So you want to create a website or blog but
would rather avoid WordPress? While WordPress is very powerful and scalable,
it’s also pretty complicated for beginners. Fear not, there are plenty of good alternatives
available in the market. I will show you the three best non-WordPress
options that are, most importantly also easy to use!
Welcome to WebsiteToolTester, where we review alternatives to WordPress all day long so
you don’t have to! Wix is currently the most popular website
builder worldwide. And there are lots of reasons for it. Wix offers more than 300 professionally
designed templates that you can fully customize to your gusto.
The Wix editor is extremely flexible and lets you fine-tune your entire design. As in every
single detail! Wix’s App Market is a little bit like WordPress’s
plugins. With it you can easily add extra functionality like an ecommerce store or a
fully featured event planning tool. The only thing I wouldn’t recommend using
Wix for, are really big websites that hold more than 30 individual pages. Managing them
with Wix can become tedious. The next WordPress alternative is Webnode.
I picked them because they offer multilingual websites. While you need external plugins
with WordPress, here you only need to sign up for Webnode’s Standard plan to set up
a bilingual website. It’s very easy to manage just like the rest of this website builder.
The blogging tool is much more limited than WordPress’s but if that doesn’t bother
you Webnode could be a good solution for you. While both Wix and Webnode also have ecommerce
features built-in, what they offer isn’t really comparable to Shopify. There you get
a range of features, very similar to the WooCommerce plugin for WordPress – but much easier to
set up and manage. Shopify offers a decent range of free templates
and, most importantly, is a solution that grows with you. It’s easy to add and edit
products as you can see here. Like Wix and WordPress, Shopify also offers
an App Store that enables you to add extra functionality like an integration with your
favorite email marketing service for example. Shopify isn’t the cheapest ecommerce solution,
starting at $29 per month plus additional transaction fees unless you use Shopify Payments.
But it’s definitely a very solid WooCommerce alternative.
I hope this was helpful to you! On WebsiteToolTester we discuss even more WordPress alternatives
