Making the Case for Namecheap's Website Builder
In the past, building your own website from scratch could seem daunting, tiresome, and downright expensive. No wonder so many businesses would choose to forgo a website in favor of a Facebook page or some other social media presence.
Thankfully nowadays, if you’re not a coder, it’s not a problem. With Namecheap, we believe building a website should take less time, cost less, and perhaps most importantly for all you not-so-technical users, require less effort than you think.
What is Website Builder?
Because we want every business to grow and be successful, each of our Shared Hosting Plans (Stellar, Stellar Plus, and Stellar Business) now features a complimentary Website Builder. This means you can start building your own fully-fledged website to expand your reach and bring in potential customers.
Our Website Builder gives you the freedom to build your website as you see fit. Featuring a visual editing interface with simple drag-and-drop solutions, it’s inherently easy to add such elements as images, text, videos and the like. The result? An aesthetically-pleasing, easy-to-use website that is up and running in virtually no time at all.
And, when compared to the ever-popular WordPress, where editing code for themes or plug-ins is commonplace, our Website Builder is ideal for those “self-professed” tech novices who have little to no specialist knowledge.
The best part? Our Website Builder is included at no additional charge. And, with Shared Hosting Plans that start at $2.88 a month, there’s never been a better time to start building.

How Do I Start Using My Website Builder?
Once you purchase a shared hosting plan, all you have to do is follow the set-up instructions that you receive in your welcome email. Once you’ve done that, simply locate the Website Builder icon from your cPanel (the control panel that acts as a separate account, designed for managing your hosting service on the server) and choose your domain. From here, you’ll be able to select from the wide variety of ready-to-use templates and start building your website—in minutes.
If you need a little more help, our Customer Support team is available 24/7 to lend a hand.
The Bottom Line?
Unlike other competitors out there, Namecheap does not charge an additional price for our Website Builder. Even better, all features are enabled by default, meaning you do not need to upgrade to access more, i.e. customizing your favicon or footer. Best of all, we have a customer service staff who will be happy to answer any and all of your hosting questions.
So, what are you waiting for? Start building!
