  • I'm in the process of building number 5... I only use free sites to build them through. I prefer Yola because it gives you more room, but webs.com has more features... Both are very easy to do.

  • MANY! Both for fun and for profit. I typically write all my code from scratch. What type of site and customizability do you have in mind?

  • I am doing my website now. I use Vistaprint. It is free for the first month and then it is any where from $4.99-$19.99 a month depending on which plan you select. It is very easy to do, they have several hundred templates and if you can use Microsoft Word then you should be familiar with their program design toolbar.

  • My SO has built multiple websites, and has used free sites as well as sites that charge. He said the best one he has come across that is free is webs.com, it is the most efficient and easy to use site, and the appearance of your built website doesn't appear to look "free, or cheaply built".

  • I use to use yola, but it lagged really bad for photos.. (Which is what my site is all about.) So Now I use weebly. its free (of course you can upgrade for a price.) But I love it alot.

    www.kathleendormanphotography.weebly.com ((Hopefully soon I can get the money to go to .com))

    Weebly can be used for just about anything.
