How To Make a Website For Free

How to make your own website or how to make a website for free are questions that get asked all the time. Should you hire a professional or do it yourself?

If you want to make a good, functional and mobile-friendly website, you will need to pick a platform for creating websites, also known as CMS (Content Management System). 

What is CMS?

Back in the years, when websites became popular, most sites were built using HTML (code), CSS or sometimes Flash (not used anymore). All of them have a long and difficult learning curve, allowing only those who have mastered them to be able to create a website. 

This is why most of the people still think that making a website from scratch is really difficult and requires a lot of time, effort, money and design and coding skills. But things have changed. Today the CMS has changed the game, making it easy for everyone to create a website. 

More simple, a CMS is a user-friendly platform for making a website and managing your own content, without using coding.  

The Process Of Making a Website For Free

For most of the small and medium businesses the cost for a developer or a designer might be an issue and want to stick to a budget. Hiring a professional to build your website can have expenses spiraling out of proportion and end up costing $1000's.
