    Glad I came across this. I started getting suspicious of the site when I sent support tickets inquiring about a short free-subscription trial to test some features, but nobody replied.

    I then started sending multiple support requests in for various things and I have not once got a response. As it appears, nobody monitors websitebuilder, handles support or has any staff which works there. Which is disappointing because I got a layout I really liked for my side business.

    Do you have any recommendations for other sites which offer multi-page webbuilders? I tried Wix for example, but is it way to simple and only appears to offer a single webpage.

      Hi Tyler – thanks for your input! Actually, Wix’s websites are in fact multi-page, as are those of SquareSpace, Weebly, Jimdo, and DudaOne (all of which I’ve reviewed!). I’d start there if you’re looking for a legit multi-page website builder 🙂

        Very interesting. Is this WebSIte Builder the same one that is offered by GoDaddy. It has the same name. I have used it for several years without much difficulty, though it has some glitches. I have always had good telephone support for my questions. However, GoDaddy is changing to a new site builder and I most convert in the next month. Do you know if their new product is the one you have written about?

        Thanks for your report and any answer you can give me.

          Hi Leonard! Actually, no, WebsiteBuilder.com is not connected to GoDaddy’s Website Builder – they are entirely different entities.

            Thanks for the heads up! I purchased a domain name from Go Daddy. While I was reading this, I got an email offering me a free trial of web builder!!!

              Jason Vissers

              Hi Julia! If GoDaddy sent you this email, it must relate to their product, which they refer to as Website Builder. This isn’t the same product as WebsiteBuilder.com, though. Confusing, I know! 🙂
