Web Design: Other Free Website Tools

Which Tools Should I Use?

There are many free website building tools out there (take a look at Wikipedia's comparison chart for a few examples). This guide accompanies a workshop where we talk about a few of the newest and most popular options. Any of these tools can help you to create a great site with little or no website building experience. This guide attempts to give you a taste for each, so you can use the tool that works best for you.

For each of these tools, we will try to answer the questions:

  • Can I use my own URL?
  • What can I get from the free version? Will there be ads on my site?
  • Can I choose my own colors and fonts?
  • How much code do I need to know?
  • Can I add professional features like a photo galleries and image sliders?
