  • Web site help

    Morning all.

    I need a web site and have no idea where to start. Can someone help?? Please note I'm no way at all computer savvy when it comes to this so I need the easiest site builder possible. What ones can you guys recommend??
    Thanks all.

        I started out with Mr site, but found it a bit time consuming and had restrictions.
        I now use create and have no problems at all. Infact I have just put together a website for a freind on the same system.

          I definitely recommend Create. They also have a free 30 day trial so you can have a play around & see how everything works. It takes a little bit of getting used to what everything does but their help files are excellent & will walk you through every step of the way.

          I moved from Mr Site & I know there are lots and lots of Create users who did the same &, like me, haven't looked back! I actually got my site built & ready to go within the 30 day trial so I was ready to go once the time came to actually pay.

            I would recommend Weebly too so it looks as though you have a couple of options so far. What I like about Weebly is the drag and drop way you build it which is actually very flexible and as has been said before it's very intuitive. In total I've built 3 websites with Weebly and as a free service I think it's awesome. Once upon a time I was paying around £70 a year for a website where I couldn't even do half of what I can do with Weebly (I am in no way affiliated with them, I just love them!)

                  I prolonged mine for just over 3 months as I told them I wasn't ready to go live until my subscription had ended with my previous lot....they were great and told me to just let them know when I WAS ready...I subscribed well before my old one ran out in the end as the old lot were totally rubbish tbh...

                    Thanks all.
                    I've had a look at create and started the 30 day thing but I'm struggling to find my way round it???? I start building bits and bobs then I finish, save and then it's vanished, something I must be doing. Have emailed them so hopefully they'll help me out.
                    Thanks again.

                      I like Weebly. It was easy to add my domain name to it as well.
