In this new Sharewood Guide I have collected the best free web site creation services to create a web site without knowing HTML.

Web site creators are free, user-friendly services that don't require you to go through a difficult process of code writing to create and organize the layout of your web pages. You simply register (where needed), choose a name for your new web site, and edit all your content through a visual interface.

Here below the set of key basic characteristics that I have utilized to compare these tools so that you can easily find the one that best suits your needs:

  1. Registration: If needed, you have to provide your personal information to utilize the service
  2. Flash - Widgets Support: If present, you can embed multimedia objects like flash movies or widgets
  3. Ready-Made Templates: Allows you to select a pre-made look for your web site
  4. SEO Friendly: Creates friendly URLs for easier indexing into search engines
  5. RSS Support: Enables users to be updated when you add new content to your web site

Here the best free web site creators I have found out there (if you know of other ones, please help me out by adding them in the comment area at the end):
