What are the limitations of free website builders?
Free website builders and hosting
Free website builders let you create a simple, attractive website easily without prior experience. But do they always offer hosting? The answer, unfortunately, is no: In most cases, free providers don't offer hosting as part of their basic package. Web hosting requires expensive hardware, which means it's often not financially viable to carry out yourself. To have hosting included as part of your free website builder package will come at an cost. The other option is to source an external web hosting provider independently.

Some free website builders do in fact offer website hosting as part of their free package. But this normally means that other features are limited. The free basic package may come with hosting, but doesn't offer a custom domain name, SEO tools, additional users, or an e-commerce function. Other free website builders that offer hosting may place other restrictions, like removing the sign-up function for site visitors, stopping offline page maintenance, not offering SSL security, or blocking certain payment functions, like PayPal or credit cards.

Lastly, some free website builders that offer hosting run ads on your site. This is their way of funding their company to be able to offer you a free website builder – and you'll typically see no commission for these ads, regardless of how well your website performs.
Free website builder templates
Templates are a great way to give your website consistency and style. If you're a beginner with no prior experience in programming or web design, templates are crucial to making sure your site is attractive and has a clear layout.

If you find one that suits your needs perfectly, then it makes sense to use it. But unfortunately, they don't offer a great degree of flexibility, and they won't be exclusive to your site. So if you have an exact idea in mind but lack the programming and web design skills to make it a reality, or if you just want a nice, smart design that is unique to your brand, then a free website builder template probably isn't the answer.
Free website builders with e-mail functions
When setting up your company website, you might want to have your own, domain-specific e-mail address incorporated into it. For example, if you were to acquire the domain name 'bestcars.com', then it can add an extra level of professionalism to have e-mails for all your employees and customer services using this domain name (for instance: miranda@bestcars.com or info@bestcars.com), rather than using a centralized e-mail address domain. Unfortunately, free website builders don't offer this e-mail address feature free of charge.

In fact, many free website builders don't offer an integrated e-mail service as part of their basic package, meaning that you'll need to either use plugins to integrate an e-mail function yourself, or run your e-mail service externally from a separate place entirely.
