Easy Website Builder is getting an upgrade. Here’s what’s changing.

Creating a web presence can seem expensive and extremely technical. The goal of the new upgrade is to make it more like social media in the sense that is it easy to learn, quick to use and always on hand–which is essential for busy people.

Some of the major differences between the old and new versions of Easy Website Builder include content sections instead of templates, the removal of drag and drop tech, and a reimagined toolbar—all improvements that will greatly improve your experience.

The first thing you’ll notice is there are fewer buttons, fewer controls, fewer panels and fewer pages. Instead of choosing from a library of templates and dragging-and-dropping website elements into place, there is a library of of pre-formed ‘sections’ that cover a huge range of content layout possibilities. This removes the need for repetitive drag and drop interactions and makes it easy to get a layout that looks great on every screen.

Probably the biggest thing you’ll notice with the upgrade is:

  • A new focus on the mobile experience 
  • Saying goodbye to drag and drop 
  • Interactions are completely thumb-friendly
  • Design excellence for all screen sizes
