In our previous blog, we talked about how to build a website for free. In this post, we explain how to build one without coding skills. Creating services online requires coding skills. However, for establishing a website, you don’t need to worry about having any coding skills. No-code website builders are here to help you.

In this post, we explain the term no-code website builder, how to start a website, steps to follow and introduce five no-code website builders.

What Is a No-Code Website Builder?

No-code website builders help people who lack coding skills build their websites. You can start from scratch or use their templates and customise them however you want.

They usually come with a drag and drop or block system. It means you bring a text or a visual to your design and place it wherever you want.

No-code website builders bring freedom to design and are easy to get started with. You don’t need to hire an agency or software developer at the early stage of your business.

How to Start Building A Website Without Coding?

  • Start by getting your domain name. There are various websites out there. You can check them to see the availability, price and purchase of your domain name.
  • Check the no-code website builders and plans, and find the most suitable one for you and your budget.
  • Start to design your website.
  • Setup necessary plugins such as Google Analytics and SEO tools.
  • For starting sales, learn about payment tools and their setup.
  • Make a test run. Check how it looks, iterate and test again.
  • When you think it’s ready, publish your website.

What Should You Look For in No-Code Website Builders Before You Choose One?

Price

Most no-code website builders require monthly subscriptions. Some of them come with free plans; however, they offer very limited features. They usually have various plans at different price ranges to meet your expectations. Before choosing one, you need to study them and find the most suitable one for your needs and budget.

Software

The majority of the no-code website builders are user-friendly. You need to check if it’s comfortable for you to use them. It may be a little complicated or require study.

Tools

Before subscribing to a service, check whether they have SEO and analytic tools. When building a website, you’re aiming for some traffic, and you want to measure it.

Templates

No-code website builders provide templates for their users. What you need to look at is if you can work on them easily and personalise them for your business.

Customer Service

Your website is one of the most important elements of your business, it has to run smoothly. Unfortunately, things can go wrong, and when it happens, you need easy-to-reach customer service.

No-Code Website Builders

WordPress

WordPress is one of the best-known no-code website builders. It works with blocks, where you can put your text content, images and videos. You can carry those blocks around your design page until it looks how you want it (drag and drop design).

It offers various plugins and built-in marketing tools for your needs. The SEO and analytics tools help you to attract and track visitors.

WordPress comes with two plans and offers a one-year free domain name and personalised email address.

Webflow

Webflow comes with SEO tools, plugins, and customisable website designs. It offers collaboration on content within your teams.

However, compared to other no-code website builders, it requires a bit more time to learn and get familiar with the system. One great plus of Webflow is that it’s free until your website becomes online.

They offer website and business plans separately, and you can combine them based on your needs. They provide a free SSL certificate with their plans.

Wix

Wix is a beginner-friendly no-code website builder with a drag-and-drop design system. The service contains over 500 customisable website templates. You can filter them based on business categories. The templates include features according to your business. For instance, if you’re a travel service, the templates come with booking and calendar features.

Wix provides custom domains, SEO tools, analytics and free SSL certificates with its plans.

Bubble

Bubble is an easy-to-use, no-code website builder with good storage space. Like the previous services, Bubble also has a drag-and-drop design system. It supports over 80 languages and multiple currencies. It also comes with team collaboration on building websites and plugins.

Bubble has four plans: free, personal, professional and production. Their free plan is good for learning the platform. It doesn’t offer custom domains, and the storage space is limited. Also, their price range is on the high side; it starts at $29 (€28.40) and goes up to $529 (€517.90) per month.

Squarespace

Squarespace offers well-designed templates that are easy to work on. Their e-commerce and marketing service comes with various features.

It has integrated SEO and analytic tools to increase website traffic. You can also see where visitors are coming from and which keywords they use to land on your website.

Squarespace comes with four plans. Their recommended plan is the Business plan, at $24 (€23.50) monthly. With this plan, you get a personalised domain name, full e-commerce features and unlimited team members’ collaboration.

Conclusion

No-code website builders offer great freedom to entrepreneurs with no coding skills. You can play around with their beginner-friendly tools and create your website.
