The only free website builder that doesn't have a billion watermarks.

If you're into website development, you definitely know about Webs, Weebly, Wix, and all the other website builders that, not only all start with "W" for no apparent reason, but also cover every single page with ads for themselves, usually ads that will actually come up and cover content, and always be shown. While there are ways to remove these ads (either by paying stupid amounts of money or installing 3rd-party scripts), it's just not convenient.

A while ago, Tweakly discovered a way to build a free website without all that crap covering your page, and today I'd like to share it with you. It's a little webapp called Zoho Sites. Zoho are well-known for, among other things, their CRM services, simple invoice tools, and easy-to-use webmail (they're responsible for our @tweakly.net emails)

So, let's get started and build your website!

The first thing you'll want to do is head over to zoho.com/sites and create a Zoho account. Once you've signed up, visit sites.zoho.com and login to your account. If you're not taken to your site list, be sure to find a link that says "My Sites" or something similar.

Step 1: Click the Create a Site button in your site list

Step 2: Select a template you like - we'll be using our default Tweakly one.

OPTIONAL: There will be a tiny ad on your page, and it'd be nice to leave it there since it's not too big or intrusive. However, if you do want to go on a witch hunt and remove every single piece of branding, scroll to the bottom of your page and click the Share to Remove Zoho Ad link.

Click one of the buttons to share on Facebook or Twitter (you don't actually have to share, just close the popup window) and then you're done! Enjoy building your website and leave a link to us in the comments below this post so we can share and enjoy your work!
