Website designer with a visual drag-and-drop interface and all of the capabilities of HTML5 and CSS, without the coding.
On-page editing for non-designers to add and update site content without breaking the page design.
Webflow content management system (CMS)
The Webflow CMS offers all the necessary tools to create, modify, customize, format, and manage dynamic content on your site.
Webflow offers an ecommerce plan so you can set up your online store. Alternatively, you can also choose to use third party integrations like Shopify.
A wide library of integrations and plug-ins, including app integrations, content marketing solutions and analytics and targeting tools.
Fast, scalable hosting without the complexities of domain setup. You will need to start with your own domain, which you can also buy inside Webflow through GoDaddy or Google Domains. Average response times are 0.01 seconds, ensuring near-instant page loading times.
Over 1000 free and premium responsive Webflow templates for business, portfolio and blog websites.
Security and encryption
Webflow offers secure hosting services and SSL certificates to keep its sites safe from security threats.
Webflow’s customer support team is available via email Monday through Friday with response times between 24-48 business hours.
Over 1500 free templates and over 2000 premium templates for your Webflow site. The free templates are more modern than those at Wordpress, and the premium ones are excellent.
Webflow has features and plans to support blogs, portfolios, ecommerce sites, and business websites.
In case Webflow's editor doesn't offer a feature you need, the platform provides a variety of third-party integrations including analytics and targeting, anti-spam, app integration and automation, asset management, and content marketing tools.
Webflow positions its product as an alternative to site builders like Squarespace and Wix. However, even without coding, using the Webflow Designer without any experience may be a hassle for the average person who is looking to quickly set up their website. (That said, templates are available for easier setup.)
If you are a blogger, you may expect the ability to write and upload content on mobile. Unlike Wordpress, Webflow does not have a mobile app, so all design and content updates must be done on desktop.
Webflow doesn't offer the ability to customize websites at the code level. It is only possible to modify code through the Embed Code component.
Even the top tier of Webflow’s ecommerce plans limits the number of product listings, where Shopify does not. Other ecommerce-specific features like dropshipping support and its own payment processor are lacking.
