Ten years ago, Webs was founded by three brothers–Zeki, Haroon, and Idris Mokhtarzada–to  give people an easy way to create their own websites.

The Mokhtarzadas didn’t just want to develop a simple DIY site-building tool: they wanted to develop a simple DIY site-building tool that created truly attractive, original, and well-organized sites. In 2001, such a tool didn’t even exist! But it was clearly needed. Forty million sites have been built with Webs over the past decade.

A lot of amazing things have happened since 2001, from product innovation to Series A funding to switching the company’s name from “Freewebs” to “Webs.” We’ll be celebrating the company’s evolution from a tiny startup to the most popular site-building solution all month long.

On this blog, you’ll find fun facts about Webs and video interviews with the founders.

Today we are starting a month-long celebration of this amazing milestone the best way we know how – with a ONE DAY SALE! ORDER NOW!

For 24 Hours ONLY — buy a new, annual Premium subscription and Save up to 50% off the regular price!

So keep an eye on this blog, because later in the month we’ll be announcing a giveaway with 10 super prizes as a way to thank you, our wonderful customers. Without you, Webs would never have made it to the 10-year mark.

Thank you!

    Happy birhday to you WEBS, it’s not easy to reach such age you may have faced lots of troubles even though you didn’t give up. Well done.

    My story is very simple and it maybe just another story, back in 2009 my first son was born and before that I have been looking for a simple way of sharing the coming of my lilttle boy as you can imagine, a first son is and will always be the first.

    While surfing the net I came up with WEBS.COM, after a couple of days I decided to use it, I found it very easy and simple to upload my staff although the storage offered is very low but your services are fantastic.

    From then on I have created my son’s WEBS site, it’s a place were I upload and publish pictures of my kids growing process, I write a diary and a photo diary of his growing, I post videos and share them with my friends and relatives. Your services made diference to me, whenever I feel like seeying my kid I just click on kennedycossa.webs.com just to see him while working or on the go.

    My friends and relatives abroad are happy with the site because they can access it and follow my son’s growing. There’s no doubt your services are five stars rated by me.

    For the teenth aniversary, congratulations. Keep it up!

    Happy Brithday, FreeWEBS!!

    10 is a good number! Well done!

    Thank you for the opportunity to go online for free which’s been and, still is, essential for our society! We’re several friends who try and hope we’re helping young people in our country to find out what a great knowledge and practice our great people have left us to use and to spread. As soon as we can afford I’ll upgrade!

    Recently I wrote you about the Cyrillic letters. The truth is that I looked round but, I didn’f find another site to move to!

    Nothing succeeds like success! God bless!
