Our mission

There are nearly 2 billion websites hosted online, but only around 10% of them are active. Our mission is to help you not only create a website, but to make a success of it. Whether it’s an online portfolio, an ecommerce shop, or a new blog, we’re here to give you an online ‘leg-up’.

Website Builder Chart began as a passion project way back in 2009. We wanted to share our experience of building websites to help everyday people like you get online.

10 years on, our team has grown – but our mission is very much the same. By carrying out extensive research and user testing with our qualified researchers, we’re able to cut through the noise to bring you honest and factual information – from top tips and complete guides, to first-hand reviews and in-depth comparisons.

In 2018 over 4.5 million people came to our site in search of help, advice and recommendations. We want to grow that number, and help millions more.

Getting started

‘But I just don’t know where to start’ is something we hear time and time again from our readers.

And hey, we get it – we’ve been there ourselves. When it comes to getting online, there are so many routes to take, and so many different platforms shouting for your attention, that it’s hard to settle on the best option and just get started.

Think of Website Builder Chart as a one-stop shop for making your online dreams a reality. Whether you prefer an in-depth review of a specific product, or an at-a-glance comparison chart of several, you’ll find everything you need to go from idea to live, and beyond.

If you’re fairly new to this kind of thing, we recommend starting out with a website builder. If you’ve got a bit more experience and fancy taking on a larger project, you could try using a CMS system. If you’re planning to set up an online store, you’ll need an ecommerce platform. Either way, select your end goal at the top of this page, and we’ll point you in the right direction.

There has never been a better – or a more popular – time to get online. In fact, in the time it’s taken for you to read this section, around 276 people have launched their websites.

Frequently asked questions

WBE is funded by referral traffic. For example, if you read a review, then sign up to a plan, we sometimes receive a small commission. Most website builders and ecommerce platforms offer free trials or money-back periods, which means that unless you’re happy, we don’t get a cent. Check out our Disclosure for more info.

No, you will never pay more for a product by going through our site. In fact, it’s often the opposite, as we can sometimes negotiate special discounts for our readers. Any commission we receive comes directly from the company itself – it never costs you a cent extra, and means we can make enough money to support our work. We reckon that’s a win-win situation.

Well, for starters – we’ve been doing this for a pretty long time! Website Builder Chart has been live for nearly 10 years now, and to date we’ve put over 50 website builders through our extensive research process, as well as plenty of ecommerce platforms and hosting services.
