Website Builder Comparison. Novi Builder vs Major Competitors

The web grows bigger, and the customers become pickier. Soon after the first visual page builders were introduced to the community, the demand started to grow, with more companies launching their own drag-and-drop solutions. Today, drag-and-drop builders can be purchased independently or integrated into the ready-made themes. Whatever CMS or eCommerce platform you decide to work with, you may feel certain that there is a builder that will match your search criteria.

In one of our previously published posts, we were talking about Novi Builder. The functional drag-and-drop HTML builder is intended to be used by the users of different skill levels and for multiple purposes. The visual page builder can be bought either independently or as a part of a website template. And what about its major competitors? How can those be bought and what features do those include? Let's discover in the website builder comparison chart.

Website Builder Comparison

In this post, we are going to compare Novi Builder with the three major competitors, which are also used for the creation of the responsive HTML sites. These are:

  1. HTML Builder. It's sold independently. The builder is being mainly used for the creation of the landing page. You can also find it inside of other builders used as the white-label product.
  2. Architect Builder can be also purchased as an independent product. At the moment, there are no ready-made website templates containing this builder available. Architect Builder is used as the foundation for saas Dorkoy.
  3. Variant Builder isn't sold independently. Designed and developed by MediumRare, the builder can be found inside their website templates only. Currently, this is one of the greatest competitors to Novi Builder in regards to the functionality that it provides for the end-users, webmasters, and businesses.

So, what are the characteristics making Novi Builder stronger or less powerful than its competitors? Let's divide the comparison table into several sections, each of which will highlight the specific functionality that targets the end-users, web developers, and businesses.

Comparison Chart

There are always two sides of a coin. In addition to the range of the features making one solution different from another, there are also certain characteristics those have in common. Speaking about Novi Builder and the three competitors, all of them support multi-page HTML templates and landing pages. All of them feature tools and features that will be of use for the end-users, business owners, as well as webmasters. However, only Novi Builder can be applied to the existing HTML sites. Is there any anything else making Novi so special? Let's take a look.

Looking at the tables, you can pick the best builder that will meet your personal or business requirements perfectly well, import the already existing site and tweak its pages code-free or grab a ready-made theme integrated with the visual builder to get started with the online project with the minimum effort.

And who is your winner? What features are of the biggest value to you as you select the best drag-and-drop HTML builder?
