IM-Creator: Build awesome HTML5 sites for free

A few years ago, it was tough to create a professional-looking website without designing and coding something from scratch. There were free templates and website builders, sure, but the results from most were less than professional. Not exactly how you want to represent yourself or your work to the world.

That’s all changed in more recent years. Now, if you need a simple site for yourself or your work, there are a ton of options available to you. And one of the best options I’ve seen is IM-Creator.

Why is IM-Creator so good? Well, there are a few reasons. First of all, it’s free. And who doesn’t love free?

Second of all, the templates offered by IM-Creator are excellent. They’re modern, stylish, and professional. A lot of website creators play it very safe with their templates, but IM-Creator isn’t afraid to take some risks. Their templates are not only well-designed, but they’re also modern and unique.

There are templates for artists, fashion and beauty, musicians, hotels, architects, personal sites, general business, web designers, restaurant, photography, portfolios, real estate, and much more. There are 100s of designer-made templates, all of which are incredibly flexible and can be customized.

Here are just a few examples of the templates you can choose from:

IM-Creator is the first website creator built with HTML5. Templates are customized with a drag-and-drop editor, with no programming required. Of course, if you’d rather not use a template, you can build a site completely from scratch.

Getting started is easy. Just choose a design (or start from scratch). There are new templates being published every month. The templates are provided in an “almost-done” state, so you can have your new site up and running quickly.

Next, just customize your site. Insert text, pictures, videos, and whatever other content you might want. Just click on the element you want to edit and you’ll get a contextual menu showing your options. Your content is automatically adapted to the existing design, so it’s hassle-free.

Once all of your customizations have been done, you can publish it to a new or existing domain. And IM-Creator makes it easy to update, maintain, and promote your site once it’s live.

The free I-M account gives you a free i-m.co subdomain and 50Mb of hosting. You get access to all of their templates, of course. Premium accounts start at just $5.95/month (if you sign up for 3 years) and let you have your own domain name, unlimited hosting, and a customized email account. There are also Pro accounts for professional web designers and resellers that include all of the Premium features but work with multiple domains.

As a web designer, IM-Creator makes it easy for your to provide better solutions for your clients. You can design basic sites quickly and easily, and then give your clients the tools to manage and update their sites themselves. Designers can also submit their designs to the IM-Creator catalog, and get paid each time their designs are used.

Need a mobile site? IM-Creator has a new mobile site creator, IXM, that makes it simple to get started. Their mobile templates are just as great as their desktop templates, with designs that are modern and professional. These are designs you’re not going to see anywhere else, and are a huge upgrade from all of the boring, bland mobile sites out there.

IXM makes it easy to check out these templates on your mobile device before you get started. Just scan the QR code for the design with your mobile phone and get an instant, functional preview.

    This really is not very helpful as you cannot download the html if you want to host elsewhere.

      Couldn’t you view the site and then view source to download it? Sort of a pain in the ass but not impossible.

      you can actually download the html and host it on your servers – imc lets u do that

      • Iacobus Vidit

    There are few other good tools for the job: http://www.webs.com, http://www.edicy.com and http://www.wix.com

    Allowing people to create websites for free without the knowledge of code is certainly very entertaining and helpful to those that don’t know code.

    But then again, I don’t really like using these editors (personal preference) since it destroys the need to know some basic HTML and CSS, and I strongly feel that knowing some HTML will be good for almost anyone right now in the internet world.

    I’d love to hear your opinion about using the editors, never hurt to hear from another point of view!

    wow – great templates. look so modern in comparison to the outdated crap that’s out there… builder is intuitive too – like a powerpoint sheet :)

    I agree IM Creator is a good option especially given the quality of their designs and the ability to create a website very fast. However, I also think their websites lack depth and their support options are on the poor side. I’d personally recommend website builders like SquareSpace and Virb far before IM Creator.
