Homestead website builder


Verified Reviewer

Decade long user

I have been using Homestead Website Builder for over a decade, back when it was Intuit. I used to build websites from scratch, and over a decade ago I saw an ad for the software and tried it. It has made web-building a breeze, and I don't have to fix bugs or other issues for myself. It used to lack in some capabilities other web builders provided, especially before mobile browsing was popular, but with its newest website builder update, it couldn't be easier to create and maintain a website.

Homestead Easy to Learn

As a newbie in creating a website Homestead was easy to use and learn. As I got more proficient I realized the limitations. Maybe that has changed now.

Modern templates with great flexibility

Website Builder is a vast improvement over Sitebuilder, the previous builder by homestead. I built our new site in about 7 hours, but I also was able to mine most of my content from our previous site, so that saved time.

Better Before

I wish they only had the desktop version but it is iffy at times. I loathe using the online builder which is more stable.

Pros

Its ease of use. It's user friendly and you don't need html experience in order to build a great, mobile-friendly site.

Cons

Th price increases annually. For a while there was an increase even though there were no additional capabilities making it worth the increase. There are cheaper options available, but I'm so established with the software I'm not interested in trying anything new. They just need to stay current.

Website Builder is a vast improvement over Sitebuilder, the previous builder by homestead. I built our new site in about 7 hours, but I also was able to mine most of my content from our previous site, so that saved time.

Pros

All the templates allow you to completely customize every element. You aren't bound by colors or have certain elements that must stay. Another great feature is that while you are building your website, it automatically builds a similar mobile site, and you can then modify the mobile site without it affecting the main site.

Cons

It can be a bit difficult to get the site to do what you want it to do until you you understand what all the logo buttons do. It will take some trial and error turning things on and off to figure out what exactly your choices will make to the site. Thankfully you can do this in preview, but it still absorbs a lot of time.

I wish they only had the desktop version but it is iffy at times. I loathe using the online builder which is more stable.

Pros

I loved that I had the website builder on my desktop and could use it offline instead of an online builder.

Cons

They switched to an online builder and while I still use my desktop one, you cannot switch back and forth and you lose out on what the online builder offers.
