[Codango: We could not agree more. In fact, we’re not big fans of web-based “Do It Yourself” web sites. For a hundred reasons… the below are just a few. We strongly recommend WordPress or Drupal, your own custom domain, and your own hosting environment. It is simple to set up – AND, if you find that not true, there are millions of people and resources out there to help you. Don’t fall into this trap!]
Google’s site builder is great for getting a simple site online in a hurry, but poor if you need to do anything even faintly advanced.
- No-strings-attached freebie
- Very user-friendly
- Integrates with many Google services
- No templates
- Very few widgets
- Can’t publish to a custom domain
