How to Create a Professional Website for Free

Creating a professional website doesn't have to be expensive or difficult. With the right tools and intentions, anyone can create a website for free, regardless of their technical skills, coding knowledge, or web design experience. There are many website builders that offer free plans, so you can create your own website with just a computer and a web browser. Weebly is Square's most limited and free website builder.

It's ideal for simple websites, such as a portfolio or blog, but you can't do things like sell online or easily connect it to your social media accounts. Wix is another popular website builder that comes with a Wix domain and allows you to instantly look more professional on the Internet. Jimdo offers an impressive ADI publisher product, Jimdo Dolphin, that essentially creates your website for you. We tested all of the website builders on this list and created demo websites so you can see the results for yourself.

The design process itself is much more limiting for the free plan, even if you're just trying to create an online presence. We recommend site plans for content-based websites or blogs because they give you creative freedom, but they don't allow much space for large amounts of traffic. It's very easy to set up, but if you want to be creative and push the limits of your site design, SITE123 isn't for you. Finally, we'll show you how to create a website at no cost with two of the most popular platforms. With the right intentions and effective tools, anyone can create a professional-looking website without any technical knowledge.
