  1. 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.

  2. hi ma'm i want to learn a knowledge about making website by word press so where from start your video in youtube, so that gradually i can learn making website thanks for your reply

  3. 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!
