A free domain name is included in the JimdoPro plan, which costs $90/year (and includes additional features).

Why Use Jimdo?

Jimdo uses a hybrid drag and drop editor - you can move text and images around, but you must stay within the confines of the template.

Jimdo can automatically create a mobile version of your site, if you check the box to activate mobile view (checked by default).

How Can I Customize a Jimdo Site?

How much code do I need to know?

None, but: you can actually build your entire page using an HTML editor, if you want to. You can also add code to the <head> tag of your website, which is a unique feature among these tools.

Can I choose my own colors and fonts?

Yes, but: the amount of customizability you have depends on which layout you choose. You will be able to choose from eight fonts, and you cannot add any more.

Can I add professional features like a photo galleries and image sliders?

Jimdo allows for outside code, so you could create these features in a third party application and paste them into Jimdo. While there are some apps like Twitter integrated, there are fewer built-in fancy features.
