What is Strikingly?

Strikingly is a website builder and hosting platform that allows users to create and publish websites easily and quickly, without requiring extensive technical knowledge or coding skills.

Disadvantage of Strikingly:

  • Limited Customization. Strikingly’s ease of use may come at the cost of limited customization options. Users might find it challenging to achieve a highly unique or personalized design beyond the scope of the available templates and editor.
  • Feature Constraints. While Strikingly offers essential features for building websites, it may lack more advanced functionalities that other website builders or custom-coded websites can provide. Users with specific and complex requirements might find the platform limiting.
  • Branding on Free Plan. The free plan of Strikingly displays the Strikingly branding on users’ websites. To remove this branding, users need to upgrade to a paid plan. This can be a drawback for those seeking a more professional and polished look without any third-party branding.
  • Migration Difficulties. If users decide to move their website away from Strikingly to another platform in the future, exporting content and design may not be as straightforward as with other website builders. This could be a concern for those who want the flexibility to switch to another service later on.
  • Pricing. While Strikingly offers a free plan, its more advanced features and custom domain options are only available in paid plans. Depending on users’ needs and budget, the pricing might be a disadvantage compared to other website builders or self-hosted solutions.
  • Dependency on Strikingly’s Platform. Building a website with Strikingly means relying on their platform and infrastructure. If the company faces issues or changes its offerings, it could impact users’ websites and online presence.

It’s essential to evaluate these disadvantages in the context of your specific website requirements and goals. Consider your technical skills, desired features, budget, and long-term plans when choosing a website builder.
