Creating websites in 2021 is easier than ever, not just because of all the free education you can find on youtube and Google, but because there are a lot of companies creating tools for people that don’t know how to code. In fact, non-coding tools it’s an industry in itself and quite profitable I might say.
I wanted to make a post answering the most common question that people had about the Divi theme, mainly because I started a web design company using Divi from 2018 to 2020 and quite successfully.
So hopefully this will clear up some gaps and doubts about the information you gather about Divi and help you make a better decision if Divi is for you or Not.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DIVI THEME AND DIVI BUILDER?
This is one of the most asked questions that my clients ask me when we start a project and the simplest answer I can give them is the theme has the builder installed inside, and the builder can be used on different themes not just divi, this is very helpful since some WordPress websites have a determined theme and if the clients like he’s a template you could use the Divi builder to modify some elements in it.
The main benefit of the theme is that you can customize every aspect of the website and it makes it easy for a user to change things in a single element or as global settings.

This is true, the extra code that is integrated into the theme and the builder so that users can drag and drop elements and design in the front end has a pretty substantial load and because of this, your site speed will suffer a bit.

I would go as far as monthly but just to have sane numbers they practically update bimonthly. Usually, they have game-changing updates to make workflow faster and easier for users, I can’t tell you how many times I use their updates such as global colors and presets. it makes it very easy to customize the whole web page with a few clicks.
