You can create a free website in just 10 minutes with Wix. Even if you have no coding skills and little or no web design experience, this easy tutorial will show you how.

Wix is a free website builder with tons of features and a really easy to use intuitive drag & drop platform. You don’t need to have any HTML or CSS knowledge in order to create a beautiful website in just minutes! Just choose a design, begin customizing and be online right away! 

In this article, I will take you through the whole process of creating a free website with Wix, from signing in to customizing and publishing your website. 

Getting Started

1. Visit the Wix website

2. Sign in. Fill in your details or just sign in using your Facebook or Google account.

2. You will then be redirected to a page where you’ll have to choose your website’s category. There are many categories you can choose from, like Music, Entertainment, Hotel & Travel, Restaurant, One-Page, Arts, Business, Photography, Retail and even Online Shops! After you choose the Main category from the left side, the subcategories will appear on the right side. Select the subcategory for your website. For this test website example, I chose the Personal Blog category.

3. Next, you are taken to a page where you can select which template you want to use for your free Wix website. Select your favorite Wix template from this list. There are many Wix templates you can choose from, each one having its special characteristics. I chose a feminine, minimalist and clean personal blog template. You can click on either View and see how the template looks like, or click Edit and start customizing your website.
