    WPBeginner, what solution is best for a website that allows a gateway that provides a recurring payment feature?
    What would you suggest for a website that promotes products as an affiliate marketer? For instance I'm settling real estate wealth building products as an affiliate for several companies.
    Thank you. I'm a new subscriber!

    I have looked in on some of these sites.
    The biggest cons I've experienced with ready-made solutions are speeds, responsiveness (mobility) and loading times.
    Eg. SquareSpace loads lots of scripts before the content is displayed and this can take a lot of time before users see the content on a mobile. Lots of customers and traffic lost there. Besides that their template might package content in "new images" so when the screen i small the content won't flow smoothly underneath the text and the text/buttons get unclickable/unreadable.

    Great content. Perfect for beginners, and you are an awesome teacher as well. My son is thinking about building websites so I am going to forward this to him. Thanks so much.

    Zyro is also a nice website builder. It has friendly interface, modern designs, and cheapest premium plans.
