    I’ve been playing around with the free options of simplesite for a year now. I’ve half made a few sites and deleted them but I think I have found something I’m comfortable with website wise. Simple?Β  Yes. Professional? Not by any means. Lol. With this being my first serious attempt at building any kind of site or blog I’ts been a learning experience that’s for sure and simplesite is just that, a simple site. For newbies and beginners like me, I think simplesite is a great starting place to gain experience as well as experiment to get a grasp on what you want and don’t want or need with a site/blog builder. Alot of other company’s offer all of these “upgrades” and “extras” that really are unnecessary for a blogger like me. Yes, themes are simple but your content should outshine that. If some one complains about your “outdated theme” that tells you they are not visiting your site to read your content but to find flaws anywhere they see fit and can take that elsewhere in my opinion. As far as editing, you said you could not go back and fix a mistake? I do, I just load my site editor click where I need to edit and take care of my issue and I can do it all from my Android which is a big plus for me!I only have a couple small complaints, I don’t like that I can’t add some desired plug in’s but I use Canva and design as close to a plug in as I can get and then add it to my simplesite page. Still completely free!Also, I’m not sure if I can use the domain name I have purchased from Godaddy with my simplesite. But those are really my only complaints.It offers a nice free site builder that may be simple but it’s a starting point!I am looking into opening a small 5 product ecommerce store, with the free plan of course and will post my review of my experience with it as well.As of right now my review is only from the perspective of a newbie blogger with little to no experience with other platforms. I have tried Wix and WordPress but I have zero knowledge and a heavy lack of coding skills to be able to manuever anything complicated that’s why I like simplesite. Thanks for your review and reading mine and if you want a good read go check out http://fkingfaded.simplesite.com/444856554Tell me what you think!Much thanks, Jena

    Worst web hosting service I have ever done business with. The site templates are cheap and plain looking. Their customer service sucks and is slow to say the least. And they black mail you by shutting down your website soon after you pay them, forcing you to pay more to bring the website back online. They are a fraudulent service. Already taking steps to go to another company that is United States based, and doesn’t defraud their customers repeatedly. My advice to everyone else, look elsewhere for your web hosting services.

      The designs of simple site are nice but after paying for it, there was not a big difference. It is said you have hundreds of designs in the PRO version. It is not true. The platform has a lot of problems. I could not upload videos or images after paying. The platform does not have the option to link the Social media pages. It does not offer the option to have the webpage in different languages.

      I was really disappointed after paying for it.

      My site is in Wix. It was already designed but needed to look more professional, pictures rearranged, and some overall tweaking. Someone was recommended to me and I tried working w/ her. I emailed her a list of about 20 things to do – mainly pretty easy things, but every time she fixed something she never checked it to see that she had caused another problem, e.g., moved a picture which I wanted her to do, but covered up textwith the picture which I didnt want her to do. Added info that I didnt ask for and when I asked for it to be removed said Wix adds it and she couldnt change it. I found Bob Hansen at Bob@simplesitecompany.com He assigned Thomas Moore to help me and Thomas fixed EVERY problem that had been created quickly, professionally and with a GREAT attitude. I am so thankful because my website represented me and my company and the first person didnt seem to care at all. Just left me w/ a mess and went out of town for two weeks, saying she wouldnt be reachable while gone! Unbelievable.

        Read all the comments about Simplesite.com. Doesn’t want to make me run and use it. Can you please share a service or two that you feel are the best for creating a website/blog. Many thanks.

            I decided to pay to have an upgraded site/access. Still love my Simplesite.The only thing I wish it had was the ability for me to search for items I’ve posted. Ie: I have about 140 poems in there and aside from the list within the Site Building which is only about 15 entries per page, I cannot search anywhere by keyword to help me find a specific poem faster. πŸ™
