Websites built with BoldGrid and powered by WordPress have several benefits over other website builders such as Wix, Weebly and Squarespace. Wix, Weebly, Squarespace and many other website platforms are proprietary property of their respective companies. Websites built using these platforms are not compatible with any other website hosting, and therefore must always be hosted by the respective company. Regardless of future pricing, performance or preference, these websites cannot be moved to any other hosting provider. WordPress, on the other hand, is a free and open-source platform.
Websites built using Wordpress can be freely moved between any hosting provider. Additionally, WordPress is constantly evolving with new editions and features. Websites built using WordPress can take advantage of all current features and future improvements for free, forever. Wix, Weebly and Squarespace are commercial, closed and proprietary platforms.
