If you’re not boycotting Microsoft like Arachnophlia creator Paul Lutus, then you should check out Microsoft Visual Studio’s free “Community” edition of their IDE, which supports up to five users. While their paid versions offer more advanced features, their free version includes all the essential tools for HTML editing. Plus they throw in some useful tools for mobile app development, such as code sharing between Android and iOS.

Unfortunately I don’t know of any drag and drop builders that don’t have any of the limitations that I pointed out. The leading builders, such as Squarespace, Weebly, Wix, etc, are always improving their functionality, but I guess it’s very rare to be able to build a website that is custom built where you can customize majority of the website and also upgrade hosting services.
PSPad is another Windows-only solution. Some of the products on our list aren’t really intended for commercial use (especially those with paid versions), but PSPad is always free and can be used by commercial and government institutions at no charge. The program offers code templates, a spell checker, and auto-correction capabilities. It was last updated in March 2017.

The ideal option for someone who’s creating his or her first website. It has considerable scalability and works well with low and medium traffic websites. We receive 1.5 million views every month and we run WordPress, so that gives you an idea of what medium traffic constitutes if you were wondering. Even large websites such as TIME Magazine, CNN, TED, Techcrunch, NBC and others use WordPress to server millions of pageviews each day.

2017-11-22 Daniel Glazman of Disruptive Innovations released version 3.01 of BlueGriffon, a WYSIWYG Web editor with support for HTML, MathML, SVG and CSS (full level 2 and parts of level 3). Paying versions add additional functions, such as EPUB creation, predefined templates, HTTP PUT support, visual CSS editor, MathML editor, project manager and responsive design mode. (Linux, Windows, Mac; Open Source)
To ease this requirement, some editors allow editing of the markup in more visually organized modes than simple color highlighting, but in modes not considered WYSIWYG. These editors typically include the option of using palette windows or dialog boxes to edit the text-based parameters of selected objects. These palettes allow editing parameters in individual fields, or inserting new tags by filling out an onscreen form, and may include additional widgets to present and select options when editing parameters (such as previewing an image or text styles) or an outline editor to expand and collapse HTML objects and properties.

Unlike WordPress, Drupal is not too well suited for the technically inept or a first time website developer. Drupal is an open source CMS and is largely utilized by big corporations with vast websites and high traffic loads. It has its own customization possibilities with themes and plugins created to add value to Drupal sites. Drupal websites are a bit faster and little less taxing on the host’s server resources.

This popular scripting language is not just one of those fleeting web development trends (Flash, anyone?); it’s here to stay, and has long been used for server-side programming on a large number of websites. If you’ve been itching to learn it, start here with Zend’s free tutorials. They’re easy to understand and will have you writing code in no time.
BlueGriffon has a few paid versions of their product, but their free version offers the essential tools you’ll need for designing web pages. It’s one of three WYSIWYG editors on our list, and, according to their website, it’s “officially recommended by the French Government as the Web Authoring Tool for the French Administration.” So if you trust French admins’ taste in HTML editors, this is the tool for you!
But you’re right in that some of these drag and drop website builders don’t have export functions. The main reason is that once the websites leave their proprietary platform where they enable you to build websites without coding (drag & drop), then the drag and drop features won’t work anymore. It’s their proprietary software that enable users to use their own tools.
