"One of the best but not the best one."

February 27, 2015  |  By MartinMcTR

 |  Version: Weebly 1

Pros

Unlimited number of pages on a website, very easy and intuitive drag and drop editor.

Cons

I don't much like Weebly templates. I can't say that they aren't professional but they aren't so beautiful as I was expected. After Wix - where there are gorgeous templates - Weebly templates look more primitive.

Summary

I've analyzed almost ten different website builders on webbuildersguide.com - both free and paid. After using half of them I've chosen Weebly, Wix from free ones and Squarespace.com - from paid ones. Weebly is very simple and easy-to-use but as I said before - their website templates look boring comparing to Wix and Squarespace. Also another strange feature that if you want to sell anything from your website on Weebly - Weebly will take 3% commission. In general I liked Weebly but it's not the best offer I've met.

"Not what it could be"

December 01, 2014  |  By jtitone

 |  Version: Weebly 1

Pros

Drag and drop functionality
Wide array of templates

Cons

Blog functionality is sub-par
No option to insert multiple images in text block
Not responsive to customer requests for improvement
No option for user to edit functionality

Summary

I would not recommend Weebly, especially to anyone wanting to use the blog function. I've requested two easy and universally used changes and they haven't responded other than "we don't have that feature." As it is, you can't create a sidebar list of recent blog post headlines. And you can't insert more than one photo into a text block. Very frustrating.

"Love it until you need support!"

November 14, 2014  |  By goldenmatt

 |  Version: Weebly 1

Pros

great overall tool in so many ways

Cons

Support is awful. I changed a few spacing issues in CSS over 3 years of use... now I have an issue, and they refuse to give me even advice... let alone real support. I am using their template, but made a few little changes, and they tell me that they wont support it all going forward.

So, if you want to do a quick family website... fine. but this is not for businesses!!! Buyer Be Ware!

Summary

Don't do it if you have to rely on it!

"Product nice but tough for novice."

September 12, 2014  |  By lehmason36

 |  Version: Weebly 1

Pros

Looks great, nice templates, good customer service.

Cons

For a 1st timer, who doesn't know how to code it was very hard to use. Couldn't fully customize everything. Had to eventually use an experienced designer.

Summary

Eventually used an website design company, SMR Website Design. They did a great site for me cheap. Better than I coulve done.

"Best and very easy website creator"

June 23, 2014  |  By Coolboy12355

 |  Version: Weebly 1

Pros

Reasonable Prices there not the best, Easy to use and set up a domain and you can create a store with goods and secure SSL and is just better over all and if you lose internet connection most of your stuff is saved from the time you where disconnected as long as you do not close the browser and hit retry when the box appears

Cons

Sometimes weebly can have a bit of a lag on slower connections

Summary

Weebly is a web creator that you should go check out and create your own opinions about.

"Hands down the BEST site builder for the average joe."

April 03, 2014  |  By chasingcarz

 |  Version: Weebly 1

Pros

Easy to use and gives you full artistic control that is only bested by people who can build their own sites using code. Caters to html illiterate people. As a default, it literally walks you through every step of the site building process as you build. Its just amazing.

Cons

I hate that I have to think of a con because I have has zero problems with weebly. In fact, when I signed up with ipage, someone called ME to see if I needed help setting up my account but weebly was so easy that I actually needed NO help. Not even with the verification thru google.

Summary

I have been building sites for kids and such for a long time and Weebly is, hands down, the best site builder I have ever used. Its so easy to build fabulous pages that I dont understand the negative views. It makes adding html and code SO easy I can't even fathom using another site builder again. It puts wordpress to shame, to be honest. Here is a wordpress site building page www.creepypastapeeps.wordpress.com and here is the weebly page at www.creepypastalegends.com. There's no comparison to what you can do to a page and the freedom of control you have. I have no affiliation with them nor to ipage but after TEN years of creative site building I can attest to the wonder of Weebly and the ease of ipage and BOTH are worth every red cent, which also happens to be cheaper than other site builders. In LOVE with weebly. Thank god someone figured out how to cater to non-tech people like me so that I can produce great designs and have complete artistic control.

"Weebly isn't really free."

February 20, 2014  |  By kdm98

 |  Version: Weebly 1

Pros

The software is good for novice website builders.

Cons

I gave this to an employee to update our website, but found out that THIS ISN'T FREE. Once designed, you have to pay to upload it anywhere and it is monthly. You either pay weebly to host your site or you pay them monthly to upload the site to your own. There is no option to one time pay to upload the site that was created.

"User friendly"

February 19, 2014  |  By sandylns1

 |  Version: Weebly 1

Pros

This is an excellent web site design suite. Plenty of templates to choose from, or create one yourself. Web site is easy to navigate with fairly helpful features. You have the ability to link to Facebook and other social media with built in widgets. Weebly also hosts your domain or you can purchase one from them. Not the cheapest hosting service but it doesn't seem to crash like others. Also seems to be spam free.

Cons

No free email accounts. They have partnered with Gmail for $4 a month.

Summary

I have used Weebly for a couple of years and host two web sites on their platform with excellent results.

"For the price (free), Weebly is second to none."

October 23, 2013  |  By Tollbridge

 |  Version: Weebly 1

Pros

Weebly gives the user a large selection of predefined templates of which company logos, photos, blogs etc. can be added to give each site a new look which surpasses the quality of nearly all other user created websites I've come across. I have paid so called 'professional site builders' to represent my brand and after only 2 hours I had built a site I was proud of and I have received many compliments from clients. The mobile apps available on Android and ios are stable and facilitate quick updates and media uploads.

I can see many individuals, families and small business owners using Weebly to create professional looking sites as an alternative to Facebook pages. The potential for Weebly in my opinion has not yet been fully realized.

It's now possible for anybody to have a website online that doesn't resemble the days of Geocities.

Premium users have access to detailed site stats on a simple dashboard layout. Each site can be saved in code for extra reassurance.

Cons

As a premium subscriber I'd enjoy the option to have access to a larger variety of stock, digital rights free image gallery. With that exception I feel I have access to one of the most user friendly services available.

Summary

o Weebly is the simplest website builder I have come across. It takes literally hours to create a fully customizable website that any business owner would be proud to upload and show to the world. You can then track how the world views your site daily, monthly easy-to-use statistical application, either sent to your email or via a stable ios / Facebook app. As a small businesses owner, the paid version was absolutely worth the invement providing me with valuable statistics for SEO.

"Excellent free option.. highly recommended!"

July 10, 2012  |  By mootrix

 |  Version: Weebly 1

Pros

Unlimited pages and unlimited bandwidth
Out of the box mobile support: see your website on your mobile phone!
Online website builder is relatively quick and very easy to use.
Support for editing html and CSS for more advanced users
Lots of themes to choose from.
Option to download you entire website to your computer.
There more but I'm tired of typing ;)

Cons

5 MB limit of uploads (minor problem eliminated with PRO account)
None that really harmed my experience.

Summary

Weebly is an excellent platform to create your own websites without knowing the inner workings of HTML and similar technologies. And even if your do know HTML and CSS you can edit your website to a great extent and save it as a custom template. The professional themes really bring out the best in weebly. It really is amazing how easy it is to create and update content on your website.

Note: As with all free online website creators your pages will come with a standard 'created with weebly' phrase that can be removed if you upgrad to the pro (paid) version of Weebly.

Also make sure you follow the terms of service (ToS), Weebly as with any other free website offering has the right to shutdown your website without notice if you violate their terms. Make sure you have read and understood what is prohibited and what is allowed, otherwise you may just lose your website.

Even if your are still unconvinced, try it out. You have nothing to lose but your time.

Updated on May 3, 2013
