Benefits of a Website Builder:

  1. Website builders are easy to use.
  2. Get online fast.
  3. Everything you need is included.

What makes HostGator’s new website builder unique from other competitors on the market?

  1. Drag-and-drop is a bad word here. Simply answer a few questions and the intelligent software builds the site for you.
  2. Create a blog. (Other competitors make you choose a website or a blog. Gator Website Builder allows you to do both in the same dashboard.)
  3. eCommerce package with shopping cart, payment processing, and inventory management.
  4. Email marketing and appointment booking built in!
  5. Website analytics built in to the dashboard.

To see it in action, watch our video demo of the new Gator Website Builder.

Benefits of WordPress:

  1. Flexibility = lots of plugins and apps to make your website robust. Some assembly required.

  3. Multiple user accounts = one of the biggest benefits over a website builder.
