You’ve decided that it’s time to start a website—and that’s great news. Whether your website is for a small business, an online portfolio, or a personal blog, staring your own site is a huge step towards a new and exciting future. There’s only one problem: You don’t know how to code.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to get a website off the ground without learning HTML or hiring a website designer. There are more platforms out there than ever that focus on helping people get online even if they don’t know anything about coding. Here are some of our favorite website building platforms that require zero coding knowledge.
Name.com Website Builder
If you want a beginner-level website that uses a drag and drop interface to create web pages, the Name.com Website Builder is your best bet. Choose from over 40 templates and customize the colors, images, and more to make the website your own. Anyone interested in starting an online business will also be happy to know that Name.com Website Builder supports eCommerce.
Rapidpress, Name.com’s WordPress hosting plan, is another popular choice for website beginners because of its easy to use interface and extensive library of themes. Although HTML and CSS knowledge can be helpful here for customizing the look and feel of your WordPress website, it is by no means required for creating a professional looking site. Further customize your website by installing various plugins for analytics, comments, social media, and more.
Squarespace is another good option for a no-code website, and is well known for their beautiful templates and ease of use. Although plugins cannot be installed on Squarespace like they can be on WordPress, their built-in tools are more than sufficient for website beginners. A domain that you purchase at Name.com can easily be connected to your Squarespace website through Name Apps with just a couple of clicks.
…and many more
We’ve compiled some of our favorite solutions for no-code websites in the Website Builder section of Name Apps. Our App store is full of helpful tools that will allow you to put your domain name to work no matter your level of website and coding experience. And because these Apps are built to be as easy to use as possible, many can be set up with just the click of a button—with no extra work on your part.
