Many people who are connected to the Internet only have one smartphone without a personal computer. While some libraries and internet cafes offer free PC access, it is easier when you have access to the tools you need at any time. If you want to start a website, the services we are going to talk about here are fully functional mobile web apps that allow you to build, publish and edit your site entirely from your phone.
The good part about doing everything online is that your work is saved with the service you use, so if you need to make more detailed changes on a public computer, you can log in to your account and continue working.
GoDaddy's website builder works directly from their website. They have many themes available – which you can edit each part of – and have previews for mobile and desktop versions of the site. Don't expect complete customization or an exceptional mobile experience, but it's pretty easy to make your page look the way you want with a little tweaking.
You can edit each element to change the style, add new sections to each page and set
They even have a pretty basic blog solution to easily update content as can be placed on a separate page.
WordPress is the king of online blogs, perfect for websites that need regularly updated content, and they also have a mobile editor. The standard theme is basic and clean but can be adapted or replaced with any other WordPress theme. Managing pages is easy, and the post editor is quite equipped for a mobile app.
Publishing your site is also easy; We had a basic blog set up in less than ten minutes.
They offer basic free hosting and a free .wordpress.com domain. The free site will be WordPress-labeled. Paying for a plan removes the brand and gets you a premium domain.
Weebly's mobile editor uses a built-in app that you can download from the App or Google Play Store, which means you can edit your site while you're offline and then publish the changes when you return online. They focus on e-commerce and are free for basic websites, but require you to pay monthly if you want to sell products on your site.
