Websites Come In All Shapes And Sizes

You can start a website for just about anything. Some of the most common kinds of websites are:

- Business websites
– Personal websites
– Ecommerce websites
– Mobile websites

Business websites are just what they sound like – sites that people use to promote their business. A personal website is a website for an individual, which is great for things like sharing photos and videos, talking about your hobbies, or showcasing your resume.

An ecommerce website is a website that allows visitors to purchase products or services. With an ecommerce website, you can sell goods and receive payments directly on your website. Mobile websites are sites that are optimized for viewing on mobile devices like smart phones and tablets. Mobile is one of the fastest growing website areas, so it’s definitely worth looking into mobile options for your website.

Whatever your individual needs, you can start a website that will help you accomplish your goals online. The possibilities are virtually limitless when you start your own website. If you can imagine it, you can create a website for it!

We’ll take a look at each type of website in more detail later, but before we get into that, let’s look at the big picture.

Websites Offer Countless Benefits

The Internet is the fastest-growing media platform we’ve ever known, which makes getting in now with your own website more important than ever. Think of it this way: It took radio 38 years to reach 50 million users. TV took 13 years.

The Internet? Just four years.

As of February 2013, the World Wide Web contains more than 13.86 BILLION web pages. That is A LOT of websites!

I would like to transfer a domain and rebuild my website. Do you offer support to complete this process, and how long would it take to complete?

    Beth Marcus says:

Ricardo says:

I can’t wait to start my new website! My business could really use one, and I have been looking everywhere for a good place to start. Thanks!

Andrew Yan says:

I’m very frustrated because I spotted a beautiful and easy to use template from Freewebsite and before I got anywhere with customising it, I migrated my domain to a different host and now, I’m totally stuck with difficult-to-use templates like wordpress and restrictive and unattractive Lord knows what it’s called. What am I gonna do?

    Beth Marcus says:

    @Andrew – Our websites are built to run on our proprietary website builder system, which is why you couldn’t transfer your template to another web host. We designed our system to be a more user-friendly, easy-to-use alternative to WordPress. If you want to come back to FreeWebsite.com, just shoot us an email at support@freewebsite.com and we’ll get you all set up!

Andrew Yan says:

I have a domain and a host. Can I use a template from FreeWebsite.com?

How much would I have to pay to use a FreeWebsite template for my domain?

Please advise with information.

Many thanks.

    Beth Marcus says:

    @Andrew – I’ve forwarded your message to our support team. Someone will be in touch soon!

Madison says:

How do I add an ecommerce store to my business website?

    Beth Marcus says:

greta says:

I will admit, I didn’t think I wanted a website. But I saw your ad and thought why not, since it’s free. So I set up a website for myself and it’s actually a lot of fun. I got my 500th visitor the other day and it felt awesome, I was so excited.

bumblebee481 says:

@Jake917: I just did my email and it was really easy. Log into your account and click check email. Then click add email address and type in what you want.

Jake917 says:

I got a website from you a few weeks ago. One question: how do I set up email for my site? Thank you.

Sally says:

Maybe I should google myself to find out what people will find! I guess if i had a website, I can make sure what comes up in google is what I want to share! Thanks for the tip! I’ll get on that!!!

BG says:

Ecommerce Website sounds perfect for me. I sell jewelery from home. Can I put photos of my products? Thanks! This is a fantastic opportunity, I am looking to take my business to another level and this seems perfect!

KC says:

Thanks for this writeup, it answers a lot of my questions. One think I still want to know – do we have to buy hosting to get a website here? I know web hosting can be expensive, is that where you make your money?

    Beth Marcus says:

    @KC – Hosting is included for free with every website, even if you chose our free website plan :)

Carly says:

I don’t have a business, but I do have a club that I think needs to be online. Would I still sign up for a business website, or would that be a personal website? Or does it matter?

    Beth Marcus says:

    @Carly – We do offer a club/organization website type as well, although a business site may also work for you!

Sarah says:

Even my little cousin has a website, and she’s 11!
