Here are 8 of the best free Weebly apps to help you start building your website with Weebly or give your existing Weebly website a little pizzazz.
In this post, we list 8 of the best free Weebly apps (plus 1 bonus app) I’ve used over the years to improve the websites I’ve worked on. All of the apps are easy to install and easy to use.
Best of all, they are FREE.
1) Column Lock - Weebly App
The Column Lock app allows you to force Weebly columns either inline or to stay put, when screen size changes. This is especially useful for smaller screens, such as mobile phones.
Typically, the responsive themes used by Weebly will reorder website elements to ensure they look good and fit on all devices, no matter the screen size.
However, there are times when this doesn’t make sense or you just don’t want your website to work that way. The Column Lock app can help you with this.

I've been using GoDaddy for over a decade. It's one of the oldest and and most popular domain registrars, and for good reason.
The Importance of Choosing the Correct Domain Registrar
For starters, pricing is highly competitive. You can often get a significant discount on the first year of your registration, steeper discounts if registered for a longer period, and can usually find some great promo codes and discounts with a quick internet search (RetailMeNot, Coupons.com, and GoDaddy themselves to name a few).
Variety of Extensions & a Powerful Interface
GoDaddy also offers a wide variety of domain extension and has a very powerful interface to customize your domain and modify settings. If you are a shopper who likes to compare multiple options, Domain.com, BlueHost, and HostGator are also widely used and popular domain registrars worth researching.
Having a powerful interface to modify settings is crucial, and thus, why choosing the right domain registrar is extremely important.
Real Life Example
I'll give you an example of what happened to me recently to illustrate my point; I had been tasked with setting up a business phone system for a client that had already purchased a domain. In fact, the client had purchased a website builder plan and in addition, a domain name and business email service. The domain and email service, however, were part of a re-seller plan, and although convenient initially, I quickly realized the pitfalls.
The major downside was not having a powerful interface to modify the settings needed to implement the business phone system. Because the client did not start the process by purchasing the domain from a reputable and robust registrar, I had to transfer the domain and email service to their originating companies (away from the re-seller, and yes, a headache as well as time consuming), wait 24 hours for propagation and then restart the process of implementing the business phone system.
The bottom line, choosing the right and reputable domain registrar is of utmost importance and why I highly recommend GoDaddy. If you're starting a business, that should be one of your first steps, then you'll be able to utilize their interface to hook up, add, and link to additional services your business may need down the road.
