According to us, WordPress.com is the best & easy free website builder available out there. One thing you should note that WordPress.com & WordPress.org is not the same. WordPress.org is an open source CMS (Content Management System) which is free to use but you need to buy hosting & domain for it. But on the other side, WordPress.com is a complete website builder in which you need to upgrade to various plans to use custom domains and use advanced features.
They provide good subdomains like yoursite.wordpress.com
The plans are quite expensive…but if you need to build a complete website without so many complexities & technical knowledge then you should go for it.
Wix is a powerful & popular website builder comparing to others. Pricing plans are also very simple & cheap. The free plan will show Ads on your website.
The subdomain will be yourusername.wixsite.com/yoursite (which is very annoying)
The Free Version has very limited features…so if you can upgrade later then only go with the Free plan of Wix.
Jimdo is also a good option for building websites. Thought their themes are outdated & the website editor is a little bit confusing. Also, they show fewer Ads at the footer (bottom of the website) which are okay.
They provide free subdomains like yoursite.jimdosite.com
You can upgrade to their paid plans (expensive though) to use custom domains & other advanced features like SEO, Premium Support, E-commerce, Unlimited Storage, Ad Free & many more…
Strikingly is also a great website builder which also has a Free plan. The free plan also includes E-commerce support for 1 product only. This website builder is famous for creating One Page Website.
Provides subdomain like this – yoursite.strikingly.com
The Free version is great for beginners & who wants to create a one-page website but it will show Ads on your website. Also, it will show “Powered by Strikingly” watermark throughout your website. They offer 5GB Bandwidth. Upgrade to their paid plans for more exciting & important features.
Weebly is the best free website builder according to us which provides E-commerce feature, Unlimited Bandwidth & supports many more integrations. It will show Ads also on your website. You can add multiple products & setup Paypal as a payment gateway provider.
The free subdomain will be yoursite.weebly.com
