5 Ways to Build Your Own Website for Free

5 Ways to Build Your Own Website for Free

Knowing how to code and build a website from scratch is a valuable skill found few and far between. Companies sometimes pay big bucks to people who possess these skills and the results are usually highly praised.

But websites aren’t limited to big companies with big money who are capable of paying for the skills needed to build them. Thankfully, for the average people like us who have a small business or an idea or some message they wish to share, there are free options for building websites and they do not disappoint at all.

Keep reading to discover five free ways to build your own website.

Wix (.com)

If you’re looking to keep it as simple as possible, yet still have countless customizable design specs, then look no further than Wix.

Wix is a top-notch, perfect-place-to-start, free website builder that makes the simple act of dragging and dropping more powerful than ever. It is built on a “freemium” business model, earning revenue solely from premium memberships that, believe me, come with some premium perks.

Users can create HTML5 websites, as well as mobile sites, all through the simple act of drag-and-drop. No previous coding experience is necessary whatsoever, merely the knowledge of what a computer is and how to navigate around it. I highly, highly recommend starting here when building a website because it is a superb site that offers superb results, for free!

WordPress (.com)

Just like Wix, WordPress is a web template system that allows you to build and customize sites for free. An open-source content management system, WordPress is an Internet hosting service that has become widely used around the world.

With the option to build a .com or .org site—depending on how much work and control you desire to put in—Wordpress has options for all skill levels in regards to building sites.

Web.com

While most of the other sites give you free rein on how to design your site, Web.com does all the work for you. Simply give them a call, pitch your ideas and thoughts about your site and then sit back while they work their magic and create the whole thing for you…for free!

They do offer the option to build the site on your own if that is the route you wish to take and offer pre-designed layouts to work with if you’d like.

Weebly (.com)

Weebly is a web-hosting service that offers a free website builder. It is actually very similar to Wix, in that it is operated by a mere drag-and-drop control and offers a wide variety of modern templates.

With over 40 million users, Weebly is helping people all around the world build not only businesses but also themselves.

Learn HTML & CSS

While this is certainly not the easiest route, it is surely the most fulfilling. If you really wish to build your own website, every single last detail, for free, then learning how to ACTUALLY build it is the best way to go. Sure, learning HTML and CSS can be fun. No, learning HTML and CSS is not easy and yes, it does take a while, but it is an extremely valuable skill that can get a lot more than your own website. There are countless free classes online teaching these two programming languages, so, essentially, it is all up to you to put in the effort.
