A neat way to save money on design fees is to use one of the stock website builders. They have ready-made templates, you upload your own content with easy to use drag & drop web building tools.
Some give free domain names, free hosting and other tools. Using them is a good way to get online quickly for free.
We've looked at those with free starter websites and recommend Site123 as the best option, it's not as powerful as some of the others and has less design options but it is the easiest to use by far and has great support.
The free plan is limited as your domain will be at your hosts address.
Our demo free site built for £0 at Site123 is www.mekatrig.site123.me, but they do give you a decent basic package and all Site123 websites come with free SSL, so they are secure Https websites.
We recommend starting with the site123 free websites builder to get your site up and running then, when you can, upgrading to their premium plan to get your exclusive domain name and some more powerful tools, at under £8 a month we think it's good value for money.
