What's the best platform to create and host a personal single-page website not requiring any coding?
- Beautiful single-page sites with a pretty awesome editor
Carrd is the most amazing web building platform I've seen to date- and trust me, I've tried everything. You start off with a blank page, or choose from expertly-designed templates, then you can build your own site with content LEGOs: drag text under an image, make a row of links across the top, or even add some of your own code.
When you discover control bars that let you break your site into pages, though, it's when everything changes: Carrd goes from letting you create business-card like pages to making full-blown websites for anything- home base for your app with dedicated support and contact pages, a sign-up form for an event that plugs names and comments into a Google sheet, ANYTHING (how do I make extra bold?)
Carrd is now my go-to tool for anything web-building related. I made a website for a friend and even made a few bucks off it. I'm also teaching an HTML class for my homeschool support group and there will be a whole lesson on Carrd!
I just want to say thanks to @ajlkn for my favorite website for websites, ever.
Found it to be extremely useful to create a profile site that I can easily share with people so they can find all my social media handles by just going here !
- Hey Burt, I would definitely recommend Weps for that (www.getweps.com). It's a chatbot website builder for building a simple one-page website that is responsive, SEO optimised, etc. You don't have to choose between hundreds of templates or do endless draggging or dropping. You can build your website also on your smartphone, not just desktop. The core audience is brick'n'mortar microbusiness owners but I think it might serve you great as well ;)
- Instapage is technically a landing page builder, but it serves as a great 1 page builder in a pinch. Literally the most intuitive drag and drop page builder tool I've ever used that still manages to pack in a ton of functionality like tweaking SEO metadata, dropping analytics pixels for Google Analytics and Facebook, and a lot more. Wish I'd found this ages ago. Get a free account here http://instapg.es/hbTlg
