mainstream.

Website designers, both novice and experienced, can select an object, and while holding the mouse button down, drag it to another location, and then release it to create an exceptional web design in minutes.

Naturally, the variety of drag-and-drop website builder features are numerous which is why reviews can say so much. Shared experiences reveal strong and weak aspects of any feature. Ultimately, the decision resides with the website owner. But with the help of reviewers across the globe, selecting the best drag and drop website builder has never been easier!

My brother and I run a business together. It’s a small but popular shop. Some time ago we decided to go online to sell and advertise our products there, and simply couldn't find a better platform than uKit. One of the things these guys offer is a deep SEO customization with good results. Our website has good rankings on Google and we’ve managed to achieve it owing to uKit. This platform is also easy to use. We didn’t even need any tutorials to launch our website.
The platform is very intuitive and flexible. Customization is of ...

I’ve chosen Webnode website builder. It meets my criteria and provides me with all the functions necessary. Here’s what Webnode is good at.
• External tools. Webnode lets me add other widgets and tools so I don’t depend on what they offer.
• Upload manager. In differ from other platforms there’s a manager to upload large files which saves time.
• Password protection. Certain areas can be shown to individual users only by the means of Webnode password protection.
• Presence of analytics. Their own Analytics tool is nice and convenient. They also make it possible to add Google Analytics ...

Those who say that Jimdo is no match for online shops must’ve never tried this platform themselves. I retail sneakers of all types and it feels like Jimdo is designed specifically for selling purposes. Jimdo’s features are really well thought-out. Consider their online store, for example. Installing it is absolutely hassle-free process. I’ve managed to do it in a few minutes without any tutorials. Now I sell worldwide. I’ve got orders from Italy and Belgium which means that Jimdo is really useful for online shops. The language isn’t a hindrance on my way to clients ...

You can’t say you’ve tried a decent website builder unless you visit Wix.com. I’ve been with this platform for years and I’m over the moon to have found it. Flexible, adaptive, user-friendly. These are the adjectives I can think of when commenting on Wix. I fell in love with this service as soon as I opened their homepage. My barber shop needed a simple but elegant website with little efforts to build up and maintain. I needed basical functions mainly such as posting information and promotional articles with images.What a pleasure it was to ...

I’ve read a ton of positive comments about Webs. Some of my friends have websites by Webs too. So when I decided to launch my own website five years ago I knew which builder to choose. I’ve never had any reasons to think about moving away from Webs. Here’s why.
Webs is incredibly user-friendly. They’ve done a good job in my view because their tool is very intuitive. Their editor makes it possible to drag the whole modules and drop them anywhere onto a page. Any paragraph or a slideshow, it all can be dropped at ...

I had a Facebook business page without a website. One of my friends advised me trying Exai website builder. I thought that I would copy paste my Facebook information and content to Exai platforms. Thanks God things were much easier than I expected.

I found a tool on Exai which made it possible for me to convert my Facebook business page into a website. I just clicked a button and had everything done automatically. I still had to modify a few blocks which wasn’t a headache for me. By the way modifications are all done easily and I didn ...

Siteblog service is so impressive! I’ve never used any platform which has the same amount of features useful for a blog. I was interested in getting my blog up and running without any efforts. So I did it on Siteblog. I’ve found that their variety of templates is extremely wide. They cover so many topics from food to clothes that I can only praise them. There’re opportunities to customize my blog in a number of ways. Changing overall color or replacing each block on the page is always possible. Love them!

One of the best things about Cabanova is that they’re not a pure drag and drop tool. Yes, you can drop elements onto a page, it’s not a problem here but you can also edit HTML code. Cabanova offers simple but nice HTML editor. It looks like a typical Notepad++ and it’s convenient at use. I always have it opened it because I don’t want to use pre-made templates. When I edit Cabanova’s HTML editing the final result is always perfect so I don’t worry about my site behaving in an unexpected way. There ...

I’ve tried Sitebuilder myself and I’m all satisfied with the quality of the service they provide. They ...

My site on Websitebuilder is really helpful to boost my sales. There’re two ways to add a store. I prefer to drag it to an existing page (or you can create a new one if necessary). Adding products and setting payment options up isn’t complicated. It all can be done in a few clicks. Even though things look simple Websitebuilder’s store is highly capable. In differ from its competitors this platform lets me add such attributes as brand and UPC number. My store is also equipped with options like color or size and even more. The only ...

Our company has a website by uCoz. We made it from scratch because uCoz provides such features. As a boss I mostly think about overall policy of our site so I need detailed statistics. uCoz is quite helpful at this aspect. I can get data about incomplete orders and about order submission time. It’s convenient because I can understand what people buy from us and how it depends on discounts which we provide. I’d like their statistics to be a bit deeper so that I could understand the age of our customers and their origins. I’d like ...

I don’t think that rvsitebuilder.com is a good choice for business. I had a site on this platform but I’ve decided to leave it. Here’s why.
• Too many bugs
• Not enough plug-ins
• No business oriented templates
• Restricted customization
• Too basic features
On the whole rvsitebuilder.com is a decent platform for a simple site with two or three pages. If you want to build a proper online shop with a lot of items and deep analytical tools you’ll be disappointed.

It has never occurred to me that getting clients is so amazingly simple (and involving)! With Bigcommerce offers I’ve completely forgotten about boring marketing tricks which have gone out of date frankly… Bigcommerce is the game changer in the world of sales (at least for me)!
One of the features which comes out-of-the-box is a bulk import/export. It’s based on CSVs files which transfer the product information at ease. One of my friends used it, he says that there were no problems with it.
The feature which is the best one (in my view) helps to group ...

As a simple teacher of languages hardly can I write anything balanced on computer software… Well, I’ll try to describe my problems with IM Creator at least.

Singing up was simple enough and I could start working with the objects after a few typical steps. A very good decision of IM Creator is to protect users from annoying hoops to jump through before getting started with the editing routine. I focused on a template and started my way towards virtual happiness. It was that simple! What caused my slight frustration was an undo button. It was nowhere to be ...

Hi dear critics of Basekit! I know you all got something to write about this builder but I have a story as well. My concern about any builder is the load speed. Since I make websites mainly for search engines I know that Google likes the websites which load fast. Basekit is a nice fellow in these terms. Their websites load up fast in differ from Wix whose products take minutes to appear on a screen. It would be strange if a person worried about SEO results didn’t comment something about it. I’d give Basekit A+ for SEO ...

Shopify is a nice all in one tool which helps me selling goods. There’re all the functions to maintain a decent online store but there’re disadvantages as well.
Pros:
• Speed. The platform is integrated with payment providers so my clients can pay with as little load time as possible.
• SEO. Shopify makes it possible to add title tags and meta descriptions which work well.
Cons:
• Customization. Shopify is built using something other than PHP. So customizing their templates can be difficult enough.
• Blogging. Their platform for a blog is too basic with unchangeable layouts.
• Moving away. Shifting from ...

DudaMobile is the tool which I use to make my websites mobile friendly. I have five websites for my creative projects. I’ve got positive impression about this tool mainly.
In my opinion DudaMobile is an exceptional balance between functionality and useful tools. It provides professional and adequate services which are quite rare on today’s market. For this reason I like it.
DudaMobile works slow in the evenings and it tends to be quite annoying. If I use it in the morning things are much better.

I’ve recently conducted a kind of analysis concerning Create.net. In my opinion it’s good for online commerce mostly while it lacks features for musicians, bloggers or designers. In addition, for users looking to get started with an online shop for the first time there may be better platforms to start a journey with than Create. The reason for this is that many of their plans include features unnecessary but expensive for young entrepreneurs.
However Create has a nice content management system which is robust enough to give a businessman some chances against meaningful names in any niche ...

I spent a whole Saturday afternoon working with my new commercial website. I was mainly getting the hang of Startlogic, how it works and so forth. Once I set up my domain name I was greeted with nice functions. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that Startlogic was made for all types of operating systems. This is because Startlogic is based on vDeck 3.0. If you don’t know it’s a type of control panel. It’s a flexible and adaptive one so I really like it. By the way it’s the same control panel offered by ...

When I opened my gallery I thought that it needed a site. Chose Sitelio, started playing around with settings, checking things and somehow completed my site. The fact is that I’m so noobish in technologies but I did it. Well, my galley sells pictures, I’ve added them to the site I’ve made, have added descriptions to them, set the price and I do sell some of them! I used to sell on Bigcommerce platform, to some extent it was more intricate than Sitelio but Bigcommerce looked more complicated to me. Sadly, aside from integration with Ecwid payments ...

I like Web.com! To tell you the truth I’m not a pro at building sites. That’s why I was in search for a decision easy enough for my Shop. I went with this company because they looked like an easy tool for non graphic designers. I’m one of them if you haven’t understood yet. I love the templates they gave for my Shop! There were simple and helpful ideas which were useful. I’d better say if it wasn’t for them my Shop’s site wouldn’t just exist! In as little as 20 ...

Frankly I don’t understand all this fussing around 3D. Yes, it’s a platform for business, it has pretty looking design, it gives plug-ins but nothing more. I used it before, not impressed.
Don’t think that a successful business needs all this fast launch stuff. 3D seriously lacks well-planned and specific tools, there’re too general decisions, they’re not bad for beginning but when planning to expand they’ll show themselves as weak and useless solutions.
Designs are okay, only some of them in fact. The majority of the templates are quite run of the mill looking ...

I've used a Simbla best account for over a year and a half at a church where I'm employed as a communications coordinator. Earlier this month I purchased another account for my personal website and switched my hosting service to Simbla from a different provider. Everything went smoothly.
Simbla has tools which helped me getting my website up and running fast, easy and intuitively. It may sound unrealistic to you but this is true. Simbla gives everything it boasts about when advertised.
For users who are technically literal here’s a set of templates. Finding the right one ...

Been a dedicated customer of WS from winter to autumn 2012. Since those days their platform has helped me on my way to being an entrepreneur at web business. When using WS I didn't see eye to eye on some things which they used to add. Well, it’s because I’m somewhat conservative, anyways, back to the review. During the long period of using this builder I had a very wonderful experience. Building websites was a pleasure and still is to this day. Thing is though, with this company I was kind of annoyed by the spam emails ...
