Before you settle on a web hosting service, you should take the time to review the features that are most pertinent to your needs. One particular tool that you are likely to use is the website builder. Depending on the site building tool, you either get your webpage up and running quickly or you can face a drain on your time and numerous calls to customer support.
If you are currently considering iPage and eHost as potential web hosting services for your site, then a comparative review of their site building tool may help you make your decision.
iPage’s Weebly Site Builder
Weebly is one of the most popular website building tools on the web, which is why iPage and other web hosting services offer it to their customers. While Weebly should be an incentive for you to purchase iPage, the web hosting service actually offers an outdated and free version of the site builder.
Supposedly, iPage partnered with Weebly a few years back by purchasing the license. While the license agreement gives iPage’s customers access to Weebly, the tool is an old version because iPage hasn’t invested in any upgrades. The lack of an upgrade is an issue for most users, especially since other web hosting services provide the upgraded version.
eHost’s Weebly Site Builder
While eHost doesn’t offer Weebly, it does provide a quality web site building tool that includes more capabilities than iPage’s version of Weebly.
The first notable feature of eHost’s site builder is that it is extremely easy to use since it is a “drag-and-drop” web building tool. The website builder can also be used with the cPanel, making for a seamless experience.
In addition the benefit of ease of use, the website building tool also comes with thousands of updated templates and eCommerce functionality. This means that you create your website and get it running with shop capabilities in no time.
Another quality worth mentioning about the website builder is that it has superb mobile responsiveness. Users can ensure that their website is optimized for mobile devices, thereby driving web traffic from all sources of technology.
Finally, with this particular website builder, you do not need to have any coding experience. The website builder is accessible to all users, making eHost’s website builder a prime option for both beginners and advanced users alike.
The Final Comparison
Overall, while Weebly is a “brand name” website builder, it isn’t worth much to users if it doesn’t include the latest features and technology. As a result, between both iPage and eHost, eHost’s website builder is a better option. At least with eHost, you get to use an easy tool that includes thousands of templates and mobile optimization capabilities.
