Oceans of time, energy, and effort can be expended designing and building a website by hand. And after all of that, it still may not look good. For beginners especially, building a website can be a tricky task. Not only does it require functional design knowledge (if you want it to look acceptable), but it also may require knowledge of HTML and other semi-esoteric topics. Programs like Dreamweaver and FrontPage assist somewhat in the design and implementation process, however, these programs are more like canvases with great tools, rather than a "paint by numbers." For beginners, and even professionals looking to save time, website building programs are a beneficial element in designing a top-notch site.

Website builders basically hold your hand through the design process. Rather than having to start with a blank slate, users can choose from multiple templates and easily customize the look and feel of their site with various options. The process is usually simplified to the point that a site wizard will literally walk you through the process step by step. The only thing you have to worry about is which options to choose.

In order to create something like a drop down menu, for example, a beginner may have to do some pretty extensive research in order to find the proper code, and then from there figure out how to customize it. With a website builder, drop down menus are literally as easy as a click + enter.

Not only is the creation of your site simplified, but changes and other maintenance are equally as swift. The editing process with most good website builders, such as Xsite Pro, is as simple as a basic word processor. Regularly updating content is a crucial element with any successful website, and site builders make that process quicker, easier, and more effective.

Before investing in a site builder (which can be rather expensive), try a product with a free trial. Free trials and demo versions will allow you to choose a program that you are comfortable with and that will suit your needs. Check out the types of templates the program offers, the program's layout and navigation, and of course be familiar with the company's tech support policies.

When it comes down to it, a good website builder can take a total novice with no technical skills whatsoever and make them into the equivalent of design pro. Having a website that looks consistent and consummately professional is more important now than ever. As I said, not only beginners take advantage of website builders. Webmasters who have developed countless sites, as well as corporations and small businesses, all utilize site builders to save time and create webpages that truly look first rate. Site builders certainly are cheaper than hiring a professional web designer. For you, that professional-grade webpage can just be a few clicks away.
