How to build and publish your own free website

build a website

It is now possible to build, design and publish your very own website for free! It is extremely simple to do, but it does come with a few drawbacks. In most cases, all that is required is your time and your email address, and you’re good to go.

You can build your own free website through a few select website building platforms who offer a free version of their service. You can browse through an extremely diverse and impressive plethora of templates, taking design ideas and giving yourself a head-start whilst you’re at it! Then, you can use their own (usually) drag and drop editor, which is very fluid and natural, supporting every type of user from professional designers to absolute newbies. Lastly, publish it! You will normally be given a subdomain of the website builder’s website to publish to, which is not very professional but there is no harm in taking advantage of this in the early days, when getting your feet wet in the ocean that is website building.

Having to publish to a subdomain is not the only drawback, however. You will find that an upgraded version of the service will supply many more features like Search Engine Optimization (vital for any website looking to increase traffic) and analytics.

But, by all means, give it a go! You will be very surprised to see what you are capable of producing, and it might just be the best thing you’ve ever done
