If like many people, you want to set up a simple website, but struggle with the technical aspects, try Wix.com, the stylish and easy way to establish a quick Web presence, whether that be for personal or business use.

This free, advertisement-supported service includes a “drag and drop” editor requiring no technical expertise, plus hundreds of ready made templates. You can customise anything: the colour, text, images, layout, etc. Wix.com includes over 250 different add-ons like Google Calender, video and social plug-ins to add extra interactivity to your site. Mobile friendly code is also available and ensures mobile device compatibility. Other features include e-commerce, cloud hosting, and customer support options.

Getting started is very easy. Simply select what type of website you’d like (business site, online store, event site, restaurant site, portfolio, and others), then browse through the range of templates until you find one you like. After this, it’s just a case of using the simple interface to customise the text, images, and other elements.

A number of premium plans are available at Wix and recommended if you want to extend the functionality of your existing free website. This includes more bandwidth, a domain name for easy access, premium apps, no advertisements, and more features.
