Back when computers were the only way to access the internet, and screens came in about two sizes, web design was easy. Just make a website that fits the resolution of the device and call it a day.

These days? It's all about responsiveness. 


People access websites from any range of devices—from desktops and laptops to smartphones and smartwatches—so you need to have a site that looks great across all screen sizes. And in this Pineapple Builder guide, we’ll introduce you to five of the best responsive website builders that’ll ensure your web pages look good, regardless of the device it’s accessed from.


Let's dive in.


What Is a Responsive Website Builder?


Have you ever visited a professionally designed website on mobile and clicked “view in desktop mode”? The change is usually massive—and it usually looks a lot worse than the mobile version. Well, that’s responsiveness in action. 


In web design, “responsiveness” is when a website is able to adapt to different devices and screen sizes without compromising functionality.


So, putting all this together, a responsive website builder is just a tool that helps you create a responsive website—usually without coding or technical knowledge required. This usually works thanks to a set of pre-made tools, like:

  • Responsive templates

  • Automatic scaling

  • Drag-and-drop editors
