Build and host a website for free. Using trusted providers like GitHub, Netlify, & Vercel.


What is Yax?

An open source project that helps people build websites. Yax is the do-it-yourself alternative to commercial site builders like Wix, Squarespace, & WebFlow.


Try Yax! Save a template to GitHub. Then deploy to Netlify, Vercel, or Render.com for free hosting. No developer skills needed.


Yes, templates are free, storage is free, hosting and custom domains are free. Now compare to commercial website builders like Wix where "free" costs money if you add a custom domain and remove branding.


Support the project by subscribing to our tutorials! Learn how to set up a custom domain for free. How to build a Yax template. How to build web components without frameworks or build tools. And much more.


Watch as we grow. Currently 18 templates.


Follow @yaxdotcom on Instagram for announcements about our templates and tutorials.


Visit the Yax blog for template reviews, recommendations, and more. Learn about our history and our plans as we build in public.
