SiteBuilder Range of Services

Range of Services - 9 / 10

Although SiteBuilder provides Windows web hosting, its offerings are much more geared toward website development for beginners. There is little, if any, information of the technical aspects of its web hosting platform. The company focuses on its customizable and flexible templates, eCommerce tools for those who wish to add a marketplace to their website, and its included domain name and email address features. SiteBuilder's drag and drop editor makes the website building process particularly quick and easy.

SiteBuilder Security Features

Security - 9 / 10

SiteBuilder's security features for its web hosting services are not entirely detailed. Aside from setting up SSL certification there doesn't seem to be any additional information on how the company secures its servers, or indeed if it has malware scans and anti-spam filters. As previously mentioned, this is because SiteBuilder is mainly geared toward giving those with little technical experience the ability to create quick and attractive websites.

Like most web hosting services, SiteBuilder.com offers a promotional price per month, but charges you for the entire selected term up front. At the end of the term, you will be charged the more expensive regular rate again for the entire original term unless you cancel. SiteBuilder is not clear about how long this term is, and you have to go through the process of creating your account and building your website before you see any of this information. The company offers a 14-day, money back guarantee.
