Happy Birthday: Jimdo Turns 6

Update: List of JimdoPro subscription winners


Today is a day for celebration. Raise your glasses, everyone, and let's give a toast to Jimdo.


Exactly six years ago today, Jimdo was founded by Christian, Matthias, and Fridtjof. About 3,163,680 minutes have passed since then, and millions of Jimdo sites have been created. In fact, more than two Jimdo sites have been created every single minute since the day Jimdo was founded. 


A lot has happened in the world of Jimdo over the years. Naturally the product itself has gotten better and better, and new features are added all the time. We've also moved our headquarters a couple of times — after starting out in a small farmhouse in Luedingworth, we feel quite luxurious in our four-story office building in Hamburg. 117 people (and 5 dogs!) work together, eat together, and play together in that office. We've also spread around the globe, and our team now has offices in San Francisco, Tokyo, and Shanghai. 


One thing is for sure: We couldn't have done it without you. These six years have been incredible because you have been incredible. These six years have seen Jimdo spread around the globe because you spread the word. These six years have been the best of our lives, and we're so happy that you have been there to support us. Thank you for everything.


To say thanks for the past six years, we are going to give away four one-year subscriptions to JimdoPro. All you have to do is leave a comment below before February 24, 2013 — make sure that you leave some way for us to get in touch with you if you win! Everyone can participate, even people who have never used Jimdo before, so pass this post along to friends and family who have been thinking about starting a website.


And, as a second thank you, we're adding a new layout to JimdoFree today: F4222. This layout features a large header section and has the sidebar on the bottom. We're excited to see what sort of sites you make with this new layout.


Happy birthday, Jimdo. Here's to the next six — or hopefully sixty — years!

    I've used Jimdo since day 1. Since then, I've done a dozen websites using Jimdo. I think it's the most flexible, easy to learn and intuitive web builder structure around.

    I discovered Jimdo in October and I'm in LOVE. This is exactly what I was looking for. A FUN and EASY web site builder that doesn't cost a fortune. I'm raving to all my friends. I'm trying to find freelance work building Jimdo websites.

    As a school teacher trying to initiate a place to promote positive reintegration for my incarcerated Juvenile students I needed a company that could offer something great in a user-friendly language I could understand. Basically, that's all I was looking for, and with a single Google search I found the "Top 10". I spent time looking at the first five and wasn't impressed with any of them. I went back to the main search page and found a blog about starting a website, I read through it and found the word Jimdo and clicked on the link. It is now a couple of hours later and I have scoured over every inch of your website and I must say...I am truly IMPRESSED!!! Not only did I discover an uplifting place to create a website but also a company that cares not only about its customers but its employees and the environment as well! A place where brain cell expansion is encouraged, promoted and rewarded by its leaders! A place whose founders understand the empowerment that a BIG small company can have. Jimdo sounds like a totally happening company filled with good vibes, creative energy and the passion to do the right thing! My search ended with Jimdo and I am looking forward to doing business with you all for many anniversaries to come!

    My library was looking for a new platform for our website. I explored many and found Jimdo. It is a versatile and easy to use site. I can set it up and do most of the updating and layout myself. It looks good and it is affordable which is important for a small, rural public library. Happy Birthday! And many more to come!

    In the past, I have attempted to build websites using WordPress, Go Daddy, iPage, Wix, and others. I often found the templates lacking and the process cumbersome. After reading www.websitetooltester.com review of Jimdo and checking it out, I'm am really looking forward to building a new website for our ecommerce site!

    Happy Birthday to Jimdo!
