Website Builders Versus Coding from Scratch
A decade or so ago, coding a website used to be very hard. This is because everything had to be coded manually and from scratch. Any error in the code had to be located manually and fixed. As a result, building a website used to take a very long time. Clients had to pay a lot of money to get their websites built. Even after the birth of website builders, most clients still preferred hiring professionals to build their website because the tools didn’t offer the same quality.
Things have changed in 2020. CMS platforms like WordPress have made it easy for one to code WordPress website fast and with ease. Majority of developers no longer write website code from scratch. 95% of the time, one can build a website using builders or without writing any code.
