Your website is your identity

Whether building a personal website, or one for your group, organisation, or business, it’s a reflection of who you are and what you represent. Don’t just accept a standardized template that’s used by thousands of others, or suffer at the hands of inflexible layouts; make your site your own with Freeway Express.

The complete package

Set your sights high. Freeway Express has what you need to create your perfect website — HTML5 as standard, e-commerce integration, Blogger™ templates, email newsletters, luscious galleries, custom forms, visitor comments, social media buttons, and so much more. And the best thing? It's completely free!

Unleash your creativity

Every element in Freeway Express is fully editable. It doesn’t matter if you’re starting from a blank canvas or using one of the many pre-installed templates, you can be confident you can create exactly what you want.

You can move items to any position on the page: duplicate, align, and distribute items, and use Master pages for common content.
