Homestead website builder

Reviewed on 2018/11/16

Pros

It was quite easy to navigate and use this to build our website for our business.

Cons

It can be a bit confusing unless you know all the technology lingual and how to apply the correct address to having people land directly on your website.

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.

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.

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.

Pros

It was easy to use and the learning curve was not long.

Cons

There were glitches in the software that Homestead didn't want to fix. Had to find ways to work around.

I had never designed a website before using Homestead, and while I'm sure it can be a great tool to use if you are more experienced and have a solid image in your mind of what your website should look like, I found that it confused me more than it helped me.

Pros

Homestead has plenty of options to choose from as far as layout and design of a website. It can help you get a website up and running pretty quickly if you have a decent understanding of web design.

Cons

Ironically, the thing that I like most about Homestead is one of the things I like least about it. There are many options for layout and design with the many template and font choices. However, in my opinion there are too many choices which made me question "is this font better than this one?" and so forth. I found myself running around in circles more than getting anything done.

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.
