About Zyro

Zyro is a website builder powered by Hostinger, a popular web hosting company. It was established in 2019 and has its headquarters in Kaunas, Lithuania. Zyro offers ecommerce, website building, and AI solutions to its customers.

Zyro image

The best part about using Zyro website builder is that you don’t need any coding knowledge or designing skills in order to get started with it. It lets you choose from a variety of pre-designed templates or build your own website from scratch on a blank canvas. 

By default, your website is a sub-domain under zyrosite.com. However, you are free to add your custom domain to it as well.

Zyro User Interface

The user interface of Zyro is quite modern, attractive, and easy to use. It is available in 25+ languages, including English, Spanish, French, Russian, Italian, etc. 

Zyro UI

The header panel comprises all the tabs for easily accessing your websites, domains, emails, checking subscriptions, referral program, roadmap, etc. There are three ways to build your website on Zyro. 

Ways to create new website in Zyro
  • Use a website template.
  • Use their AI Website Generator.
  • Build your website manually from scratch.

All your designed websites are visible on the Websites tab. You can view your live site, make edits to it, rename it, duplicate it, delete it, and access site settings.

If you opt for the eCommerce plan, you can also set up an online store and manage it with one click! On the bottom right, you will find a Help button where you can get your queries resolved by their customer service team. 

Overall, the interface of Zyro looks modern, organized, and friendly for beginners. 

Zyro Editor

Drag & Drop Editor

With Zyro, you get the WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) editor. This means the changes you make on the editor are reflected exactly the same way on the final website. 

Gridlines in Zyro editor

The editor supports drag-and-drop functionality and a unique grid system that offers greater design freedom. Thus, you can quickly arrange all the elements without messing up the appearance of your website.   

Mobile editing feature on Zyro

The editor is also responsive on both desktop and mobile devices. You can not only preview your site in the mobile view, but it also supports mobile editing! Overall, the Zyro editor is intuitive, flexible, and easy to use for beginners. 

Pages

Once you are in the editor window, you can find a list of pages on your website from the left panel. You can edit these pages separately by clicking on them. 

Pages in Zyro

New pages can be added with a single click by selecting a template from pre-designed layouts or designing one from scratch. You can edit page settings, hide specific pages from the navigation menu, and also add a new drop-down menu to your website. 

Elements

Elements are the most important aspect of a website builder. Zyro supports 12 elements including Text, Button, Video, Image, Social Icons, Insta Feed, Embed code, etc. 

Zyro elements

In my opinion, these elements are sufficient for beginners but experienced users like me would find them to be quite limited. They can definitely work on adding more advanced elements to their editor. 

Styles

The Zyro Editor lets you experiment with the appearance of your website. You can change your website’s color scheme by choosing one from dozens of color palettes.

Zyro Website Styles

It also lets you edit the colors in the palette, modify the typography of every element, and edit the shape of buttons. 

Sections

Sections are pre-made blocks of content that you can directly use on your website. 

Sections on Zyro

These comprise the About section, Contact Form, Headlines, Images, Map, Slide Show, Social icons, Follow Us section, etc. You can add any section to your page with a single click. 

Blogs

Surprisingly, Zyro also offers Blogging features with its website builder plans. You can create and manage your blogs right from your website builder dashboard. However, the functions are quite basic in nature. 

Blogging on Zyro

If you wish to start professional blogging, you should go with WordPress. But if you’re just creating blogs for sharing information and don’t need to blog frequently, Zyro will do the job for you.

Zyro Templates

Zyro is focused on providing an easy and hassle-free website designing experience to newbies. Website templates play a significant role in making that possible!

With Zyro, you get 140+ beautifully designed and professional templates for creating different types of websites.

Zyro templates

Some of them might be portfolio sites, photography sites, resume sites, blogs, eCommerce sites, landing pages, restaurant sites, etc. 

If you want to create a site from scratch, you can use the Blank website template and drag and drop different sections and elements onto it. Overall, I found their template collection quite attractive. 

Zyro Speed

Speed is not considered an important factor while evaluating website builders. Website Builders are mainly evaluated on their ease of use and design experience.

However, if your website doesn’t load quickly, you might lose SEO points and customers. We don’t want that now, do we? Keeping this in mind, I performed a speed test on my image-heavy website designed with Zyro. 

Let’s check out the results.

Zyro speed test - New York

When I tested my website from the New York location, it loaded in 4.8 seconds. Next, when I tested it from Bangalore, India, the speeds came out to be 6.49 seconds. 

Zyro speed test - Bangalore

To be honest, I found the speeds of Zyro quite decent as compared to other website builders. 

Zyro Customer Support

Zyro provides customer support in four ways: Email, Knowledge Base, Live Chat, and Contact Form.

Zyro knowledge base

Their knowledge base has an extensive collection of 250+ helpful articles spanning categories like Website Builder, Blog, Domains, Integrations, AI-Powered Tools, Accounts, etc.

I found their live chat support to be quite appreciable for beginners. Their customer support team is polite and helpful. 

Zyro chat support

You generally receive replies to your queries within 5-10 minutes. However, it takes them some time to troubleshoot problems. In case you wish to revisit your resolved queries, they also keep your previous conversations saved in their chat box. 

Overall, the quality of support is good for newbies starting out with designing their website. 

Zyro AI Features

What sets Zyro apart from other website builders? The answer is its powerful and efficient AI tools. These tools will help you get started with your website quickly and more effectively. Let’s check out what they are!

AI Heat Map

Zyro AI Heatmap is quite an advanced tool that analyzes your web page and displays those areas where the user’s attention would be focused. 

To get started, you need to upload an image in the JPG or PNG format and it will highlight the focus points on the image. 

For example, this is the result when I checked my website’s homepage with it. The green highlights are the areas where the user’s attention is highest. 

Zyro AI Heatmap

According to the suggestions offered, you can arrange major elements on those highlighted spots to increase your conversions. Thus, this tool can help you optimize your site better. 

It is quite surprising to see this feature being offered at such an affordable price range. The Heatmap feature is generally available as a paid add-on along with website builders. 

I don’t think any other website builder is offering it for free with their plans as of now, which is why I am highly impressed with Zyro!

AI Writer

AI Writer is a GP3-based writing tool that generates plagiarism free text content for your website. It is similar to tools like Rytr, WriterZen, etc. 

Selecting category in Zyro AI Writer

To get started with this tool, you need to choose one from various categories like Small Business, Agriculture and Farming, Gaming, Sports, Music and Entertainment, Hotel and Travel, etc or enter a few sentences of your own.

Next, you need to choose a topic specific to your industry to further narrow down what your website is about. Once this is done, it auto-generates a few paragraphs that you can edit and insert on your website! 

Zyro AI Writer

The image above shows the content generated for the category ‘Sports and Entertainment’ and sub-category ‘Gym’.

AI Logo Maker

AI Logo Maker is an intelligent solution for quickly creating professional logos. You can create your logo by yourself or use their AI logo generator.

Selecting shape in Zyro Logo Maker

You begin by picking a starter logo, then you select a color and shape. Further, you can edit it out in their Logo Maker. The icon collection of the Zyro Logo Maker is quite impressive and diverse. 

Editing Logo in Zyro AI Logo Maker

In my opinion, if you want logos for commercial purposes, this tool will be of huge help in the initial phase. 

Other AI Tools

Apart from these tools, Zyro also offers several other AI tools that can help you find inspiration for your business and blogs. Let us take a quick look at what they are.

AI Image Resizer

Zyro AI Image Resizer

As the name suggests, the Image Resizer tool helps you resize any image to a different dimension. All you need to do is upload an image and select a size from the drop-down menu.

It will automatically download your resized image in the PNG format.

AI Business Name Generator

Need inspiration for naming your business? Zyro’s Business Name Generator might be of some help. 

Zyro AI Business Name Generator

All you need to do is enter 1-2 keywords related to your business. It will automatically generate business name ideas for you. The suggestions offered by it are decent but the tool is quite basic. It does not have any options to customize the results generated. 

AI Slogan Generator

If you want a memorable slogan for your business or website, the AI Slogan Generator might do the job for you. 

Zyro AI Slogan Generator

To begin, you can enter 1-2 keywords around your brand category and it will generate relevant slogans for you. 

In my experience, a few of the results were unique, but not all of them were necessarily helpful. However, you can generate the results multiple times until you find the right one!

AI Blog Title Generator

Zyro AI Blog Title Generator

If you’re out of ideas for your next blog post, you can check out Zyro’s AI Blog Title Generator. For using this tool, you need to first select one from 9 categories, including Food, Fashion, Fitness, Music, Lifestyle, etc. 

It will generate 10 random blog titles around your chosen category. If you don’t like them, you can click on the ‘Generate Again’ button. The suggestions offered by this tool are quite basic, though.

AI Image Upscaler

Zyro Image Upscaler

Image Upscaler enhances the resolution of your images in a few clicks! With this tool, you can improve the quality of your blurred images  

However, when I tested it with a few images, I couldn’t find any significant improvement in the resolution. 

AI Image Background Remover

Background Remover is a quite simple and straightforward tool. All you need to do is upload an image. It erases the background and lets you download the image in PNG format. 

Zyro AI Background Remover

The final image looks quite neat and I personally found these tools similar to Background Remover tools of Canva, Crello, and Pixelied.

AI Favicon Generator

Favicon is the tiny icon visible in the browser tab along with your website’s name. This tool lets you create quick favicons for your website. 

To get started, you can add a text and edit its font type, size, color, and apply some basic formatting on it. 

Zyro AI Favicon Generator

You can also choose a background color, shape, upload an image and set the layout of your favicon. Finally, after making all the changes, the favicon can be downloaded in PNG or ICO formats. 

However, in my experience, this tool was a little buggy. It didn’t load any shapes and failed to display the image uploaded on the editor. 

Additionally, you can also check out their Privacy Policy Generator, Refund Policy Generator, and Terms and Conditions Generator. These might be helpful if you sell products and services on your site! 

Zyro SEO Features

Search Engine Optimization has become a primary requirement for every website these days. Zyro offers limited SEO features for their users.

It lets you add a page title, page description, website language, and preview image for every page on your website. Though these features are pretty basic, they are enough for beginners and non-technical users!

  2. We have terrible experience with Zyro. The editor is very buggy, especially the text boxes. Sometimes, changes are not saved and you only notice it, when opening your site. Sometimes, the page is all over the place after publishing. One day, Zyro had to load a backup of an old version of our site and we lost hours of work. We had so many issues and chats with support. It is almost impossible to work with.
