    Website Builder vs WordPress Managed Hosting

    I have been using Godaddy WordPress managed hosting for years. I have not tried the website builder software. I am wondering if any of you have experience with both and can provide guidance as to any benefits or drawbacks of using the website builder tool in comparison to WordPress.

    Does website builder create site maps and update google and bring when new content is added? Do they have blogging functions for adding new blog posts? Are they faster to deploy and update or slower than WordPress one click installs?


    Thanks everyone for your feedback!

    They are really 2 different systems - Website Builder is more like Wix or Weebly - the features are the set feature set no plugins/etc and most things are wizard driven.
