How to build a website for free

Simple.ink can help you build your own website with many advantages. Let's look at the best ones: it's free, you don't have to code anything and you don't have to worry about any maintenance at all.

Whether you want a personal website, an eCommerce website, a one page website, or anything else, Simple.ink can help you do that without any cost. Your website's URL will sound something like 'you.simple.ink', and if you want to have a look at the paid version, you can get a domain that sounds something like 'you.com'. Be the first to get a cool domain name!

We're building all of the websites with the help of Notion. Thanks to Notion's easy interface, you can easily build your website just by dragging and dropping your preferred blocks and see them on your live website.

Though, if you don't want to start from nothing, we've got you covered with a lot of free website templates. Have a look at these templates, click you favourite one, and hit 'Duplicate' in Notion to make it yours! Oh, and you can absolutely make changes to that template - give it a bit of your touch if you want to!

3. Go live

Upon waiting the 60 seconds, your awesome website is now live! That was really the whole process.

Why build a website in Notion?

We think that there are quite a few reasons why you should build your website with Simple.ink and Notion.

Guides to learn from

Simple.ink provides guides for any type of website that we teach how to build. Check out the library of guides if you want to learn how to build other sorts of websites in Notion. We try our best to make these guides easily understandable for everybody, as we all deserve to know how to build these free websites.

Clean links

If you've used Notion before, you may know how the app generates lengthy URLs - in most cases, these links are pretty hard to recall. As mentioned at the top of the article, your free website will either have a 'you.simple.ink' URL or a 'you.com' URL if you're looking at the paid version.

Work with your team

Want more people to help you build the website? Well, that can be done for free as well. Thanks to Notion, you can invite more people to help you build the websites. Go to the top-right corner of the Notion page, hit "Share" and follow the easy steps to send an invite to your friends so they'd help you build the website.

Do I need to know how to code?
Not at all! Simple.ink takes care of everything so that you can build, upgrade and maintain your website without having to know how to code. It's faster, more effective and leaner than going for the manual route of setting up a website.

If you know how to code, you can make use of that, but it's not required.
Do I need a paid Notion plan to use Simple.ink?
Not at all! You can use the free plan of Notion and still use Simple.ink to its full potential.
What counts as a website?
One website will mean one domain and all its subpages. Whether that's a subdomain with us (e.g. you.simple.ink), or a custom domain of yours (e.g. you.com), that's one plan.

Got multiple custom domains? You'll need a paid plan for each one.
