Weebly for Education is Perfect for You and Your Students

Weebly is perfect for creating classroom websites, student e-portfolios, and websites for assigned projects. Our drag & drop website editor is stunningly simple to use, and appropriate for use with students of all ages. Weebly enables your students to express themselves creatively using a variety of multimedia features, all within a protected environment that you control. Weebly was named one of TIME's 50 Best Websites of the year, and here's why:

Start creating your site in seconds!

Easy, Drag & Drop Website Editor

Our core advantage is our stunningly easy drag & drop website editor. Videos, pictures, maps, and text are added by simply dragging them to your website. We love it when new customers are totally surprised at how straightforward it is to build a website with Weebly – no HTML or technical skills required!

A Managed, Protected Environment for Your Students

With Weebly, you can password protect all your students' websites with one click. We understand that privacy is extremely important to teachers, students, and parents. You have full control over which websites are public, which are private, and which can be edited by the student. It's simple to bulk create new student accounts and oversee your students' activity.

Powerful Multimedia Features

If you can imagine it, you can do it with Weebly. Add pictures, videos, audio players, documents, maps, and photo galleries easily by dragging and dropping. Use Weebly's unbranded audio and video players so that you and your students do not need to venture out to YouTube or similar services to add high quality audio & video to your sites.

Flexible Blogging Features

Post class updates, homework assignments, and news for parents using our super slick blogging features. Blogs are also great for students to express their thoughts and receive comments from others. Weebly supports an unlimited number of blogs within your website, with full comment moderation features allowing an open, moderated, or closed conversation.

It’s Free

It is completely free to create and publish a website with Weebly. Our service has always been, and always will be free. So, how is Weebly supported? Weebly has optional Pro account features for just $39.95 per year, and we offer add-on packs of student accounts (10 accounts for $10) if your needs exceed the 40 accounts that are included. That's it! We've heavily discounted our education services; should you choose to upgrade, we really appreciate your support!

No Advertising

We don't place advertising on your site, and never will. Some "free" website providers force advertising to be placed on your site, but you don't need to worry about that with Weebly.

70+ Beautiful Designs (or Customize Your Own)

Deciding on a look for your website couldn't be easier. We have dozens of beautiful designs to choose from and add more regularly. Want to bring your own? You can completely customize the template of your site, or build your own with HTML & CSS, right in the Weebly editor.

Hosting Included – No Restrictions

We provide the hosting so you don’t need to pay for a hosting provider. We don’t impose arbitrary bandwidth restrictions, storage caps or limits on the number of pages allowed, either. The Weebly service is fully available online, so there is nothing for you to install or configure. Our hosting infrastructure is backed by an army of servers that provide reliable stability for your websites – all for free!

Publish to Your Own Domain

If you already own your own domain, you can set it up to work with your Weebly site. You have three options when it comes to choosing an address for your site: 1) You can choose to publish your website to a free sub-domain of Weebly.com (http://Weebly.com), 2) you can purchase a domain directly from Weebly which we instantly set up with your site, or 3) you can configure a domain that you already own to work with your Weebly site (we'll show you how to do this).

And We're Just Getting Started!

We're only scratching the surface of everything Weebly has to offer. There are countless other features we don't have room to mention here that you'll have to discover for yourself. You've made it this far – what are you waiting for?
