Founded in 1996, Homestead.com is committed to helping small businesses kickstart their websites, offering customers the choice between building their own website and having their website custom made for them: Rated as one of the top website builders, Homestead is favored by users who are looking for extremely easy to use, highly adaptive sire building services at very affordable rates.
Homestead customers can choose between three main website building packages which include 'Build your Own' website builder packages, Ecommerce packages and We Build it for You packages. Customers can try out a free trial before they commit to buy, however, customers who sign up for a free trial will still be required to fill in their personal info and credit card details, which effectively complicates and prolongs sign up and may deter customers who wish, for the time being, to keep their payment information private.
Homestead’s various website building packages are tailored for customers who wish to build their own personal or commercial websites, as well as for customers who want to utilize the website’s team of expert designers and to have their website built for them. Homestead ‘s packages also offer hosting and domain name registration.
Extremely intuitive and easy to use, Homestead offers customers full controllability and customizability over their websites. Also, the Build it your Own website builders do not allow for more than 5 page sites per customer and do not offer wrap text around images, a fact which makes customizing your website a little more difficult.
Basically, customers have the choice of building their very own website, which is the more affordable choice and is recommended mainly for personal use, building their own Ecommerce site, which is a slightly more expensive package but offers such features as shopping cart and payment integration software, and We Build it for You packages, which are costly but cover everything from professional copywriting and site design to one on one consultation and site registration maintenance.
On the downside, Homestead does not explicitly include mobile responsive features in their packages. However, because they do offer a “We Build It For You” solution, you can request mobile adaptive sites for your website.
Homestead website builder packages some with complete marketing suites including SEO tools that helps increase your sites ranking on search sites like Google Maps, Yahoo!, Local and Bing Maps, and more.
Homestead offers highly accessible customer support that you can get in touch with directly. In addition, their websites community gives customers an opportunity to discuss and learn from each other to improve their website.
