Your specific needs will determine which website builder is best for you. 

For more complex customization, Wix and WordPress are great options. For more advanced features, like eCommerce or email marketing, Wix, Weebly, WordPress, and Squarespace are awesome. If you’re looking for stylish templates, Squarespace is a good bet. And if you want a no-frills basic website, Google Sites is free and integrated with Google Drive.
