Design flexibility is a major consideration when it comes to choosing a website builder and/or content management system (CMS). Providers like Wix and Weebly offer decent customizability, but WordPress remains the builder of choice for a lot of developers.
Ultimately, this is because WordPress is one of the only open source, fully customizable CMS. As an open source program, it gives you access to every single part of your website’s front and back end. You will also own your code and every file you need to export your site and upload it to a new server.
