One of the rare free website builders that lets you can connect your own domain name.
Their big limit is that free plans can only have one page per website. So you’ll be building more of a landing page.
Weebly is a great website builder. I recommend it for people who want something easy to use— it’s somehow manages to have have tons of features without being difficult to use.
The advertisement they include is wide but it's on the footer.
Strikingly was designed to be the best way to create one-page websites. If you want a one-page website just use Strikingly— nothing comes close.
Zoho Sites used to have the best free plan: it had no ads and you could connect a domain. Unfortunately neither are true anymore. It’s best feature is it’s really powerful form builder.
Jimdo is an okay website builder— though I find the templates are outdated.
When registering for DudaOne, I was asked whether I was a “web designer building a website for a client” or just “building a website for myself”. This question tells you that DudaOne was at least in part designed for professionals. Because of that it’s not as intuitive as some of the easier website builders (like Weebly).
Webstarts has a drag-and-drop interface similar to Wix. Basically it lets you drag elements anywhere on the page.
XPRS doesn’t put any advertisements on your website— which is fantastic. The downside is that the subdomain they give free websites is pretty much unusable. Unfortunately there is no way to edit it.
So if you do a bit of research, you find that WebsiteBuilder.com, SiteBuilder.com are actually the same product— just on different domain names. If you have any plans to upgrade in the future, avoid this company.
The big problem with Yola is that you have to upgrade in order for your website to be mobile-friendly. That means the free plan only shows the desktop version on mobile devices. It’s 2017. Having a website (even a free one!) that’s not mobile friendly is just not an option.
I like Wix. I don't like their free plan. They give you a really bad domain (see below). The random1028 part is randomly generated and added to your domain.
They also place two ads on your website.
