How to Create a Website Free of Cost?
Question: How to create a website free of cost?
Answer: Using a website builder
Looking to create a website, but don’t know where to start? Congratulations! You’ve come to the right place. On this website you’ll find everything you need to easily build a website from scratch, free or at an affordable price.
Here at SWB, we believe that online website builders are probably the best option for those who have no programming training, but want to get full control over the process of website creation. Site builders are easy-to-use, fast and affordable. These web services let you focus on what really matters – your product/business, doing all the heavy lifting for you.
Using a website builder is as simple as creating a social media account – just sign up, upload your content and start sharing.
Question: So, are these services free?
Answer: They are.
Most site builders use a ‘freemium’ (free+premium) business model, which means you can sign up and use a basic feature set free. Is it enough to build a decent website? Well, it depends on a site builder and what you mean by ‘a decent website’. In most cases, free users can’t use custom domains, add more than 5 or so pages, enable eCommerce and remove adverts that the builder places an all free websites.
To get rid of the ads, connect a custom domain and unlock more features, users have to upgrade their accounts.
In other words, technically, you can design and publish your website without spending a cent, but in reality, this website will either display a noticeable advert or will be placed on a subdomain.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to create your own website for free:
In my opinion, free plans should be taken as free trials, not real options. To create a professional looking website, you’ll HAVE to pay, sooner or later. The price can be as low as $3/mo, but you’ll still have to invest into your web presence. Paid packages remove adverts, let you connect your own domain and unlock more customization options.
Choose a website builder, which offers a free plan and suits you the best.
Register and pick a website template you like.
Create a structure of your website – think out, which pages you need and which you don’t need.
Fill in your pages with content. It’s stongly recommended to use unique text and images.
Make your website live – publish it.
