  1. Hay quá, tự thiết kế cho mình một website, tôi cũng thử làm website.

  2. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about Website Builders. Regards

  3. This free website builders are great. But over the years, they dn’t offer only free service but also customer support. Beautiful Life, you guys rock!

  4. Imran Khna

    Nice List

  5. Matt

    Thanks for this review. Currently I’m looking for proper website builder and your list will be very useful for me.

  6. DamienIMS

    I prefer to use Wix. It is the best free website builder I tried.

  7. Booomer

    Thank you for review. It’s really good but I would limit by 3 web builders – wix, weebly and jimdo. The rest website builders from this list are obviously weak comparing to these three.

  8. Builders Expert

    The best free website builder is wix. No one website builder has such beautiful website designs as wix. And customization is very easy. Of course, it would be better not to have ads, but I think you can live with it – it’s free web builder. If ads on your website is unacceptable for you – you can always switch it off but in this case builder won’t be free ))

    • Yes Wix to me is by far the best website builder out of all the site builders on this page. And like you say for a small monthly payment you can upgrade and get more tools and no ads.

  9. ahmeth

    Lifeyo is relatively new to this market, but Weebly has been around for a number of years already. They now boast more than 11 million users, or about 10% of the internet’s websites are created through their platform.

  10. These sites serve a purpose if you are looking to build a “shed” type of website. But if you are wanting an actual website for your company or business then you need to turn to a professional web designer.
    And NO, not all professionals are going to charge you an arm and a leg to design a site. Good professional web designers can work within your budget to meet your needs.

  11. I came across this page looking for FREE website building sites, as I dare say most, if not all others did that landed here. If I’d have wanted professionally built site and had the budget to go with it, I would have searched for ‘Website building company’ Your comments are a futile attempt to make professional website builders seen value for money, but they are not FREE are they?? thanks admin

    • To whom you wrote this comment? If to the admin of the blog – we have no relationship to the comments on this post. And now about free website builders – all website builders from this list are absolutely free. Try it and see for yourself. Perhaps functionality and features of some free web builders will seem inadequate – but this is a subjective opinion of your. In fact, these builders are free, your thoughts about their professionalism don’t have any relation to the subject of this post.

  12. Using one of these sites would be the same as wanting to build a new house and you find someone that has a do-it-yourself kit and you buy the kit but by the time you get done putting it together all you have a is a garden shed. It provides a roof over your head but that is about it.

  13. arislan shaji

    thanks this was very helpful especially webs

  14. Thanks for this list of website builders . I think the best one is Wix .

  15. Ben Richardson

    Puzl.com is also a great DIY tool to create a professional website with.

  16. Erwan

    Also Easyweb7.com. Good stuff !!:-)

  17. Péter Patrik

    U forgot uCoz

  18. I don’t like free web builder services,I build self-hosted website by WordPress.

  19. Mary Klarks

    I used Puzl.com. It is an amazing platform to build a website if you are lacking coding experience and you need a professional cutting cost website. Puzl is a free one and offers great selection of business templates and a number of widgets to help you build a fully personalized website. I cherished excellent results building mine Puzl site.

    • martin

      Hello Mary, what is the advantage if you can not integrate coding? I mean´, I agree it is nice to have drag and drop but you still need coding interface to copy and paste code snippets like Adsense, PayPal, Facebook like boxes and much more, don’t you think so.

  20. Luffy

    Hey, That’s a cool builders list you have here. but the preview images are not loading i have to click and view the site.

  21. I used Wix, very good, others not. Thanks for the clarification, the article is useful

  22. Larry

    it’s not on the list, but a great option for building websites is also IMcreator.com. i built my website with it and i have no programming knowledge. it based on a very simple drag&drop system that allows you easily design. i managed to complete my website in a few hours and surprisingly, it came out great. of course it’s free of charge.

  23. connie

    There is so much information here, its just great. I have used Dreamweaver for developing a website which can be difficult and very time consuming and now I see there are all these sites with ready made templates … It all looks so easy, why would anybody bother to use software like Dreamweaver? I have tried Wix.com and although theyre are 100s of beautiful templates I couldnt use the editor , I had awful problems selecting and deselecting the items I wanted to edit? Anybody know why? But what I really am looking for is an easy builder for an ecommerce site with about 120 items in Ireland? Any advice would be most helpful? Connie

  24. really don’t think that someone should use them.

  25. Webs was easy to use, setup and gave me some extra help with finding new members and improving my seo. Multiple sites a breeze! thanks Webs.com

  26. Has anyone mentioned Serif WebPlus Starter? It is a free program and very powerful especially for being free. For more advanced features you can upgrade at any time to their latest release. At the time of writing this their latest version is Serif Webplus X6. I built my website on it and just wouldn’t recommend anything else.

  27. Weebly is another great free website builder, and with this referral code you will start off with $10 towards getting more features, although the basic features are great for a free website!

  28. Brilliant blog! I genuinely love how it is easy on my eyes and also the facts are well written. I am wondering how I may be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which ought to do the trick! Have a nice day!

  29. BEN

    Does anyone know of a free website builder with a cpanel and allows a Remote MySQL?

  30. Ferero

    WEBNODE – good builder. if you try, you can get a decent result.

  31. wangliying

    So great! Thank u very much!

  32. These are all great options and a good starting point for people who have no clue how to start a website. The downside is that some of them are so laden with ads, it can be pretty annoying.

  33. Jay Makwana

    Is it possible to create a free website having responsive design? does any website builder offer it?

  34. Its good for that’s type of people who want to be website builders. I already visit your website really its a helpful for me.

  35. cool. i need. thanks author.

  36. Chris

    Yola has just changed their free site to a limit of three pages, which makes them totally impractical. I would have rated them 10 (strong customer support) but this limit makes their service almost useless for free users.

  37. I found this web page as a most excellent web site for most recent updates. thank you for sharing great post.

  38. Wix may look cool, but the SEO sucks!

  39. David Daniel

    uh- weebly and google sites are both better then any of those!

  40. plan cul

    So nice thanks ! Love it !

  41. Thanks for putting together such a great list! When in a pinch a free solution that works is sometimes necessary.

  42. Barry Lycka

    I myself is a blogger for more then 5 years now and I am very excited to say that there are a lot of free websites available now a days that we could utilize. This list of website builders is quite good and informative.

    Thanks for this one buddy, I might sort these out and choose another site to start on with my new blog.

  43. taylor

    i have used wix before this but the domain link does not work it takes you to another page

  44. Agree great web designs. Weebly is best of them. Just relaunching ours, so hopefully it will make it on one of these lists. Thanks. Martin

  45. drew

    None of these websites are free of any charge

  46. I think webstats is so good.Thank for sharing. Cool collection!@

  47. It is in reality a great and helpful websites. I’m happy that you shared this useful information with us. Please stay us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.

  48. I always believed that if you go for a free website the quality will not be good but these website builders definitely provide you with quality designs and great themes. Thank you for the list of top 15 builders as it is a real help.

  49. Greenleaf

    no, no…if you want your website to work on ALL devices, switch seamlessly between Flash and HTML, do anything you want, use http://www.cubender.com. Thse guys the only ones with a product this advanced.

  50. Great serice, I have build some sites with jimdo ang yola. In fact they are not free at all, of course, there is no free thing on the world

  51. Gee

    Hi! This is such an informative post. I’m currently using wordpress and would love to try wix. :-)

  52. Wow, cool list of website builder service.

    I prefer Wopop and Tripop, the best for me.

  53. AMS

    I created a very complex website using wix (free)
    Wix is simply the greatest website maker there is.
    1. Not many ads (unless you “ad”(get it) them)
    2. unlimited pages
    3. good flexibility, uniqueness, range
    4. Plenty of storage and bandwith
    5. You can get more storage simply by adding a free master page!!!
    6. Free Unlimited Backgrounds, complex color options, buttons html, and more to make your site cute.

    GTG! My sister wants to play MovieStarPlanet. Check out my site and make your own on wix. See ya!!!

    Email Me: amscompany1000@gmail.com

  54. Thank for the post. I think the future is web builders. Website templates aren’t so popular and themes are usually used by webmasters which are familar with HTML and web desing. That’s why every year there are a lot of people think about website builders. I think it’s the same great invention in IT industry as Henry Ford’s conveyor in car world.

  55. Andrew

    Weebly is great but i think they offer too small storage for free account but Wix offered 500 gb that i am really convinced
    too also webs.com is great but just like weebly it is offering small storage

    • Abe

      500 gb?
      i think someone’s mixed up gigabytes with megabytes!
      if your talking about bandwidth, the most you’ll get is a hundred and the most web storage you’ll get is 10 gigabytes but those websites take 5 days to be active and you have to code them yourself,

  56. Such an incredible web design inspiration you have share here. I must say thanks for this remarkable stuff.

  57. Every body must try Webnode! :)

    • yep. i utilize MULTIPLE biz pages for Web.com it is OK but not all that and should’ve just LEFT it as it was easy web maintaining,

      and i utilize yep WEBNODE I LOVE IT SO FAR NO COMPLAINT
      EASY,RIGHT O THE POINT. AND I LOVE IT, SO MUCH AND ALSO 1 MORE RECENTLY THIS MONTH CALLED ENDICY i think, easy
      as pie, love it,and look SO GREAT!

      good luck to all webmasters, like me doing biz online better adding more website page(s)etc. with these free pg

      no need 2 really pay but for web.com that is it,and even then i am think kin bout leaving them why pay 200 ever few months for them when i have 10 other sites,web pgd.
      etc. may just use them for the good SEO they have help me with that bring much biz in,but WEEBLY over all is my # 1 source of biz comin in,and i m still free wit them!

      for now i might give em my paid biz soon though well worth it at weebly

  58. Ariel

    If I publish my website can I still edit it later if I want?

  59. Ayhan

    Thanks for information… I just need it…

  60. jake

    beware the web you weave

    i’ve been checking out free website builders. there are several good ones so far. i have a site on weebly which ive found to be very good. all but one deleted my website when i finished evaluating, but i could not delete my Webs.com website. The Delete link didn’t work and they have failed to respond to repeated emails to delete the site. i chose to delete their website because it was difficult to use their program and support was lacking at the free level. i suggest avoiding Webs.com.

  61. Susan

    Weebly could also be on this list!

  62. Thanks for useful info!

  63. this is a very good information and wix is a nice yar

  64. A.B.M.S. Doulah

    Most of these “Free Website Builders” are followed by some kind of subscriptions. Can somebody help me by giving me the addresses of truly free “Free Website Builders”?

    • drew

      I get your point, I’ve tried a bunch of websites, including Yola, Webstarts,Weebly, etc., but to get all features, you have to pocket out money

  65. Stickman

    Why aren’t listed the best? People got their own standards so what I mean by best is that the most used by most of the people. Where’s wordpress and weebly? wix is good but its pretty much more complicated than weebly, these listed websites aren’t that so good for creating a professional like website unlike weebly everything is easy , I already tried most of these but none of them is good if you ask me

  66. Dont forget EXAI website builder.. probably the best damn website builder in the world today

  67. Paritosh

    It was Truely helpfull !! Search for the best free web builder stops here..thanks for the info..!

  68. great collection. rich in features

  69. parsa

    i fink weebly is better than all

  70. keya roy ghosh

    very helpful.Thanks a million.

  71. Gilbert

    OK everyone, good stuff, but I am new to this and I want to start a service-oriented business. With this focus, which web-system is best for me? I want a serene/soft/soothing feel to the website and it needs to appear ultra professional.

  72. Andrew

    Great post. A friend of mine uses a website builder called Webcard. It’s really easy to use and they had a bespoke design. You can view their website at http://www.lovewebcard.com. Check out there tutorial videos to see how easy it is!

  73. yola and breezi are simply the best for me

    • I think they are, I enjoy using jux though because it looks cooler than any of those sites mentioned. You should try it. :)

      I am actually looking for free services for to make an ecommerce site but I haven’t got any yet that can blow my mind. For shopping cart support, I guess izzonet is the best.

  74. y8

    I really don’t think that someone should use them.

  75. Ken

    Honestly, I’ve tried all website builders above. The best one that I’ve currently used is uCoz.

  76. Andreea

    I think we should also mention http://www.ucoz.com, which offers FTP, unlimited traffic & space, domain attachment and so on. Mentioned those as, the majority of the website builders I used didn’t offered those features in the free plans. I find it easy to use and would put it somewhere between a Website Builder and an advanced CMS. As a web-developer I highly recommend it!

  77. 外国的东西真的太多都值得我们学习呀!

  79. Great collection right there, wix really has an amazing backend within their product. Love the drag n drop function there

  80. Dvaughn

    in which of them support advertisement for making maoney :D

  81. jingo

    yola and breezi are simply the best for me

  82. Byen

    Great line up of website builders. I think two other free website builders that deserve mentions here are Weebly.com and also Lifeyo.com. Lifeyo is relatively new to this market, but Weebly has been around for a number of years already. They now boast more than 11 million users, or about 10% of the internet’s websites are created through their platform.

  83. Definitely also take a look at Breezi too (just launched!) – In a nutshell, Breezi is a website editor with ultra fine controls. You can easily create, style, and add content to get your website just the way you’d like, down to the pixel level. We made Breezi for creatives who are picky about design aesthetics, but don’t want to learn coding to see their ideas come to fruition.

    You can sign up for a 30-day trial here (breezi.com), check it out and see what you think!

      I tried it. Frustrating. I left!

  84. Raphael

    Tripod now has over 200 templates.. not 150.. just saying :)

  85. Evelyn

    What about Jux? It’s easy and it looks beautiful!

  86. Using one of these sites would be the same as wanting to build a new house and you find someone that has a do-it-yourself kit and you buy the kit but by the time you get done putting it together all you have a is a garden shed. It provides a roof over your head but that is about it.

    These sites serve a purpose if you are looking to build a “shed” type of website. But if you are wanting an actual website for your company or business then you need to turn to a professional web designer.

    And NO, not all professionals are going to charge you an arm and a leg to design a site. Good professional web designers can work within your budget to meet your needs.

    • keya roy ghosh

      I need to set up three websites to cover three activities of mine teaching and couselling, legal assistance, art gallery. Could you please advise me as I am not tech-savvy and work from home.

  87. I really don’t think that someone should use them.

    • Tino

      Why? Can you offer something better?
      My friends have websites from Wix and they’re happy with it. For ordinary users these companies are godsend.

      • Well if we talk about blogs these sites are ok, but if about web sites in general – buy your own domain and use WP + theme you like :)

        • Tino

          Many people don’t know what is domain name and WP as well. I mean ordinary people that aren’t related to web design and web development. And not all of them have opportunity to pay a lot of money to some web agency for a website with its own CMS, domain name and hosting. For such people, web builders are exactly that they need. And it’s not too expensive and everything is clear.

      • parsa

        i know but when you add an page in wix its hard

  88. Weebly is best of all of them.

  89. Sonic

    Cool free web builder services!! thanks for sharing.
