How do you create a website quickly?

We’ll show you how to create your first free website in 5 minutes.

  1. Choose a free website builder
  2. Choose a design
  3. Push the button! (Go live)

The first step is always the hardest. You have this one idea and would like to implement it right away. But then something comes up: no time, no money, stress, too complicated, doubts and to top it all off, the mother-in-law’s birthday. The list is long. If you feel caught doing any of these things, take five minutes now and we’ll show you how to finally get your own website.

We assume that you don’t know how to code and you want a free website. You can always activate the paid functions later. So, time is running out!

Step 1: Choose a free website builder

Time required: 2 minutes

You can test all three providers free of charge for as long as you want. You don’t have a limited trial period. So you don’t need to worry about running out of time. So you will not suddenly be asked to checkout and your website will not be switched off.

You don’t have to worry about your domain name either. First of all, you get a free alibi domain (sub-domain). This means that you can first choose the name of your dog or your favorite food. If you later switch to a real domain (e.g. mywebsite.de), the visitors will only see this.

You also don’t need to worry that you will suddenly be found on Google. You can protect your site with a password . This means that the curious have no chance!

Jimdo – the fast (almost) all-rounder

There are two versions here: Jimdo Creator and Jimdo Dolphin . If you don’t need a blog and online shop, Jimdo Dolphin is the faster option. With the help of a chat bot, you will create a website in no time. The chat bot is smart enough to create a complete website from existing social media profiles such as Facebook and Instagram – of course you can do that without it!

This is how the registration works:

  1. Enter your email address
  2. choose a password

>>  Create a free site at Jimdo

Wix – perfect for portfolios

This provider is the first choice, especially for creative projects. The App Market is great here, as it allows you to choose from a variety of external functions. With these apps you can add booking functions ( Wix Bookings ), an event calendar and many other functions that can be seamlessly integrated into the design.

Weebly – website creation made easy

Particularly suitable for simple websites and blogs. The members area is interesting. Here you can give registered visitors access to exclusive areas and content. There is also an app store to easily expand your website with new functions.

Create a Weebly website in 5 minutes

This is how the registration works:

  1. Enter first name and last name
  2. Enter the email address that you are already using
  3. choose a password

>>  Create a free site at Weebly

Step 2: choose a design

Time required: 2.5 minutes

At Jimdo and Weebly, it’s easy for you. You can change the design at any time afterwards without losing your content. Unfortunately, Wix is ​​a special case. In principle, you can convert any design retrospectively, but it is not possible to try out the different variants with a click of the mouse.

It is just as practical that the mobile version can also be seen when choosing a design. A little tip: with Weebly you can push the browser window together to see the mobile version in real time.

Adjust colors, fonts and images when you have more time. First of all, it is important to choose a design that comes closest to your ideas.

Step 3: push the button!

Time required: 3.2.1 seconds

Put website live

And now?

Time required: as much as you want

Of course that was just the beginning, but we wanted to show you that it really is not difficult to put a website on the net. The real fun only begins now: think about the content and the structure. This applies to texts, images and design.

We explain how you can do this in our free e-book . Do this step-by-step. Remember: Rome wasn’t built in a day. You can find a lot more information about website creation in our blog .

If you are already wandering around and thinking of your mother-in-law’s birthday party or the dear children, we would only like to ask you for 30 seconds of your time:

If you are self-employed or on a freelance basis , it is really important to be present on the net with a suitable website. You may not even be aware of the jobs that are missing your feet just because they can’t find you on Google! Today it’s easier than ever to build your website – your competitors must already have one! Now is the best time to start!

And one last tip: with all three providers, you can tinker with your website while you are on the go. Jimdo’s editor also runs smoothly in the web browser, and Wix and Weebly even have their own app! Instead of waiting, you can try new ideas. You don’t have to shovel extra time and sit at your desk at home.

If you have a question, just leave us a comment. We are happy to hear from them.
