Building a web site can be difficult. Very difficult. Creating an easy to use, well designed, practical, and affordable web site is seemingly impossible. One option is to spend thousands of dollars on a professionally designed site that is responsive, mobile friendly, modern, and easy on the eyes. For most of us it’s just not practical to spend that much on a website. That’s where Weebly comes in. Weebly gives you the power to create a professional looking and feature rich website for free.
What is Weebly?
Weebly is a responsive drag and drop site builder that was created with the end user in mind. Whether you’re an experienced Internet navigator or you’re just getting setup on the web for the first time, Weebly is for you. The entire platform was built around the idea that it shouldn’t be expensive or difficult to build a modern website. But don’t think that simplicity comes with a lack of features or advanced options. Weebly is incredibly robust and can accommodate even the most experienced users, designers, and developers.
Weebly has a number of key features:
- Drag and Drop editor. No coding, HTML, CSS or PHP knowledge necessary. Line up your images, text, and everything else right where you want it
- Choose from one of over 25 free themes or upload your own custom theme
- Unlimited subpages so you’ll never run out of places for your content
- Embed images, contact forms, even Youtube videos with the click of a single button
- Built-in SEO optimizer. Get your site at the top of search engines with keywords, meta tags, and Google analytics integration
- Add links to your Facebook Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn pages
- See how your site looks on the desktop or on the phone with a quick preview mode for both platforms
- Generate and email an entire site backup with a single click
All of those features are 100% free with the basic Weebly package. Upgrade to a paid plan and get access to even more features:
- Expanded stats about your traffic, visitors, and site behavior
- Create a members list/group so your visitors can sign up for a mailing list
- Integrated site search and indexing for easy navigation
- E-Commerce! Setup a cart, manage your products, create coupons, integrate your checkout merchants (Paypal, Stripe, Square, Authorize.net)
We can’t even begin to cover all of the features offered on the Weebly platform. Suffice it to say if you need something done to your site then Weebly has a way to do it. Whether you’re a blogger, hobbyist, small business, or something in-between you’ll have no trouble creating the perfect site for your visitors.

If you’re paying for hosting, I’d definitely recommend going with something like WordPress or Joomla over Weebly… Weebly is usually something you use when you want to make a site for free, no? Although it’s been a long time since I’ve used it, so maybe it’s improved since then.
