Comments: I have been using Homestead since 2001, their technology is behind the times and I am migrating all of my clients and their websites off to Bluehost with Wordpress. The technology is not HTML5 which if you do your research is important - your website needs to be responsive - so it automagically fits on whatever device the person is browsing on and Homestead does not use this technology and they do not plan on it - or let you use wordpress. They are too expensive when you consider you can have a hosting site for 100 a year plus use the latest technology from wordpress - which is what over 50% of the global websites are built on. No brainer - Homestead is a dinosaur who has not kept up with the times. Sad to say...
Pros: easy to use
Cons: Their email service is a joke - in the past 2 weeks - I have had my email bounced back and not received. ALSO this happened earlier this year and it was ongoing for a month - this time it will be an estimated 3 weeks before it is fixed... ridiculous!

Pros: The software is very intuitive so you can easily figure out how to produce the results you want.
Cons: It tends to glich a lot. Like typing will all of a sudden not work or it won't change your font size. Sometimes pictures won't rotate.
Good but dated

Long time Homestead user .
Comments: I have been with Homestead for a long time. It is probably the easiest websiste creation platform for beginners there is.
The only problem is that the templates and other items are very outdated. Some of the items such as page backround, buttons and element are the same elements that were on there 12 years ago
Pros: Easy to use and make websites and have multiple websites. Uses paypal so you can start selling things from your site quickly.
Cons: Dated templates and lackmof modules as well as old outdated page elements and backrounds.
