1&1 Ionos Review
Expensive, limited and old-fashioned
The 1&1 Ionos website builder program has a decent website editor, but one that is sorely let down by its outdated templates and expensive packages. Compared to the likes of Wix or Weebly, 1&1 Ionos is sorely lacking.
- In-depth editor

|Verdict||Comfortably the best website builder we've tested, and brilliantly simple, even for beginners||Another great website builder that's also very approachable for first-timers||Stands out with its attractive templates, though not quite as well-rated as Wix||Templates and prices aren't as great as those offered by rival website builders.||Perfect for blogs, but can be fiddly for other types of site||Some big improvements to templates in the past year, but a little light on features||Can help you build a website, but the options are more limited compared to rival website tools|
