    I have a few websites with Jimdo now and I just love the system. On the few occasions that I have had to be in touch with their customer service they have been quick and right on point.

    With Jimdo there are all these different services that you get when you sign up for your e-commerce or your business program – you get customer service, analytics. Seeing how to improve your website is very important. I would not be where I am today if I didn’t have a website.

Notable features

Two ways of creating a website: Jimdo Creator and Jimdo Dolphin – You can create a website with this builder using two ways – Jimdo Creator and Jimdo Dolphin. Jimdo Creator has a complete editing interface that helps you easily add in personalized content and resize and drag elements. On the other hand, Jimdo Dolphin is an ADI (artificial design interface) solution that can create a website easily; all you will need to do is answer a few questions and you’re done! Jimdo Creator allows better control on the website while Jimdo Dolphin may not allow much leeway for editing.

Multiple features and plugins available – With this website builder, you can select the features to embed on any page of your website. If there’s something that is unavailable on the feature tab, POWr Plugins, an independent company partnering with Jimdo can provide you with these.

Domains – Although the company offers a free domain for the first year for the paid plans, the free plan comes with a “.jimdosite.com subdomain.” However, it is important to note that the renewal cost for the domain can be around $20 per year. If you have an existing domain with another provider, you can transfer it to your Jimdo account without switching providers.

SEO – With an efficient SEO, your website will be able to achieve higher rankings on any search engine. The website builder offers handy tools that can help give your website the required boost. It also supports third-party applications to help with the site’s SEO.
