What website solution would suit my organisation?

 

A relatively straightforward way to build a basic website is to use a free package that will provide you with a template web design and a web content management system (CMS).

  • Having a design for your website means that you have decided on the visual appearance and layout of the site.
  • Having a CMS means that you have a way of updating and editing the content that appears on your website.

The following are examples of these free services that provide both a design and a CMS as part of their package:

Freesites 
Webs 
Weebly 
Yola 

Alternatively, you can use a standalone CMS. This would mean that you would have to use a standalone template design, or create your own design.

Some examples of free standalone CMSes are:

WordPress 
Joomla 
Drupal 

If you want to build a more complex website, you will need to either hire a web professional or web professionals with skills in web design and web development, or possess those skills yourself.
