When it comes to building a website these days, things are easier than ever. There are a whole host of free website builders out there, all of which allow you to build websites with ease and simplicity. These have been around for quite a while but now, you can get more than ever from these free website builders as there is just so much competition. Here are 10 of the best free website builders of 2012.
#1 – Wix
Wix is a free website builder that is used by millions of people all around the world and is extremely popular. With this site, you can get 500mb storage and bandwidth, analytics and more. Yes, there are a few ads on your site but it is worth it.
#2 – Weebly
Yet another free website builder that has been around quite a while now and certainly one of the best too. Weebly allows you to drag and drop everything you want exactly where you want it which is what makes it so easy to use.
#3 – Webs.com
Webs.com is one of the leading free website builders around and it was formerly called Freewebs.com many years ago. This website has a number of professional looking templates to allow you to get a site together in minutes.
#4 – WebStarts
WebStarts allows you to create a free 5 page website that will also have 10bm web storage and 5gb per month bandwidth. The overall look of the sites is good and they are currently responsible for over a million free websites.
#5 – Google Sites
Google has their own free website building in the form of Google Sites. The cool thing about this is that people can actually work together on one website and use other Google applications to add content.
#6 – Jimdo
Jimdo is definitely one of the best free website builders out there as it is extremely easy to use and you can also create blogs, ecommerce websites and much more. You can integrate Facebook, twitter and other social networking sites too.
#7 – Tumblr
Ok, it has to be mentioned. It might have been around for a while now, but Tumblr is definitely one of the best options for creating a free website. Sure, its a blog, but most websites act as blogs these days anyway.
#8 – Moonfruit
Moonfruit is another personal favourite of ours as the designs are just so good. The free package allows you to have one website with a maximum of 15 pages and 20 Mb of storage. There are a few ads but you also get a mobile optimised version of your site.
#9 – Jigsy
Jigsy is a fantastic free website builder that is catered towards small businesses, bands and much more. There are more than 175 themes for you to choose from and it is a completely hosted solution too. Definitely a contender for a free website.
#10 – WordPress
Again ,it had to be mentioned. WordPress is probably one of the most powerful free website builders out there and it is catered to those with little web knowledge too. WordPress allows you to create fully fledged websites in just minutes.
