Designing and creating a website doesn’t have to be hard. While you may believe that creating a site is complicated and you need to know languages like HTML or CSS, this isn’t true at all. There are many programs and tools available that enable you to create a site very quickly, even if you are a total beginner. Let’s take a look at some of the easiest website builders available.
If you are looking for the easiest possible way to create a site, Wix is it. This site builder and hosting service allows you to build a website in as little as an hour, even if you have never done it before.
Its website builder has been designed to make things as simple and intuitive as possible and it has a built-in tutorial that shows you step-by-step how to build your site. You can easily add images, videos, create links and change your site’s entire design.
Wix’s basic package is free to use, but if you want to create a commercial site you really should upgrade to a paid account (which removes ads from your pages) and buy your own domain name as well.
Overall, Wix is a great solution for those who want to build a small, simple site and don’t want to spend time learning slightly more complex site builders like WordPress.
WordPress is a hugely popular blog/website building tool that is slightly more complex than Wix. You can use WordPress either as a self-hosted solution, meaning you host it on a paid host’s server, or you can use WordPress.com a hosting service that comes with WordPress pre-installed. WordPress.com uses a slightly more limited version of WordPress and is a bit easier to learn. If you are just getting started WordPress.com is the fastest and easiest option.
WordPress is an excellent tool to use for large sites that are updated on a regular basis. It was originally created as a blogging platform, however nowadays you can use it for just about any site you can think of, even ecommerce sites. The main thing that makes it so popular is the huge variety of plugins and themes that are available for you to use. These make it easy for you to not only give your site a professional appearance, but add lots of nice features to it such as integration with social media, photo galleries, shopping carts and more.
The downside to all of these features, however is that it can take you a while before you know how to use WordPress. However, if you take the time to look at a few tutorials, you should figure things out fairly quickly.
WordPress is a very powerful tool for those who want to build a large site that is updated a lot. It is slightly more complex than other easy site builders, but learning how to use it is well worth the effort.
Webflow is a powerful site builder and hosting service that allows you to create a website without needing to know how to code. Like WordPress, it is a bit more complex than Wix, but it offers a lot more powerful features that give you full control over the look of your site. It uses an intuitive drag and drop interface that makes building a website very fast.
It comes with its own custom CMS (Content Management System), which makes it very easy to add and edit content to your site. Unlike some other easy website builders it generates very clean code that doesn’t affect your site’s loading speeds. If you are serious about your website and want the best possible option without having to code everything by hand, then Webflow is probably the best option available.
As you can see, there are many great tools available that enable you to create a website even if you are a total beginner. Which one you should use will depend on several factors, including the type of site you want to build and the time you want to invest in learning to use a site builder.
