The reality is that companies are not going to be in a hurry to give anything away for free. Most services seem pretty consistent across all free website builders. They all offer free subdomains although some tend to be too long to be of any use, free web hosting and access to free templates. The differences lie in how limited the services can get when you’re on a free account. With a little bit of creativity, however, it is still possible to build a functional website on the best free website builder.
Before we go deeper into the best website builder software that can help you create stunning websites for free, here are a few guidelines for choosing the right platform for your next website project.
Do not be fooled by ‘unlimited bandwidth’ offers on free accounts. The company may not have a hard limit but will most likely impose one if they find your free website is using up so much resource.
Free domain names do not exist so you will be hard-pressed to find a free website builder that can offer such. Some website builders may offer a free domain name as part of an annual plan but that’s as close as you can get to getting one.
SEO reputation is tied to your website’s domain so if you start with a free subdomain and eventually move to your own custom domain, you are at risk of losing any SEO reputation you have built on the former unless you can do redirects.
With that said, read on to find out who made it to this year’s list of the best website builder software and platforms.
