SiteGround Adds a Free Website Builder

free website builder

As many of you know, we work with various CMS’s – WordPress, Joomla, Magento being some of the top favorites of our customers. No matter how straightforward we think these CMS’s are though, many customers have difficulties working with them. This is why we spent some time looking for the easiest website builder that we could integrate into our platform and offer to our customers as a solution to their hassles. We are happy to say that we found it in Weebly – a powerful yet simple drag & drop website building tool.

Drag & Drop Builder

The easy drag & drop builder allows you to create a professional website with no technical skills required. Content elements (like text, photos, maps, and videos) are added to your website by simply dragging and dropping them into place.

Responsive Themes

You can choose from a wide variety of mobile-ready themes to kick-start your website. From ultra-modern, to bold and classic, the themes fit various design preferences while being automatically mobile-optimized for any screen size from desktops to phones and tablets.

Complete eCommerce Solution

Want to start an online store? You can use the complete eCommerce solution to provide a smooth online shopping experience. There are sophisticated storefront themes, payment options and more.

How to get started?

The free sitebuilder is available to all our customers. Login to your account and enable it from your User Area > My Accounts > Sitebuilder tab for any of your domains.

In addition to the free version, we are also offering Weebly’s upgrade plans (Starter, Pro and Business).

So get started and build your website in minutes!

Thanks for the article Iksra! Do you know if a WordPress Drag n Drop builder is in the works?

Hi Andrew, there are quite a bit of WordPress Drag n Drop enabled plugins and templates that already exist and there is no issue in using them on your installations with us. It's just a question of what you choose to use within WordPress itself. There are quite a bit of options out there. If you are asking whether we are going to build one ourselves, or integrate one into our backend, the answer is most probably - no.

Unfortunally completly useless for Cloud customers that have other than themself on the server, because it require access to the Siteground account, it can't be accessed from an hosting account or cpanel or something. So no use for Cloud customers :( and no websitebuilder for us

Hi Kim, you bring up a good point and we've actually already started discussion on a stand alone log-in for the sitebuilder. Hopefully we can add that functionality in the future. Meanwhile, you will just have to access it from the SiteGround User Area.

For all our hosting accounts the login to the Weebly Sitebuilder Admin happens through our User Area. It is the same for Cloud and Shared. So if your case requires not going through the User Area, access to the Sitebuilder indeed becomes an issue.

Dec 22, 2015

Joomla's advantage is that you can use it to build more complex websites, but it is harder to learn than just drag and drop. On the other hand, the sitebuilder is easy to learn, but can only go so far in terms of functionality and flexibility. It really depends on what you want to build.

I am going to setup a new site just to try the new site builder. This may be a great option for many clients. We use genesis framework. I am a beginner in the building aspect of websites but I desire to learn. How does Joomlia compare to the frame work that I am used to? How would you compare the two? So many people often complain about WP but I have had the help of a designer. This setup and hosting could be a great oppurtuinty for others to get a quality site that is easyliy built and maintained.

Reply

Hristo Pandjarov Siteground Team

Dec 28, 2015

Hey, As far as I understand, you're using the Genesis framework for building WordPress themes. Note, that those are completely different site creation systems with different architecture, styling tools, etc. While Joomla and WordPress are CMS apps, our Weebly sitebuilder is a service that allows you to create pages mostly by drag-and-droping different pre-defined elements. It's definitelly easier to work with but doesn't have all the customization freedom WP and Joomla provide for example. The easiest way would be simply to make a sample page with few sections and see how the process feels. Then, you can determine whether to switch or not :)

I fail to see the advantage to having this within SG vs just purchasing through Weebly directly. Pricing is more expensive with SG (which surely should not be the case as Weebly is probably giving a commission, correct me if I am wrong), and SG lacks the ability to allow clients to sign in directly (not unless they go via SG user area). Both of these issues are the very reasons that we would want to use Weebly in the first place. Seems like this needs to be further developed before it really adds value for SG users.

Hi Iskra, and thanks for this helpful information. Even once these things are fixed, can you help me (a Cloud user) understand the value of using Weebly through SG rather than through Weebly? Even if the costs are the exact same it appears that all it does is eat up my SG server space where as with Weebly hosting it doesn't. Just trying to figure out the real value added compared to going with them directly. Thanks!

Every website takes from your server space and sites built with Weebly are no exception as they are also hosted by SiteGround, even if they are built with Weebly. That said we invest a lot in having a superior, fast and secure infrastructure. We also support multiple other CMSes that you can install on your account alongside Weebly. We offer rich functionalities to manage your hosting account in the cPanel. So these are just some of the points we believe are of value :)

The cheapest Weebly paid service on their own site is actually more expensive than an SG account. Correct me if I'm wrong but it looks as if you can't host a domain on the free accounts, which would mean that you need to pay for any serious usage, and if you want site search you need to pay twice as much as an SG account. Ouch. And, that for a system on which you don't seem to have much control over layout beyond premade templates, the contact form has no robot protection.. and well, I could go on. By the way, Mara CMS is open source and free to use. Just in case anyone thought we were trying to sell something. No, it's open source, and a full version. It might not be quite as easy for a beginner as Weebly, but hey, it's far more versatile.

Hey Ian, in fact you can have your own domain even on the free plan with SiteGround. If you go with Weebly directly however you can't. Regarding the Site Search feature - yes you are right about that. This is included in the Pro plan.

There is a way to move content from a CMS to Weebly or Weebly to a CMS. I haven't tried it but you can check it out here: https://www.cms2cms.com/ Obviously it does not move your template and other design elements. But it does move content and images that belong to a post and some other data. The same company has a cart to cart service which worked very well so this probably does too.

Weebly will indeed be easier for beginners to get started with than the 'big three' cms products, and its addition is a useful development. We maintain a project, Mara CMS, which falls somewhere between this and the 'big box' packages in terms of complexity, features, and ease of use. I just thought I'd mention it here in case it is of interest to Siteground users. Mara is a file-based CMS which uses HTML5 as the native syntax (no markdown!) and offers direct-to-page editing with CKeditor. The online editing features are easy enough for clients to perform their own updates with, whilst the site maintainer is free to create or upload content in just about any preferred way. http://maracms.com - I suggest taking a look around the features first, then going into guest editor mode with the link on the frontpage and giving it a try.

A website that you have designed in Weebly cannot be moved to WordPress. It needs to stay in Weebly. The two platforms are not connected. But don't worry; until you press to publish your site on Weebly, your current site won't be changed. After you publish it however, your WordPress site will be overwritten. So be careful.

Iskra, was the direct access/login to Weebly accomplished? I can't figure out how to give my client access to her site that we built with the Sitebuilder. There's a "Members" tab but it looks like that's just for external users of the website, not for editing purposes.

Unfortunately, logging in to Weebly still requires going through the SiteGround Client Area. I can reassure you that we’ve been actively working on brand new interfaces for our customers and one of the many benefits they will bring is namely the direct Weebly login. We hope to be able to launch them in the next few months.

I started out with Weebly, but your support team suggested Wordpress, intact, installed it for me which i appreciate except now I have a conflict somewhere and I can't solve it. Please help me with this regard as I cannot move forward with using Wordpress.

How do I enable the Weebly website builder on my account? I have gone to my User Area > My Accounts > Sitebuilder tab as suggested, but I can't see any way to enable it.

Hi Dave, We checked in our system and we can confirm that you have already successfully activated the Weebly website builder on your hosting account. As a result you will see a Sitebuilder tab (located to the most right on the tab menu) available in the "My Accounts" section and it is showing the domain name for which there is an active Sitebuilder. To use the tool further simply go to the tab and select the grey button "Access SiteBuilder" Regards, SiteGround Team

Currently you cannot use paypal to accept credit and debit card payments on weebly, but you can on siteground. Can we use paypal for credit and debit cards if using the weebly plugin?

We use different payment processors that Weebly provide so I am afraid you can't use that functionality unless they add it to the product.

Please clarify if we use Weebly free plan, will there be Weebly ads or branding in the footer?

Reply

The footer is not customizable in the free plan. So you have a default footer saying "Site powered by Weebly. Managed by SiteGround". Other than that, there are no Weebly ads or branding in the free plan.

Hi - if I opt for the growbig plan and therefore have multiple websites, can I have weebly on one of them and use php/mysql on another one? Thanks

Yes, you can absolutely do that, Paul. You can enable Weebly only for the desired domain.

Hi, our site was originally built using the Website Wizard which is about to be cut. In the email I got notifying me of that I was told that our site would remain intact but the only way to edit it would be "to manually edit the files. This will require either PHP, html and css knowledge or hiring a website developer." Then the email said that Weebly was an alternative. Does that mean that I would be able to edit my site via Weebly once I enable it? Or would I have to rebuild the site through Weebly to be able to use it?

Weebly is indeed an alternative website builder tool that we offer and that you could use. However, it cannot be used in order to update the website you had already built with the Website Wizard. Should you choose to use Weebly, you will have to rebuild your website from scratch.

Hey Mike, I am not sure which tutorial you are referring to. You can find information about how to create an addon domain here: https://www.siteground.com/tutorials/cpanel/addon-domains/. Once you have the addon domain, if you want to activate Weebly on it, you can head to User Area > My Accounts > Manage Account > tab Sitebuilder and select your new addon domain. You can find a short article on Weebly activation here: https://www.siteground.com/kb/weebly-sitebuilder/ If you continue to face issues, please get in touch with our Support team and they will be quick to help you.

Hi Jennifer, as long as you have just enabled Weebly but not published the site there, you can use your domain for WordPress, or another CMS. If you wish to not have Weebly enabled at all, you can request via support ticket to have it deleted.

Yes, you could do that! You can have WordPress on your primary domain and Weebly on a subdomain.

Hello, I already designed my website by a web developer and then I uploaded it to Siteground. So, can I "EDIT" my website by myself by using any Non-coding website builder presented here by Siteground? Thank you

No, you need to use the application your developer used to build your website - WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or if it's static one - text editor. Please, reach out to your dev for further information.
