Whether you were a developer or an average person who wish to create and run his website, a decade ago, it wasn’t a simple task. And, everyone was looking for a simple tool that can do the job on automation. In the current era, where WordPress is dominating the website builder script race, many HTML5 website builders are available.
A decade ago, there wasn’t any better builder available which can create a decent looking website. And now, there are many builders available which are all promising to deliver better results, and thus, it is hard for us to find out the best ones.
12 Free HTML5 Website Builders
Getting over with the dilemma straight, here is the compilation of best free HTML5 website builders. You can pick any of the below-mentioned builders, and I am pretty sure that you are going to like the experience with each of them.
Every tool will allow you to select a layout, upload images, change header and titles and upload your content or update the existing one. In short, the front-end design is entirely customizable, but keep the requirements on your side limited, since none of these tools can create a 100% customizable website like WordPress or Joomla does.

This is the first and the best tool out there which can help you begin with instantly. You can choose a template of your choice or start with the default one. In very few clicks and after typing the content you want, the website is ready.

Opening the website, clicking on Try Me button at the centre and there you go. You are right into the builder i.e. writing the content and selecting apps for skins which you want to be part of. The UI is very simple and everything looks elegant.
This particular tool got millions of users and I am sure you are also going to join them. Clicking on Start Now button and creating a new account using the email address and a set of the password can begin the tool and the only thing left is to set the things up according to your likeness.
I personally liked this tool as it offers almost every feature which are required to make a website. The process is little long but yet simple. Select a template, edit few things and make changes as you like, add your content, select few customization like the background image, icons, fonts and border designs and there you go. It also comes in the premium version.
The tool can be started of using Facebook or normal email ID and password sign up the process and once you are done with it, you get into a well-featured and reviewed HTML based website builder. You can understand how good it is by knowing the fact that it has been featured in almost every top notch tech website and magazine.
This builder works at simple three steps, choosing a template, adding content and customizing design elements. This is just like any other in our list but still it works differently because of a different set of templates, customization elements and more importantly the elegance of the tool’s design.
A 15 pages website is free to create using the three step HTML builder but if you want to go anything bigger, you need to pay a price. The free one works responsive for website and tablet, but it doesn’t work for smartphones and feature phones.
The reason why this tool is worthy is it offers drag and drop feature. This makes everything easy because you don’t need to choose or put things. You can do those easily by dragging and dropping at the right place. The rest of the things are all same.
This tool comes with a user interface like MS Word and offers better text customization than any other tool I have added above. The tool allows to add Google Analytics (a tool which helps to keep track of traffic on your site), create hidden pages and also embed a flash game.
This tool offers the kind of same HTML builder as any of the above, but it does offer additional features as add-ons. These add-ons can help you bring any kind of possible additional functionality or design element. Most importantly, the site built is responsive and thus works fine even on mobile devices.
The tool’s user interface is the best feature in here which is because there is everything on a single page. You can pick things from the bottom bar, drag them and drop anywhere you want to put them. This is how simple it is to create a website.
The UI sometimes look simple, but some places are really confusing. This is how I can describe this tool. If you are interested then I recommend trying on your own. It will not be that hard to start, you just have to create a new account and login.
Over to you

HTML5 is the latest version of one of the oldest website building programming language and apparently it is dominating the web space. To be honest, I am not sure which particular one out of the above all is the best (number one), as every one has its pros and cons.
I know you have a lot of questions to ask. Start firing them up in the discussion section and I will try my best to come up with a working solution ASAP.
