Web Design

Can I design a website without knowing code?

Yes, you can design a website today without knowing any code with today’s tools. Here’s how:

Drag & Drop Editors

There’s a bunch of drag & drop solutions out there like Squarespace and Wix that allow you to easily create websites just like you would create a newsletter using a publishing application. The benefits of this approach is that you don’t need to know any code at all.

Content Management Systems

Some content management systems like WordPress are fairly easy to install and update without knowing any HTML, CSS or JavaScript at all. For example, if you set up a blog at, you’ll be using the WordPress content management system, but not have to code at all. You can also get drag & drop page builders like SiteOrigin’s Page Builder that allow you to build pages visually.

Learn to code yourself

If you think JavaScript is what baristas write on the side of your cup at the local coffee house, you can always learn some of the basics of web design yourself. Learning can get you up to speed with a basic understanding of the code used for websites.
