Do you have a unique busi­ness idea or pas­sion? Whats the best way to let oth­ers know about your busi­ness and pas­sion? It’s quite sim­ple – a web­site can be the best way. But you have busi­ness or pas­sion to do some­thing, not the ex­per­tize to build a web­site. Here GoDaddy can ben­e­fit you with its free Web­site Builder.

Yes, Godaddy pro­vides host­ing ser­vices but they also un­der­stand the pain points of the con­sumers, thus they come up with the right so­lu­tion which let you cre­ate a beau­ti­ful web­site with­out hav­ing cod­ing knowl­edge.

How to get started?: It’s quite sim­ple, visit GoDaddy web­site builder page where you can choose from• Per­sonal • Busi­ness • Busi­ness Plus • On­line Store All four start at zero cost, no need to pay even a sin­gle penny to use this ser­vice, just choose the most rel­e­vant one. Click on “Start for Free” and you will be redi­rected to reg­is­ter page, where you need to pro­vide your email ID and pro­ceed to next step.

Now you need to pro­vide some info about your site and then click on “Get Started”. It will take you to the main page to choose col­ors and fonts for your web­site.

There are nu­mer­ous theme op­tions to choose from, se­lect one and add your Text, Logo, Cover Pho­tos, etc. to give it per­sonal look. Se­lect your color scheme and fonts, and when done, click on ‘Pre­view’ to see the real world ex­pe­ri­ence or di­rectly click on ‘Pub­lish’.

The home­page will be avail­able by de­fault to cus­tomise, ad­di­tion­ally, you can add more pages to your site.

For in­stance, here I have cre­ated a con­tact page and got the op­tion to choose one con­tact form. Here as well you can cus­tomise the form as per your taste. GoDaddy Web­site Builder Re­view You can add more pages and for each, you have var­i­ous ac­tions to choose from in­clud­ing blog, about, cal­en­dar, photo gallery, sell on­line, and more.

Web­site Builder Us­abil­ity: Con­sid­er­ing a free tool to cre­ate a web­site with­out hav­ing cod­ing knowl­edge, then it’s one of the best ones I have used till date. Though its not like WordPress which may re­quire some cod­ing knowl­edge, at the same time, it’s not that much flex­i­ble and ver­sa­tile.

With sim­plic­ity, it comes with lim­i­ta­tions like you have pre­de­fined pages to add to your web­site. But you can get lim­it­less op­por­tu­ni­ties as well by pay­ing some amount to GoDaddy and get help from an ex­pert to build a full fledged web­site. It also comes with fea­tures like Search En­gine Op­ti­mi­sa­tion, Email Mar­ket­ing, etc.

Bot­tom­line: No doubt this is the sim­plest method to cre­ate a web­site in a very quick time. With the clean and easy in­ter­face, GoDaddy Web­site Builder is the per­fect plat­form for any type of web­site. But free things come with lim­i­ta­tion and to un­lock them you need to pay some amount, same is with GoDaddy Web­site Builder.

PROS: Easy to use, Free trial, beau­ti­ful tem­plates with easy cus­tomiza­tion CONS: Has lim­i­ta­tion which can be re­moved af­ter pay­ing some money
