Setting up a website can be quick, easy and cheap. In this post, John Espirian shows you a step-by-step guide to getting started with Weebly.

The video that accompanies this post focuses on the ‘how’ but not the ‘why’. If you haven’t read the introductory post in this series, I’d suggest taking a look before following the steps in this video.

Key facts

Here’s a quick summary of what you can expect when setting up a website with Weebly.

  • It’s free to register via
  • You’ll get a free subdomain in the form
  • You can pay for a better domain name when you’re ready.
  • You can set up a standard (‘static’) website instead of a blog.
  • It’s easy to add images and contact forms.
  • The drag-and-drop interface is perfect for beginners.


I’ve found Weebly to be the easiest website-building service I’ve ever used, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone interested in setting up their own website. The drag-and-drop interface is extremely intuitive, making Weebly the ideal choice for technophobes.

It’s free to get your own site with Weebly, so why not give it a whirl?

    I’d agree that Weebly is straightforward to use, especially for the less technically gifted like me – I’m glad I took the time to do it. Now I need to learn about SEO!

    • Ah, SEO aka The Dark Arts. Well, I see you’ve made a good start and setting up your own blog is a great way to supercharge your ranking. And Weebly: I’m finding more and more people are using it, and it’s easy to see why. One of the simplest web setup routines I’ve ever seen.
