Top 5 best alternatives to Wix, Squarespace and Weebly in 2019

If you are planning for a website for a business on a long term, it’s always the best to get custom coded to your preference and to brand your website along with your company’s design language and principles.

If a custom coded website is out of your budget, the least that is needed is to build your business website on WordPress.

However, not everyone needs a fully fledged business website. All they would want is a basic website to get themselves on to the Internet. And here come the website builders to serve this purpose.



Gone are the days where to create even a basic website, you need to know HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

It’s easier now with CMS platforms like WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla. However, completely drag & drop website builders like Wix and Squarespace took the ease of building a website to a whole new level.

Most of the website builders provided their own high-quality hosting and ability to buy domains.

It eliminates the hassle of dealing with hosting companies for issues of downtimes thereby making it a more seamless experience for the users.

It’s not an overstatement that you can build a personal or business website in less than half an hour.

While Wix, Squarespace, and Weebly are some of the well known and predominant players in the website builders space, there are many lesser-known but equally good and sometimes cheaper options.  

Let’s look at a few of those in this article.

Pricing of strikingly


STRIKINGLY is a website builder specially designed for one-page websites and it really excels in that. However, many multi-page templates are also available.

One distinct advantage of strikingly is 2 limited websites can be connected in limited plan and 3 pro websites can be connected in the pro plan.

Custom domains can be connected in both limited and pro websites. Pro sites have additional features like using third-party applications and use of custom codes, but for most basic websites, limited sites should do what is required.

If you like to build an e-commerce site, it’s best to go with the pro plan, as limited sites can accommodate only 5 products per site, but 300 products per site can be added in pro sites.

A fee of $20 a month for 3 pro websites is really a great deal. Therefore, if you have plans for more than one website, strikingly is a great option.

Also, the customer support is really prompt and helpful to clear out the doubts and provide with helpful information. They are happiness officers!!. Little things add a bit of charm.
