The internet has become a vastly important part of people’s lives and the need for free and easy ways to create suitable websites has increased rapidly. However, it can be difficult to find a free website builder program, which matches both your needs and technical abilities. Here are three of the best.
With over 10,000,000 copies downloaded last year it is one of the most popular and easiest to use plus prior knowledge of web design, or even internet use, is not necessary. A great way to publish ideas quickly, WordPress is an excellent choice for blog websites, as modifications are not needed for the site to work perfectly.
Although it has been developed to work as a blog, the over 6,000 plugins, widgets and themes available (and most of them are free!) mean that it can be modified and developed to create a distinctive site that perfectly matches your requirements.
This is one of the easiest and most user friendly sites available, and it has the ability to satisfy everybody’s needs. It is easy enough to use that novices can navigate their way through the procedure, with very little trouble; it has enough free themes that anyone interested in the aesthetics of web design will be happy; and although some people may argue that it is not developer friendly, it has enough plug-ins and widgets, to keep even the most dedicated developer occupied.
This content management system is a more advanced, developer friendly website builder platform. For users that do not have the technical skills of a web developer, the numerous tags and functions, can prove difficult to navigate. However, for those with the ability, Drupal can offer a more challenging and enjoyable experience than other programs.
However, websites produced using Drupal, though technically advanced, are generally not as aesthetically pleasing as sites created using the numerous themes of WordPress.
Joomla is easy to use and provides a balance for designers and developers to get the most out of their site. For those who are interested in the visual characteristics of web design, then Joomla has the capabilities to create websites that are aesthetically pleasing, and, as well as design features, this system also has the customization facilities to satisfy those interested in the development aspect of the site.
However, there are drawbacks when compared to other systems. The development capacity, although impressive, is not as flexible as Drupal and, although relatively easy to use, when in a direct comparison with WordPress, Joomla does not match its counterpart as a user friendly option.
Whatever your needs, whether you want a simple, easy to use program like WordPress, or a developer friendly system like Drupal, you are sure to be able to find a free website builder program to suit your requirements.
