Creating a website online allows people to let the world know about them, their expertise, hobbies, interests and even their lives. Not all websites require investments; in fact, many of them don't. Creating a free website online can be done within a matter of minutes.

Step 1

Visit the Webs website. (See references.)

Step 2

Type in your desired website address on the home page. Choose a password and click "Create a Website."

Step 3

Finish creating your account by entering your username, password, site title, email, birth year, country and gender.

Step 4

Select a website template to use on your site. There are dozens of templates to use. You can even conduct a search in order to find one that fits your needs.

Step 5

Read and agree to the Webs terms of use and click "Create my Site."

Step 6

Select the Basic Package. Click on "Start Building on My Own" and click "Continue." Wait for the Site Builder to load.

Step 7

Begin adding content to your website by clicking in the box that says, "Add your main content here." Change the font, size and effects by using the text tools at the top of the page.

Step 8

Add photos, video, add-ons and links to your site by clicking on the green buttons at the top of the navigation area.

Step 9

Click on "Page Options" in order to change the background image, add background music or protect your page with a password.
