Full Answer

Weebly went into business in 2006 and was founded by Chris Fanini, Dan Veltri and David Rusenko while they were attending Pennsylvania State University. The site debuted its WYSIWYG in-browser interface in 2007. It initially did not have the ability to directly edit HTML and CSS, but it has since added this feature. Weebly was listed as one of TIME Magazine's 50 Best Websites of 2007, and it has been featured in a number of major media outlets.

On Weeby, free websites are limited in size and features. Websites are given a subdomain initially, but a domain name can be purchased through Weebly or imported from another registrar. The site has tools that allow the user to create simple blogs and e-commerce functions through Paypal, Stripe and Authorize.net. Total file storage space is unlimited, but there are restrictions on the size of individual files. The site also has Android and iPhone apps that allow users to check their site statistics from mobile devices. Premium paid plans include Starter, Pro and Business, each of which comes with different features.
