Weebly is incredibly easy to use — a feature we appreciate most about the popular site-building platform. The interface is entirely browser based. You log into your account at Weebly.com and are greeted by a series of options to point and click, or drag and drop, with your mouse to move site elements into place. And it all begins with a theme, of which there are hundreds of industry-specific, unique-looking options.
Obviously, the most appealing price point is free. Everyone loves free! It's free to get started with Weebly.com, but your site will run Weebly ads and be found at a Weebly subdomain. You just have to upgrade to the most basic Starter plan to benefit from a free domain name for your ad-free site; however, the pricing for Weebly's paid plans can't hold a candle to the top cheap hosts out there.
The Weebly platform is trusted by nearly one million website owners at last count. Structurally, it's extremely reliable, though it doesn't tout the uptime rates you get from full-fledged web hosts. That being said, the support options aren't exactly on par with popular, price-competitive shared hosts you could be trusting with your site as an alternative. While there are tons of community forums, FAQs, and support articles for the Weebly builder online, we recommend you consider a hosting plan that includes the Weebly site builder for free.

Weebly is the winner
3 out of 5 times.
Weebly.com is essentially the welcome wagon of the website builder world. It's trusted by thousands of website owners, as well as the web hosting providers that have elected to offer the software as a value-added service to their plans. Weebly brings what-you-see-is-what-you-get simplicity and all the marketing and eCommerce tools a first-time site owner could possibly want. While some of the higher-tier paid plans are not economically competitive with the top shared hosts on the market, the Starter and Pro plans are pretty good values.
