Website builders are around us for decades but until now they weren’t able to deliver anything else but a simple website with a poor design. The main advantage was that anyone could create a website without spending a large sum of money and also without working for too many days. The principle behind this concept (which by the way it’s called “what you see is what you get” aka WYSIWYG) is pretty brilliant because it helps the user create something extremely easy by drag and drop components without writing any line of code. This is a great idea  because coding a website is not an easy thing to do.
