How to create a site with Jimdo's online website builder
Create a website or online shop, even if you're a beginner! This guide will show you how.
Create a free Jimdo account
Signing up with Jimdo is completely free. You don't need to provide a credit card or sign up for a subscription until you're ready. Give the website builder a try, commitment-free, then decide on the paid plan that's right for you.
Answer a few questions about your business
In the next step, the website builder will ask you a few questions about your business or your project. This will help us put together a website that has all the pieces you need, automatically.
For example, we'll ask you the name of your business, what industry or topic you cover, and other basic details about the website you'd like to build. You can also connect your Facebook page to your website to import photos and info even faster.
Then, we'll help you choose designs, fonts, and color combinations. Based on the information you provide, our smart system will set up your website, complete with pages, photos, and text.
Customize the website so it's just how you want it
We'll set things up, but you're always in control of your website. You can edit or make changes any time you want. Just click on the text you want to change and start writing. Add or swap out pictures, and adjust your design settings so that your website reflects you and your business. You can even choose a logo.
Upload your own photos from your computer or phone, or import them straight from your social media accounts. You can also choose high-quality photos from our huge image library. Our stock images are royalty-free and free for you to use to make your website look great.
Do you want additional text, images, or other content for your site? Just click the "Add Block" button and choose the piece you need. From music playlists to booking tools to photo galleries, each part is easy to add and ready to go.
Add new website pages
Organize your website just how you like by adding and arranging website pages. Just open the “Pages” menu and click on the plus sign. Keep your website navigation menu short and simple to make it easy for visitors to follow. Add a page, then set it up just how you want without any coding or guesswork.
Optimize your site for search engines
Want Google and other search engines to be able to find you? Our automatic search engine optimization does the heavy lifting for you. We make it easy and quick to register your website with Google, and we'll help with behind-the-scenes optimization tools so that the right customers and visitors can find you.

Jimdo Website Builder vs. CMS: what's the difference?
What's right for you—website builder or content management system (CMS)? We want you to choose the best fit, so here are some of the differences side-by-side:
Try our website builder free of charge. Then add an affordable paid plan when you're ready for a domain and more features.
You'll likely need to pay a professional web designer to create the website, and then pay extra for hosting and domains.
Our smart design system helps you create your website with just a few clicks. Everything is prepared for you, so it's great for beginners.
A traditional CMS has lots of options, but you start from scratch. It can take days or weeks to build your site.
SEO & Statistics
Automatic SEO helps your customers find you on Google without a lot of effort. And you can check your visitor numbers any time with our built-in statistics.
You might need coding skills or professional help to improve your search engine optimization. And tracking statistics usually only work with additional tools.
