Choose a stunning template and customize anything with the Wix website builder—no coding skills needed.

Our Verdict

Wix is a long-standing favourite of mine and was previously the tool used to build NoCode.Tech before we moved to Webflow. Wix stands out with lots of flexibility in design and a very affordable pricing model, although it's definitely trickier to use than other options on this page such as Squarespace. If you want as much flexibility as possible without having to take weeks to learn a tool like Webflow, Wix is the go-to tool for you!

Weebly Screenshot
Our Top Pick!

Weebly

Weebly is the easiest drag and drop web builder out there

Our Verdict

Weebly stands out from the crowd with its ability to build and host websites for free. There are paid options too, but none of them are particularly expensive. As a trade-off, Weebly lacks the flexibility of other tools on this list, but comes with plenty of beautiful templates to fit any use-case

Webyo Screenshot
Our Top Pick!

Webyo

Visually build stunning white label websites for your clients without code.

Our Verdict

If you're comfortable with tools like Photoshop and Figma which use a "layers" approach to design, you'll feel right at home with Webyo. It's not the simplest tool, nor the cheapest, but if you're a designer building websites for clients, then the pricing will work for you and the interface will get you producing beautiful, CMS-backed websites fast!

Our Top Pick!

WordPress

Image of a Progressive Web App Installation Icon, indicating this tool supports the publishing of progressive web apps (PWAs)
Image of a Web Browser, indicating this tool supports the publishing of web apps

Create a free website or build a blog with ease

Our Verdict

Wordpress is one of the best known no-code website builders in the world and has a decade of trust and experience behind the platform. With a gigantic ecosystem of plugins, support and freelancers, Wordpress can fit almost any use-case and solve any problem. The catch? It's not cheap, it's not easy to use and in the 2020s, it feels outdated vs other tools on this list. This wouldn't be my first choice for most projects, but it's a great go-to in a pinch

Strikingly Screenshot
Our Top Pick!

Our Verdict

Cheap and Cheerful! Strikingly won't win you any awards for design, but if you want a flexible website + e-commerce store without breaking the bank or writing any code, it's hard to find a better recommendation than Strikingly!

Our Verdict

ReadyMag is a unique tool on this list, focused on creating on big, bold, design-heavy editorials, marketing pages and otherwise aesthetically-pleasing sites. It comes with a lot of design freedom, especially if you want a site that feels like a magazine spread, and yet still provides great, affordable pricing and a short learning curve. Very recommended!

Pixpa Screenshot
Our Top Pick!

Pixpa is my favourite portfolio creators vs the others in this list. Why? It has the best templates, it has attractive, reasonable pricing and it's exceptionally easy to use. On top of this, it comes with built in galleries, e-commerce and other features not found in many other competitors. Recommended!

Our Verdict

Building a website or portfolio specifically for the travel niche? Photler was built with you in mind and comes jam-packed with features for the budding or professional travel photographer. It doesn't win on flexibility or pricing compared to others on this list, but it does cater incredibly well to it's specific niche
