It’s finally that time of the year again when we can cast a vote for our favorite web services and help them win the Webby Award.

Website builders have come a long way. The DIY web publishing industry has been growing and growing over years, morphing from primitive content management systems into multi-faceted platforms with beautiful designs, advanced features, native mobile apps and unparalleled eCommerce capabilities. So, it’s no accident that dollars are literally flying into this industry :).
