Anyone can use Jimdo to create a website with no coding knowledge required. In addition to JimdoPro and JimdoBusiness, we have always offered JimdoFree, which makes Jimdo websites available to even more people. Jimdo has been used to create more than 8 million websites, many of them JimdoFree websites built by bloggers, charities, clubs, families, and people who simply want to share something with the world.
In exchange for a free website, we place a small white box on every JimdoFree site to help spread the word about Jimdo. We think a small white box gets in the way of your content, so we're making our JimdoFree advertisement even less noticeable.
Boxes are for squaresStarting today, the box is being removed from all JimdoFree websites, and we're moving the Jimdo advertisement to the footer to make more room for your content. Even better, we've added a special version of the ad for websites with dark backgrounds so that it blends in.
We're really happy about this change. We know that the best way to spread the word about Jimdo is to do what's best for our customers, and getting rid of the white box is the right choice. If you like this change, tell a friend to try out Jimdo—your recommendation is the best advertising we could ask for.
If you ever want to go completely ad free, consider upgrading to JimdoPro or JimdoBusiness—but if you don't want to upgrade, that's alright too. JimdoFree will stay free forever.
