Squarespace and Weebly ranked as the second and third most popular website building platforms, each of which accounted for over 15 percent of total market share.
Website building tools such as Wix and Squarespace allow for users to construct and manage customizable websites without the need for advanced coding knowledge.

Between 2012 and 2017 website builder revenue increased from around one billion U.S. dollars to over 1.5 billion dollars. As overall web traffic and global internet access continue to rise, it has become increasingly important for businesses to have an online site for sales, marketing, and general contact information.
