Almost all businesses need a proper online website which looks professional and performs well. Those with lot of capital can hire top firms to that for them but many of the businesses start small and have a tight budget so they usually prefer WordPress Websites. Contrary to popular belief website builders are a very useful tool because we can edit everything by going through the dashboard and select an element and change it to our needs and preferences. One of the popular website is Jimdo
Fridtjof, Matthias and Christian started coding websites back in the day when they were still in school and created hundreds of websites after getting feedback from many people that they too wished to build websites like them. Matthias instantly liked the idea, too. They had no budget, so the three of them moved into an old farmhouse that was owned by Fridtjof’s parents. Later in the year 2007 they started Jimdo. The company grew with each new website that was created.
They have now over 200 employees from 23 different countries working in offices in Hamburg, Tokyo, and San Francisco building over 15 million website for entrepreneurs, musicians, photographers and others. The Jimdo was featured by The New York Times, USA Today, The Economist and many others and they also have an app in the iOs app store and Google Play Store.
