DIY website builders are useful tools for people without any programming knowledge (like PHP and jQuery) and companies with a limited budget that want to be present on mobile phones. Currently, there are many hosting providers that also include a website builder, which also offers creating mobile websites. This complements the service and allows users to have everything they need to publish their website, from buying domains names to choosing design templates. The main advantages of these builders are straightforwardness and speed with which you can create a website with a wide range of designs and seamless code management. In addition, the most advantageous thing is that most of them are cloud-based tools so you do not have to download and download any software and there usually is a free version.

When choosing a website builder there are many factors that can influence your decision. First, they should be based on a cloud-computing, as we have mentioned. This will allow us to edit our projects anytime and anyplace have the software available with the latest update. It is also recommended to make a preliminary analysis of our needs and requirements to choose the most appropriate builder: the type of URLs the builder creates, the number of pages that we can create in every website, the amount of available storage, the bandwidth allowed, the type of available galleries , e-commerce integration, payment methods, integrated security methods, RSS, etc.

Below, we show some examples of the best mobile website builders. All of them have several advantages and some weaknesses, but it depends on the point of view from which you analyze them and what are your needs and expectations.

    Hi Mary,

    Thanks for the mention. We enable mobile design by exposing an easy CSS capability. This means designers can go as far as they wish to create a really special design! We want to offer “Custom” mobile for a low price. However we recognize many in the industry provide templates – which in our way of thinking, does help non-technical users – but really ties the hands of the designer! We will be launching Templates very soon!! Thanks.

    Any offline software you may be aware of that can generate a mobile site from an existing one?
    Thank you

      Hi Julien, I think online apps are better for that kind of task as they are constantly updates and you can always get the last version without having to download anything.

      • Joe 19/09/2012 at 19:53:18 Responder

        Most of the times Website owners don’t get time to do changes every day. They update their Websites 2 or 3 times per year. I’ve been a Webmaster for 10 years, so I know what I’m talking about…no offence. So I’m not agreeing with the idea that your mobile Website builder software should be cloud based.

        I’m been using Management-Ware Webelement for 3 months. I can create a mobile Website on less than 2 hours without writing a single html code. I paid the license 1 time and there is no monthly. I save time and money.

        • Irene N. 19/09/2012 at 23:32:35 Responder

          Hi Joe. No offence taken :)

          With a cloud based system, you’ve got the advantage of not having to download anything. And the hosting is provided by us too, which is something you’d still have to pay even if you just paid one time for your desktop solution. I guess is a matter of what you are looking for.

          Let’s say you are building a website for a specific event, like a party. Wouldn’t it be better in that case to build a cloud based website and pay for the minimum amount of time, than buying the whole desktop solution and never use it again? Everything depends on the objective of each site. It’s great to have choices!

    Nice review. By the way it would be nice to get some more detailed review of mobile site builders oriented to individuals, not businesses. Usually such builders are free for users (supported by ads) and has much more features in comparison with professional ones. But their external design is not so nice, etc. For example Wapka, or Xtgem. Or finaly – one of the best free mobile site builders with tons of social features like chat, forum, dating etc.

  20. Thelma Harris 23/04/2013 at 23:44:18 Responder

    These are certainly very good mobile website builders.

    Hi MAry

    Great article, thank. I use Artisteer to design website but I’m looking for software for mobile sites. I don’t like the monthly plans as I want to create a site and charge clients once off and install it as a sub-domain for the clients. Any advice? I had a look at web element, choco templates, and more but I’m looking for something easy like artisteer. Thanks

    • Helena 11/06/2013 at 02:59:47 Responder

      Hi Aloysius,
      We have very easy to use templates that you can customize, and I think our yearly plans may be just what you’re looking for. You may also be interested on becoming a reseller, so I’ll have our team send you more information about it.

    IMO the best deal is and pay the site for life for $159. No monthly fees or hidden fees and the editor which is drag and drop is a pleasure use. It’s WYSIWYG. Very user friendly. And no I don’t work for them or have any affiliation.

    I tried the free version but you get this big dudamobile ad at the top and bottom so I wanted my site professionally done and decided it was worth paying the site-for-life fee.

    I’ll break even in about two years compared to paying about $7-10 on the monthly fee rates and of course be ahead for years to come.

    I even think I can change the URL in case I decided to dump my current website and change to a new one.
