Web development is very different from creating a website using a website builder, and in this blog, I will describe exactly what this difference is along with the advantages and disadvantages of each process.
Let me start with website builders, which are web applications intended for small businesses to allow them to create the look and feel of a website. Website builders allow you to build a website based on the functionalities you want; you can decide on the layout and structure, apply different colors and fonts, select plug and play options, and choose from a selection of standard functionalities.
However, the main disadvantage with website builders is that you are limited by the templates, options and functionalities provided by the app.
On the other hand, web development is a more advanced way of building a website because you have the freedom to create your own functionalities and designs as well as to incorporate powerful SEO techniques. It is ideal for people who have lots of great ideas but need help making these ideas a reality.
The only disadvantage of web development is that, for some people, it is not an affordable option because it typically requires hiring a professional team that includes a web designer, developer, content writer, etc.
