Free site builders let you create websites even without coding knowledge. However, the downside is that is that they rarely offer affordable hosting services. Plus, they make it difficult and complicated to use an external web hosting provider. Some that do offer free hosting, often do so at the expense of a full-feature list or offer hosting in exchange for placing ads on your site.


Templates are great for beginners. However, the design possibilities are limited with fixed templates, especially with free ones. There may also be other websites using the exact same template, making it difficult to stand out from the crowd.


Many companies prefer their employees to have uniform email addresses, usually containing the company name for extra professionalism. However, free domain-specific email addresses aren’t possible with free website builders and some don’t even offer them for a fee. You may need to use a plugin, add an email function, or use an external service.
