create a website for freeHaving a website is necessary if you want to sell a product or service, run an online business, non-profit organization, or online newspaper. But, maybe you just need a website for a one-time event, to keep your club or organization updated about upcoming meetings, to post information about a wedding, baby shower or family reunion and you really don’t want to buy a domain name or pay for monthly hosting.

Setting up and maintaining a website can be a pain because you often need to have basic knowledge of HTML, PHP, Javascript, Flash, CSS, or Photoshop. It can also be costly to run a website if you buy a domain name and have monthly hosting bills. This is okay if you are planning on maintaining a website for business or for a long-term project but why pay when you can get it for free?

It used to be that the only option for creating a free website was using a service that placed annoying ads at the top of every page and gave you limited design options. And to get a really good website you had to pay a designer and spend a lot for hosting. Today we have more free web design options and here are a couple you should check out.

[NO LONGER WORKS] Synthasite

synthasite review [NO LONGER WORKS] Synthasite allows you to create a website for free and there will be no annoying ads popping up on your site either. The website templates are so cool and professional with Synthasite that you could easily create a business website using their service. They have live examples from current users who have created business websites for free. You must be at least 18 years of age to use the Synthasite Toolset.

Synthasite offers a quick and easy Website Builder that requires NO technical skills or knowledge of HTML. Synthasite lets you create a website or a blog and it super simple to use. It offers drag and drop features which makes it even easier to use. I was able to easily change templates, color schemes, delete and add features within seconds.

The Synthasite setup allows you to drag items from a scrolled list that appears on the right of the screen. Drag to the left to position an item on the page. Click once on the item to edit it and a menu appears on the right of the screen again.

website builderWeebly allows you to create a free website or a free blog layout. With Weebly you add content elements such as videos, pictures, maps, and text to your website by simply dragging them from the Weebly bar to a webpage you created. Click on an item and a sub-toolbar area at the top with options for that item.

Just like Synasite you are given quite a lot of professional looking templates to choose from and they make it easy to change your design by using the icon toolbar at the top of the page. You can also add a photo gallery, files, videos, audio and forms to your website with the simple click and drag features.

A standard free Weebly account is allowed 2 websites per account. There is a file size of 5 MB on the free account and there is a “create a free website with Weebly” link placed on the bottom of each free account.

If you have your own graphics you can upload those as well to create an even more customized look for your blog or website.

Features of both services:

  • 100% FREE with no hidden fees
  • There are no ads and no banners popping up
  • You can customize your website layout and make your site unique
  • You get a free subdomain or free hosting for your own custom domain
  • There is nothing to download
  • It works right from your browser
  • Free tutorials, FAQs, and help

I tested both Synthasite and Weebly and setting up an account was quick and easy and only took a few minutes. The interface was easy to understand and there was a lot of help available when I got stuck.

Using a blank page template in Synthasite or Weebly is like opening a new document in a word processing program. Once you create a page you can add content by simply dragging and dropping a text box into the area of the screen you want it to show up on.

Have you found other good free website applications that make creating a website easy?

    This service seems to be no longer available. You should always check the "about" page to ensure it's a serious and responsible provider.

    Great Templates! It was such great inspiration, that I completely scrapped my original plan and started over again! I do believe the result will be a much better product.

    You can also use this site
    to get a Free Domain for your site if it already supported with custom domains

    De simpliest way to create a website is
    There you have many features, storage space and design templates and it's totally free.
    For people without programming skills but also suitable for professionals.

    for free hosting service, i would recommend It is free and has php, mysql, and ftp. They have website templates, builder, and fantastico installer. Even more, their bandwidth and space offering are very fantastic.

    For my money (ie none!) you can't beat Jimdo ( I've used it for a couple of years to set up temporary websites for student fieldtrips....there's no learning curve to speak of and plenty of features.

    I like

    * FTP account and File Manager
    * Control Panel and Automatic Script Installer
    * MySQL databases & PHP Support
    * Free tech support
    * Addon domain, Parked Domains, Sub-Domains
    * Free Community Access (Forums)
    * Clustered Servers
    * No ads!

    and already uploaded 1 click install CSM's like wordpress, etc.

    I'm still trying to figure out why it's free :)

      Its offered for free because it has an optional premium service that you pay for. Thats where they make the money.

      Thanks for the share

    Well, ByetHost is not as good as HyperPHP. While the first may be more colerful, they both have the same interface, VistaPanel. However, the latter comes with 15 gigs of MONTHLY bandwidth and 350mb of storage space. Also, in my experience, the community there is very helpful.

      Thanks For telling about HyperPHP! It's truly better than See what you can do with 350mb of storage and 15GB of monthly bandwith!

      Does HyperPHP put forced ads on your site (if so, what kind of?)? I don't find anything about this topic on its "Free Hosting Specification" page. Do you have an example of a freely hosted site at HyperPHP?

    Interesting review.

    I wonder if these providers support localization (i.e. allow web pages to use non-Latin character sets). Also it would be nice to know if they would host custom domains (e.g. instead of I think Synthasite does, but I'm not sure. Also, how do they handle templates: e.g. if I want to change something in the site's footer or header (or some other common element), would I do this in one place or would I need to go over each page?

    BTW, here are some sites that provide similar services: Sauropol, Edicy, Roxer, WebNode, Webs.

      Both of these sites allow custom domains. I am not sure how far you can go with the customization. That is why they are free because you get to use their "stuff" like templates, graphics, etc.

      But for people who don't understand how to design a site this is a great free option and for a business you could setup a nice looking site without having to pay a web designer (sorry fellow designers) and save yourself some money. This is great especially if you are a new business owner and don't have the money to invest.

    Yes, that is the hardest part...why do they offer it for free since there are no ads. Thanks for sharing I didn't know about that one and thanks for reading
