Could I Take A Weebly Website And Build It Elsewhere?

September 11 2016 · Steve Benjamins

Unfortunately this is no longer possible— Weebly used to allow users to download their entire website in a .zip so that users could host it on whatever host they wanted to. But that featured was removed several years ago.

The only website builder I know that currently allows you to build your website and move it to a new host is Zoho Sites. Though as you can see from my review, I don’t recommend that website builder.

If being able to move your website elsewhere is important to you, I’d recommend looking into a CMS such as Wordpress. Website builders are designed to be self-hosted solutions— they’re not meant to be moved from host to host. Things break and it’s technically not recommended. But a CMS like Wordpress is built to be moveable.
