22 Jun Best Places To Create a Free Website
Getting a website set up for your business can be a costly matter. There are plenty of web developers to choose from, but is there a cheap (or free) way of getting a website set up?
Yes There Is
If you do a simple Google search asking how to make a free website, you’ll come across a few different platforms that allow you to create a website yourself. Some of these platforms are Wix, WordPress and Weebly. They all start with a ‘W’ don’t they?
So which is the best one to use? If you are looking for something that is completely easy to use, go for Wix. It’s drag-and-drop system makes setting up a website really easy. As with most free things, you don’t get the whole kit and kaboodle that you would if you paid for it. A lot of these platforms will add their own advertising on your website unless you fork out a bit of cash.
At Live Link Websites we find WordPress is one of the more flexible platforms to create a website if you purchase your own hosting and domain name. It allows you to do heaps of things such as install paid or free themes, edit the code yourself and take advantage of thousands of plugins to help you do extra things.
Wix on the other hand can only be hosted on their own servers at a monthly cost. There’s not much to edit in terms of coding and it’s usually what you see is what you get in terms of customisation.
So Which is The Best Way to Create a Free Website?
It all depends on how much work you’re willing to put in and if you’re happy to have adverts running on your free website. If I were to recommend a platform based on ease-of-use I’d definitely say Wix is the way to go.
