1: Wix –
today we will learn how to create a Website in free. The biggest of them all is Wix. They have more users than any other site builder and it’s easy to see why. It’s packed with unique features and great templates. According to our tests, it’s the best choice to create a paid site – but what about a free one? Does it fare just as well in this arena?
Well, it depends on what you are looking for. It’s great that they hardly have any restrictions on the free plan in terms of features and templates. On desktop computers, they place a pretty visible ad at the top of your website that is sticky (i.e. it will stay even when you start scrolling the page). Fortunately, on mobile phones, it far less visible and also not sticky. To use your own custom domain name, you’ll need the Combo plan at least, which is ₹125 per month.
The URL you will get for free: accountname.wix.com/customname
What we liked: their spectacular selection of themes and the flexibility of their editor. Also, they have an extensive app market and 500MB free webspace. No page limit. Full SEO customization. The Connect Domain plan offers a relatively cheap entry-level at ₹80 per month, which allows you to use your own domain name (ad-supported). Unfortunately, it’s not available in all geographies anymore.
Where they should improve: the Wix ad is very visible and should not be sticky. Also, the free URL is too long and not easy to remember, unfortunately.
How to Create a free website that grows with your business.
Weebly is one of the largest site creators out there and hits the top spots in our ranking table. But since we are mainly looking at the free plans here, we have to judge our contestant with slightly different criteria. The free plan is where Weebly doesn’t shine quite as bright, mainly due to the very visible ad in the website’s footer that even sports a mouseover effect.
In general though, it’s a very decent product, which offers great usability. There’s even an App Center with additional features. Paid plans start at $6 per month.
The URL you will get for free: customname.weebly.com
What we liked: their responsive themes and the app center with third-party add-ons. Also, there’s 500MB of free webspace. No limit on pages. SEO settings can be edited for all pages.
Where they should improve: the only downside is the very visible footer ad. Oh, and the cookie notice they show is just as annoying there is no way to switch it off (also it interferes with Google Analytics visitor tracking).
How to Create a free website with site123 :-
Site123 claims to be “by far” the easiest website builder, and while their tool is certainly not too difficult to use, we’d say that there are even more user-friendly ones. What’s great about their builder is that they have some pretty good looking themes that are all responsive. Paid plans start at $9.80 per month and include a basic ecommerce store as well as an email marketing tool. Be prepared to receive multiple daily emails after signing up. Free websites show a little banner stripe at the bottom of the page.
The URL you will get for free: accountname.site123.me
What we liked: It lets you create a one-page or multi-page website. There is a good choice of plugins and we found it easy enough to work with Site123. Their templates are responsive and the site includes SSL. Oh, and you have full access to the SEO settings!
Where they should improve: we aren’t big fans of the editor. You change the content in a separate window, which is not really state of the art. To achieve even basic things you always need a lot of clicks. Also, the templates are pretty restrictive with what you can add.
