Few years back, I had this belief that to create a website is one of the most difficult and costly ventures a small business owner could ever undertake. 

The truth is, I wanted to own one so badly, but fear stopped me because I didn’t have the capital to finance a proper web design project. (see 13 urgent reasons why your business needs a website)

Little did I know that to create a website is as easy as creating a Facebook account. Actually it is a fun activity to carry out.

You don’t need to spend a dime.

You don’t even need a any specialized web design skills.

In fact, I dare to say that if you know how to use Microsoft word, then you know how to design a website.

It’s just as simple as ABCD…

To me it’s a free gift from tech people.

So if you have been scared like me to create a website of your own, follow me, and I will show you the best web design platforms you can use to create a stunning, beautiful website

Here are 5 free web design platforms that even a novice (like you) can use to create a website within minutes.

Important Note: If you need a complex website or bespoke design with unique features plus large storage space and bandwidth, these platforms will be grossly inadequate.

What you need to do is hire a proper web design company with verifiable track record (see tips on how to detect a good web design company in Nigeria. This article can save you tons of headaches in future).

  1. WordPress

This is by far the most popular of all free web design platforms online today. More than 59% of all websites on the internet are built with WordPress.

For websites that are prone to constant changes, record keeping, blogs and also online stores, WordPress is the ideal recommended web design platform.

To create a website with WordPress doesn’t cost you anything. It’s an open source platform. It is as free as opening a Facebook or email account.

However, whether you’re creating a static site, or a blog-style site with regularly updated content, WordPress allows you to create an impressive, professional-looking site.

The good news is that you can actually create any kind of website you want without touching a line of code.

Another interesting feature of this free web design platform is that it is specially designed for use in creating 100% search engine friendly websites.

Just like Weebly, Wix also provides 500MB flexible storage space and to 1G bandwidth, built-in Google Analytics and quality support.

This concept of flexibility makes Wix one of the best free web design platforms for non-techies who desire to create a website for themselves.

    I’m definitely a big advocate for WordPress. But to be fair, if you want to REALLY benefit from WordPress and its powerful capabilities, you will have to shell out money for it, so I guess it has its pros and cons as a web design platform overall.
