A guide to free website makers

Without a website, an online business cannot operate. A website gives an identity to a business. Had not it been so, website like eBay, Amazon and Facebook would not be popular and profitable. How to get your own website? Contrary to popular notion, making your own website does not require technical expertise. Below, you will learn how to build a website.

Building a website

What is a website? A website is a collection of web pages with images, content and other elements, hosted on a server. Hosting websites offer you space to host your website. You require a domain to make your own website.

Technology

Once you have purchased the domain and space, you would have to decide which technology to use for making the website - ASP or PHP. Both these web development technologies are powerful. For a simple website, you do not have to worry about the choice of technology. However, if you want to build an e-commerce or any data-driven website, then you have to choose the right technology.

Content and images

Relevant content and images make a good website. You can either write the content on your own, or hire a content developer for this. A website designer can work with you to put impressive images on the website. Website builders or web development companies? You can make your own website either by using the services of a web development company such as SmartGreyCells (Smartgreycells.com) or implementing an automated website builder. Both have their advantages. While a website development company offers you customised features and 24/7 support, an automated website maker allows you to make unlimited number of websites on your own.

Free website makers

Free website builders such as Webs (Webs.com) and Weebly (Weebly.com) help you to build a site free of cost. Using these tools, you can create a basic website in less time. However, you do not have the freedom to add interactive features such as chat rooms. Moreover, free website makers are not search-engine-friendly. Finally, you do not get personalised email address when you make a website using a free website builder. A web development company like SmartGreyCells (Smartgreycells.com), on the other hand, helps you to develop professional websites that are search-engine-friendly.
