Weebly website builder is one of the top website builders on the market today. It was initially released in 2006 and it’s based in San Francisco, California. As Weebly claims, with more than 20 million sites and tons of Weebly reviews, it is within the top five used website builders. To evaluate all of this and if  Weebly is good for small business owners who want to take their businesses online, we naturally decided that we needed to perform a thorough review of Weebly just like we have with other major website builders. We assessed Weebly in 12 different areas: usability, pricing, design, responsiveness, loading speed, SEO, integration, features, support, pros and cons and final verdict. We have found that when attempting to retrieve the most comprehensive review a website builder’s capacity, it is vital that we look at all the integral parts of the website building system. Furthermore, when judging a website builder it is important that you can break things down into different factors, as some factors may not hold much bearing for some while simultaneously holding a considerable amount of bearing for others.

Ins and Outs Of Weebly Website Builder

Usability

During my experience using Weebly, I found that it was incredibly easy to use. It offered a very simple and standard drag and drop platform. It worked well and was straightforward. I would say that compared to many other website builders I have used, it is by far one of the easiest and most simple setups. When you begin building your website on Weebly, navigation through the steps is easy to work through and intuitive—making it a great choice for beginners.

Pricing

Before discussing the costs of different packages that Weebly has, lets us first discuss Weebly free plan. As they market around, is Weebly free plan really free? Yes and no! Yes because you can have a website that can go live on the internet for free and no because you can’t have your custom domain and can’t use more than 500 MB of Storage Space. Except for drag and drop features, you can’t use any other features. Weebly’s pricing rates are pretty good. They range from $9 a month to $59 a month. The plan that I would recommend is the pro plan which costs $12 a month. This plan comes with an unlimited number of pages, no ads, up to an entire year with free domain, thorough reports about your site, site-search and no limits on storage and blog capability. You can sell up to 25 products with this plan with a 3% transaction fee. You can also opt for the business plan which is $25 a month. The business plan has no transaction fees and no product limit.

Coming to Weebly pricing plans, prices of plans ranging from $9 a month to $59 a month.  All plans and features of each plan are explained in the following Image.  Weebly domain cost for all the paid plans is free for the first year and renewal after that costs every year $19.95. The plan that I would recommend is the pro plan which costs $12 a month. This plan comes with an unlimited number of pages, no ads, up to an entire year with free domain, thorough reports about your site, site-search and no limits on storage and blog capability. You can sell up to 25 products with this plan with a 3% transaction fee. You can also opt for the business plan which is $25 a month. The business plan has no transaction fees and no product limit.

Design

Weebly has over 70 templates to choose from which isn’t a ton but it’s also more than some other builders. The designs that Weebly offers are mostly basic. Weebly does offer edits with CSS/HTML which only developers can utilize. They also don’t offer nearly as many templates for mobile usage. I found Weebly to be a bit restricting regarding content placement which was somewhat limited. In short, Weebly’s designs are a bit limited but if you can use CSS/HTML, you will be less limited and will have more to work with.

Loading Speed

This is the section, where most website builders tend to loose to custom coded websites. The obvious reason is website builders provide so many options for every user resulting in more code and data fetch from the database. Extra calls, will make website built on website builders load a bit slow. However, to some extent, Weebly loading speed can be optimized by leveraging browser caching, minifying  JS, CSS and compressing images. asWeebly websites work websites for loading fast, loads okay website builders like Squarespace. It tends to be on the slower side at times which I noticed when giving it a try. They don’t offer any integrated speed optimization additions but they do have a CSS/HTML editor which can help with speed performance. I also found an area in the support center that offers a few techniques to help with your speed performance. I would maintain that if loading speed is a huge deal for you and your site needs, you are most likely better suited with a different builder.

Weebly for loading speed has mixed reviews from its users. Some feel the loading speeds are good and some feel the other way. The reason for that is no two sites built with the website builder are same. Some websites may be photo rich and load slow, while some other websites are very well optimized for speed.  In our tests, compared to other website builders like Wix, Weebly performs better but loses to Squarespace. With websites being fetched from its own data centers, Weebly has an additional edge of customizing the web hosting for their website needs.  They don’t offer any integrated speed optimization additions but they do have a CSS/HTML editor which can help with speed performance.

SEO

I discovered Weebly to have lots of good ways to optimize SEO. Weebly uses your page name in the URL which is very helpful. Also, if you’re using Weebly for a blog post you can customize the last part of your URL to be virtually anything you want which is great for optimizing your SEO. These are assets that aren’t offered by all website builders alike. Another helpful addition is that while using Weebly you can go to the “advanced settings” on all of your pages and actually set your SEO title and also your meta description. This is great because you can add in whatever keywords you would like the title or description of the page which can boost SEO quite a bit.

Integration

While I was using Weebly I found that it offered quite a few options in terms of integration. It offered full access and control over my website’s HTML/CSS coding which I appreciated. Other options that Weebly offer are Paypal, Etsy, shopify, Social Media, Stripe, Authorize.net, Quickbooks, Google App Suite and over 200 more! In short, I found the integration options to be well varied and good in number.

Features

There are some notable features offered by Weebly that I want to mention. It has a pretty fantastic image editor that I loved. Images are so important on your website and I especially appreciate when I can edit the images to make them look how I want. Another feature that I loved was how the blog offered great options to help maximize SEO. Lastly, it offered the option to schedule any posts you want to make ahead of time for social media — a great tool for any blog.

Support

You can get support using Weebly via phone call, live chat, email or their help center that has common questions and tutorials. Their phone line is open Monday through Friday from 6 AM until 6 PM Pacific Time and Saturday and Sunday from 8 AM until 5 PM. One thing that I will mention is how simple using Weebly is — so the support you will most likely need is minimal. There are multiple support options offered by Weebly in the event that you have a problem.

Final Verdict

Just like with most other website builders, I think that Weebly would be a good choice for some and still be a bad choice for some others. If you’re looking for a super modern and advanced website I don’t think Weebly would be the best fit for you, as the designs are somewhat limiting and basic. However, if you are somewhat of a beginner and looking for something easy, straightforward and basic, I think Weebly would be a great fit for you. Also if you want to know what other real Weebly users are thinking about it, please scroll up and check Weebly user reviews.

    Have used Weebly to build two fairly simple websites. For my purposes, it’s been great. Easy to use, allowed me to build professional looking websites in a matter of a few hours, forms are easy to use to acquire user information. Metrics on the dashboard are fun to monitor. I have not explored its abilities for more in depth or complex sites.

    I have been using Weebly for 4 years to maintain a handful of websites. The most important and complete one of these is the site I have maintained for my church since 2003. I converted the site to weebly in 2013, as I was looking for a website builder that was more robust, promised stability and continued development in technology and features. They have met my expectations and I am very pleased with the software.

    Another objective of moving to Weebly is that I had multiple sites and needed to have them all under one umbrella. Makes it easier to maintain when you only have to learn one software. Additionally I was able to assign a secondary user with appropriate security to maintain selected pages on two of the sites.

    With regard to their “support” I am not able to give a rating as I only used it at the very beginning on a very limited basis. I have not had the need since.

    I have 10 sites, some commercial for my rental business and my book and speaking services and the rest are for non-profits like the local trap club, fly fishing club.  I am forced to use GoDaddy’s website program for my church and it is so much less flexible and hard to edit.  On Weebly you can have a site in 10-15 minutes if you have a few photos on your computer and have basic word processing skills.  Make it simple or add movies, slide shows, e-commerce, downloads, and more.  The key for you, however, is that all these features are just a few clicks away.  No XML or other programming.  All drag and drop.

    Getting a new website name (URL) is easy through Weebly and there is specific help for pointing an existing URL to Weebly. 

    Never needed to use their Support and I am not a computer person.  I only wish Microsoft and Apple services were as easy. 

    By next year I will change the church over to Weebly upon its renewal.

    I am a graphic designer and have been using Weebly for a while now for a majority of my client websites. I have 32 in the Designer site area and 10 in the free area. For the most part I LOVE Weebly, it’s easy to use, I can design a site fairly quickly and it’s easy to customize the code in the back end to make the themes unique for my clients. I love that my clients can easily do their own changes with their own login area. Some things I don’t like — in the designer area Weebly does not have the capability to easily download Widgets that are teamed with Weebly and use on the site. I think that this is a huge issue! Why pay more for the designer area when there are less options for the designer to make sites with special features that customers are asking for? Also the blog system lacks in sharing capabilities. I hate working with WordPress but their blog layouts and features have so many more options then Weebly. I have always had quick response with the help chat. I think pricing is fair. Their templates and themes are good, but I think they could have more templates to choose from. Usually I find that on their themes the logo area is way too small so I have to mess with the code to make that area larger. I’ve used some other website design programs and I always go back to Weebly. I hope they continue to improve and listen to their customers.

    We have built over 20 sites using Weebly. It is, for the most part, easy, quick and convenient. It lacks some flexibility and functionality in design, but overall for the cost is a good choice for site building. The drag and drop feature is very easy to use. An issue with billing, which we’ve experienced, is that with multiple sites that we manage when charges show up on our card there is nothing to indicate which site the charge was for and since the charges are staggered this is very confusing. A specific auto email for each site could make this easier on both ends.

    I use Weebly and I love it. I had used a Microsoft Office product previously, but Weebly out performs them in every way. I maintain my own site, changes are easy to make, and it looks polished and professional. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a site for their business.

  • I’ve been able to build a couple of websites pretty easily without skills or much experience. The prices are affordable. 

    I’ve waited a long time for a “chat” but usually get a decent reply to an email for help. Calling on the phone has worked well.

    I am a glad user of weebly. It is the best place to build website out there. The support I get from weebly is just great. And the pricing is very suitable.

  • I usually don’t give reviews, but I would like to say that I am happy with what Weebly offers. I’m not very tech savvy but Weebly makes it quite simple to create a descent website. I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on the simplicity (and ease of use) of my website from my clients (especially those in there 50’s and older).

  • I absolutely love using Weebly to build my websites for my clients.  It is easy to learn, use and is eye-popping!  My clients love the results that I deliver to them.

    I actually like Weebly for ease of use and simplicity of their website builder, so seeing my rating come out at a 3.0 after selecting each category seems odd, but it’s actually pretty accurate.

    What’s good about Weebly how simple and easy to figure out their site builder is with the drag and drop. You can also do a lot once you learn some tricks with the CSS. Their pricing is very competitive so I gave them 5 stars for that. I also feel the sites we created are secure and Google friendly.

    The reason my review came down to a 3 is the fact that their themes are so limited and unimaginative and their support has gone down hill as they’ve grown. This is common for most companies, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to ding them for lower quality support. When I first got going with them 2 years ago their support was awesome, but not so much now as they’ve gotten bigger.

    Overall I do recommend Weebly for the right type of site/client/niche as it’s easy to use and cost effective.

    I have been very pleased with Weebly.  It’s easy to use and creates a professional-looking website.  The drag and drop features for adding headings, text, images, etc. work well.   I’ve had just a few reasons to try to customize and mostly been successful at what I wanted to do.  Not being an expert in HTML, the customization took a little work, but I was eventually able to figure it out.
    The only other downside is that sometimes the text editor behaves a little quirky and not quite as smoothly as a normal word-processing program.  But that complaint is minor compared to all of the other nice benefits.  I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to quickly create a website.

    We love our website through Weebly!  As a family owned and operated business, we share many responsibilities and juggle many hats.  This has allowed us to easily set up a professional site without any experience.  We can make changes on the run, and really not worry about our site too much.  Have recommended Weebly to many friends and other business connections as a way to get their business up and going quickly.

    I love Weebly! I find it very convenient and user-friendly. I love having access to my own website at all times and making changes or updates as I like. It’s easy to navigate and the templates are always updated to offer current options. The odd time that I’ve had a question or gotten stuck on something a customer service representative has always responded quickly and followed up. I’ve been with other companies and find Weebly to be a more affordable option as well as the cleanest design. You don’t need to have any technical prowess to navigate it.  I have and will continue to recommend Weebly to others.

    I have been using Weebly for over 10 years and overall, Weebly is a great company and product.
    PROS:
    1.  Their customer service is always incredibly nice and knowledgable making working with them a real pleasure.
    2.  If you’re not the most tech-savvy Weebly is the way to go! Incredibly intuitive interface to navigate. 
    3.  Overall, an easy system to use. 

    CONS:

    Fonts are not the best selections (a designer definitely did not select them) – they should model their typefaces after Squarespace and then they’d really have one of the best products out there.
    When creating a website for a client they should model their transfer of ownership to the client like Squarespace for a much more professional experience for both the client and the designer. 
    Full-width slideshow header/banners are not currently an option.
    Because I mentioned Squarespace so much, why not just them you ask…their templates are so fleshed out when you begin with them that a lot of time of spent trying to shift it from the theme’s business to your business. 

    Good luck!

    I love Weebly! In fact I recommend almost all my clients to use a Weebly site, unless they are really needing some technical things and plug ins. Let’s start with the cons first and then give the good stuff!

    CONS:

    As a designer who has a seller account with weebly, I feel the monthly hosting is a little high for a web building business. I currently have 28 clients and have to pay nearly $250 a month for hosting, to me that is a little much, and while my clients are paying for the hosting, I would rather be charging for the hosting myself and making a little money instead of having to pay all of it to weebly.

    As of right now, any sites that I build for my clients has ZERO apps available to use, on my 0wn personal website I get apps and there is a lot of neat features that can help a website a lot, but on the builder for my clients they have not yet made it the app market available.

    Most of the themes feel like they are exactly the same with just very minimal differences between them. It seems like before they had the mobile responsive websites they actually had some better themes, but I also understand with mobile friendly themes it has to be simplified some.

    No way to revert the website to a previous date if you happen to mess up your website. Since I teach my clients how to mostly self maintain their websites, from time to time, I have one that will mess up their website pretty badly and then I have to go back and fix their mess ups, if they had a history option, then when a client messes up their site, all I would have to do is go back to before they messed things up.

    PROS:

    Weebly is simple to learn and simple to teach. I have been building websites and teaching my clients how to edit and maintain them themselves over the last 6 years. It takes an average of 1 hour to teach even the most computer illiterate of clients how to use their website with very few of them asking more questions afterwards.

    User friendly and easy to edit. I have dealt with WP sites before and it took 30 minutes to change 2 or three things because you had to go to 10 different places to change them. In weebly, you change it on the page you want to change it and then you are done.

    Great galleries. Again WP you had to find a plugin to us with it, then figure out how to install the plugin, then figure out how to upload pictures to the plugin and then test to see if it even worked. Weebly, you set up the gallery, upload your pictures and your done, no muss no fuss.

    Price: Okay I gave the negative for the client side of things, but as a personal consumer I feel like the price is great. Now even if I was having to pay the $7.99 a month for myself I wouldn’t feel that that is a bad price (I pay $52 a year because I was grandfathered in with the old pricing).

    Overall, I have nothing but good things to say about weebly, in fact if I wasn’t also using this to sell websites to my clients, I probably wouldn’t have any complaints, but because I do so much with the client side of things, I see the minor flaws that Weebly has and can overlook them without any problems.

    For a small-to-medium sized business, Weebly is great. Out of the web builders I have tried, it is definitely the easiest to use for a non-coder. There are a variety of freely available templates, and the templates are easily customizable as far as colors and fonts. If you know web coding, you can also get into the CSS of the theme and change things to your heart’s delight. Warning: doing this will “void the warranty” so to speak, and support staff will be unable/unwilling to help you if you break something. 

    If you want to customize the themes without breaking into the CSS, you can also do so with drop-in HTML text boxes. You can add third-party widgets, create your own interactive elements, or even just add your text and images from an HTML approach. This is helpful because, for example, Weebly’s Title element is only an H2 header, rather than an H1, so if you want to dig into SEO Optimization the HTML element can come in handy. 

    The support team has been helpful in resolving small issues, but there are several times when I inquired about a feature that is not currently supported, and the quick answer was basically “we don’t do that and never will.” Not, “I’ll forward your suggestion to the development team,” or “here’s another solution that might work,” but just a dead-end. A minor issue for me, but I wish there was a little better way to crowdsource suggestions.

    One major drawback: the backup. I tried backing up my site using the built-in backup feature, and it’s pretty much useless. Certain directories are not included in the backup (including many of the images), so it would not be useful in getting the site back up and running if something were to happen to it, which is the whole point of a backup. I’ve had a few times when Weebly’s servers have been temporarily down, and I wanted to build an abbreviated, static backup of my site on another server that I could switch to on such occasions, but the backed up site files were so incomplete that I couldn’t use them. I contacted support, and again, their answer was “our backup is not designed to be able to migrate your site off Weebly” (or rebuild your site at all, it would seem) so if you ever leave Weebly you’ll have to start from scratch. 

    So in summary, aside from some more advanced limitations, and some support issues, Weebly is great for users who want a lot of options at a reasonable price, and a great-looking site with a minimal learning curve.

    I’ve tried Wix, WordPress, and other CMS systems. When I first started making websites, Weebly was the easiest platform to use but also had the most flexibility for the level. I think WordPress has the most customization ability, but it’s also the most glitchy because the add ons and customization messes with the code.

    If you own a business, run an event, host an informational site, or something that doesn’t require a ton of user-to-user interaction, Weebly’s the best site you can use. The only thing I wish were different, and may change in the near future, is that it’s tough to customize colors and font styles within a theme. But if you have some coding skills, you’ll be all right.

    Be creative and don’t be afraid to delete parts of a template and make your own layout. I’ve made really different sites using the same template in some cases and I do the work relatively quickly.

    Shout out to Weebly’s customer service. They are very friendly and seem like nice humans outside of the job as well.

    I have used Weebly for many years and on over 20 websites. It is by far the easiest to get started with and the easiest to get launched. 

    I would recommend Weebly to anyone that wants to get a site up and going in a day or less. 

    I would agree that from a reseller side, it is a little expensive. But other than that, I would recommend them to anyone.

    Fantastically easy to set up, change the look with theme-switching with incredible ease, and flexible enough to run a half-dozen of my different sites’ needs.  Truly one of, if not *the* most versatile website solutions out now:  both with options for simple needs, to those who want to tweak code and provide e-commerce and more.

    Weebly are in my opinion, the best option for building a website, when you either have limited time or an open evening in which to explore things further. I have tried other platforms and think sometimes they are for the better but eventually Weebly add something else and then I consider them again.

    I have only one grumble, the current pricing options. I retain my own domains elsewhere and would rather not pay for one with Weebly which I am not going to use. Please reduce my hosting price via the domain name reduction.

    Love Weebly!  I’ve used it to stand up a number of sites quickly and easily.  I’m not a web-guy, and don’t know adobe that well, or other web software.  But with this service I am able to handle some pretty amazing things, like setting up a ‘store’ to take orders for products, etc. 
    Thanks Weebly for making it easy for the ‘rest’ of us!

    I am using the free Weebly website builder and have found it super easy to use. The learning curve is so simple that I had the site up and running within minutes! Maintaining is has been a breeze. I recommend it to everyone that is interested in having your own website! Thanks Weebly for your service!

    I really love using Weebly.com. It’s so quick and easy to use compared to other templetive website sites where loading takes for ever and is glitchy–not the case with Weebly.com. I love the QUICK support, pricing and variety of themes. I’d love to see more current themes that have anchors on a one-page layout w/o having to post html coding. Not having to html code is the main reason why I love this platform. Just need to see a few more options. I will continue to use and recco this awesome brand!

    I love Weebly. It’s simple, easy to use, drag and drop functionality with the ability to add blogs and ecommerce with a cart. And Google likes it…it’s good for SEO. I use it all the time for my clients to generate beautiful websites that I can rank and use for lead generation for them. If you do want to insert some html code, you can do that too.  My only complaint & reason it gets 4 stars for flexibility, is they stopped allowing the alt text for photos to be indexed by Google, which makes it more difficult for SEO, but as I said, it’s still very doable! The fees are fair and there is a while labeled client dashboard so my clients can update their own content if they wish, such as blog posting or ecommerce items updates.

    Weebly was a great website builder, especially since I have almost no experience in this area. No coding required and simple drag and drop features made it really easy to setup a website fast. I also liked the plethora of different themes they had to choose from. I’ve gone on to build two more websites for other ventures using Weebly and still love it!

    I would not recommend Weebly.
    I have been a user for over 3 years albeit at a basic level even though I upgraded to Pro.
    I created a site for our condo, one for my wife’s church and one for myself (have handed over the condo and church sites and both have changed to different build sites)
    It is definitely NOT an intuitive site.
    You have to build by trial and error and the biggest frustration is that there is no “Undo” button.
    I have to exit without “Publishing” and start again, losing all the work up to the point of the error which I could not “go back” on or “undo”.
    The iPad App version is a waste of time as it does not display what is seen on the Mac.
    The only reason I continue with my own website (denzillion.com) is that I have list the passion to try something else. I am 72 and consider myself “computer savvy” but Weebly has me beaten!

    Weebly is a great website builder for your first website. It creates good looking sites and it is easy to get started with. Each of the themes can be enhanced with CSS and adding pages is fast. The interface can be a little fiddly, especially the drag and drop functionality.

    Weebly helped me build what feel is a very professional looking website completely by myself. I can not say enough about the ease of use. 

    In my history I have tried to learn to code to build my own website. I have at one time paid someone $2,500 to build a website for me and when looking to build a beta site I looked into both Weebly and Wix. Things just seemed to come together easier with Weebly.

    We recently switched to Weebly to have more creative control and to update the look of our site. The price point was good and the design process made simple by the use of a template. During the building process and transfer of our domain the customer service was excellent, quick, and the follow up helpful. It is very easy to maintain.

    Had a longer review written here, but it was deleted when I hit submit because I hadn’t rated all categories, so here’s the gist of it.  I don’t know about support, because I have never actually contacted Weebly for any issues (but I gave it a 5 here anyway because I am guessing it is probably good and can’t submit this review without rating the support factor).  Other than that, the only issue I have ever actually had with Weebly is not always being able to find the same theme I want to use to for another website again when I start to build another site.  Beyond that, Weebly is great in my book!  Works great for a “non-techie” like me and “major techies” like some of my friends.  You can build a clean, beautiful website with Weebly from scratch that looks very professional.  Weebly gets an A+ in my book!

    I’ve been using Weebly for years now, not only for my site but I do recommend it when I design sites for other people, however, there are some things that aren’t as flexible as I’d prefer when designing. It doesn’t have an option to do a blank template where I can create it from scratch however I’d like and that leaves me only to use their templates. For someone who is looking for a nice, intuitive site building option without wanting too much personalization, Weebly is a great fit that is cost effective. However, do not buy your domain through them as you will not be able to bring that domain to any other website host.

    I’ve enjoyed using Weebly over the past 7 years.  I would say it is a great option for those needing a website for their business or school/community function.  The support is mostly via email and there are a ton of online references that will usually answer your questions.  The pricing is hard to beat.  The Templating and Themes are somewhat limited and I’ve had to buy my themes from a 3rd party to get the custom look that I wanted.  I would say this is a very flexible website creator platform and it has helped me grow my two businesses.  Hard to go wrong with Weebly!!

    Was using WordPress and although I liked it. I found Weebly much more intuitive and fun to use. I am not a coder so the switch to Weebly was a welcome one for me. It’s easy to use, has great functionality and I found the tutorial videos helpful. Would like to see updates to these videos especially the SEO one. I like that I can make changes very quickly to my website, so easy! Big thumbs up and so glad I made the switch!

    I started using Weebly around 2008.  I have set us at least a dozen websites on Weebly that were used for business purposes.  I’m a visual website builder, so I build it as I go.  Weebly is great for that.  It used to be more flexible when it came to creating top banners, now it’s not as functional, but it works.  I wish they hadn’t changed it.  They have gotten more “template” based, which I can see as valuable for beginners, but I liked the older way.  They took some cues from Wix, which I don’t like.  But I still like Weebly better than anyone else I’ve tried. 

    It’s easy to set up a site, easy to make changes, putting premium content (like videos) on the site, using your own domain, etc. require payment of a plan (basically about $100 a year).  But you can easily set up FREE sites that are pretty good.  You can back up website and copy on of your sites as a base for building another similar site – which I like.

    I wouldn’t pay to have them set up my domain for me.  It’s too easy to use godaddy.  There are simple instructions on how to direct the connect a godaddy domain to a weebly site.  

    Almost 10 years and I’m still happy.  I’ve had no trouble getting support the 3-4 times I’ve needed it.  

    I use Weebly.com for website creations, Shutterstock.com for images, Serif Drawplus to create graphic elements, and videopad video editor for creating videos and Google Adwords for advertising.  I’ve made a lot of money from my weebly websites over the past 10 years, so I’m not complaining.  I know nothing about programming, but I do know how to layout a graphic and text package that gets people to pay.

    I taught music and music technology and computer technology. A long time ago I used FrontPage to create webpages for my students. Then someone clued me into Weebly and I haven’t gone back. Why make life so hard? You can learn to do almost everything on Weebly. I have now shared it with others who have had great experiences. The templates just make it so easy, but then you can customize everything. Keep up the good work Weebly!

    I have used Weebly for a couple of years now. I have built two different websites for my personal use and have been very satisfied. I had tried other web builders before but I found this one more flexible and easy to use. I like that you can tweak some html code. I would love if they offered more flexibility in this area but I guess for a price I paid, it is a decent deal. For a nominal price, I can also use my own domain name and not have Weebly show up anywhere on the site. I also like the themes. They are modern, clean and classy. Overall, I am a happy customer and would happily recommend this service to others.

    I’ve had a couple sites with Weebly (2 free sites and one pro site) almost since Weebly’s beginning. I wont change because the support is top of the line when I can’t figure things out but I have to say for a technologically challenged person like me the whole thing is exceedingly easy to figure out and to use. There are very simple tutorials for whatever is not obvious and simple tutorials that explain the updates. Thanks Weebly for these years of ease of website building.

    Weebly is a rippling stream of butterscotch candy that flows mellifluously through the annals of time. In its pure form, it is a hardened hunk of coal that must be wined, dined, and mined in order to extract its orgasmic diamondy center.

    Few scholars have ever come close to catching its essence in a butterfly net, however, Sir Herbert P. Chesterdrawers, the world’s premiere Water Vole Chemist had this to say, “Never have I encountered such a taint-ticklingly delightful proposition. Alert the albatross at once so that a sacrificial feast may be undertaken in the utmost precarious regards.”

    Unfortunately, Sir Chesterdrawers’ mortality was claimed by the Chatbots of Lame on a fateful evening that involved a rabid sardine tin and a rubbish truck tire; the general consensus being it was an inside job perpetuated by the Duke of Marshmallow Fluff. But before his untimely death, Sir Chersterdrawers was able to safeguard his formula from the Baron of Whine in a sycamore hollow east of the Dunes of Zeppoli.

    Years later, a pack of languid rooks descended upon the Dunes and unearthed the formula, of which would stand as the key ingredient to Weebly’s incipience. And thus, the people assembled and declared it was worthy of approximately three point four stars. And they sang high praise of  Sir Herbert P. Chesterdrawers. And they cursed the nefarious Chatbots of Lame. And they celebrated the languid rooks. And my ass fell off.

    THE END.

    I have been using Weebly for about one year now, and completely new to the website world.  I found this to be perfect for my start up business and easy to navigate.  When I was researching different sites for web building, by far Weebly had the best customer service help and guidelines to make this an easy build. Thank You so much!!
