    I love this, my free webpage handles a lot of costumers from my accounting business and I can put examples of my work on my site. I think that this website maker is awesome, every time I think of something to add to my site I find it, thanks!

    • Jack

      You know what I think its cool the fact that is a free webpage and you can do anything you want to it, my site keeps growing and I use this website maker to just make it look more professional, I added the Excel sheet in like 2 minutes.

      • Stuart

        I agree that is really cool that it is a free webpage, there is no need to be contacting the webmaster to fix or add anything because really you are the webmaster.

  • Clara B.

    Creating business websites is very simple using this free website creator, I finished mine a few months ago and I added another page just to post excel documents to use as reference for my visitors, I had a bit of trouble at first because I was using another cloud source but as soon as I loaded it on skydrive it was very easy, plus you can just go ahead and edit it online (if you want to change anything on your file)

    • Jessica

      Good for you, I´ve also learned a lot using this website maker and it has been a lot of help, I can say my site looks pro and I didn´t have to hire anyone to do it for me.

  • Joseph Craig

    This will make my site more useful and informative for visitors, there are som docs I used to send but now I´ll be able to have them right there, this website maker is great to improve anyone´s website.

  • Phillip

    This was a very easy process and it actually looks really good on my site, I have absolutely no experience in website building and I was able to add the excel page on my site with no problema at all.

    • John Hue

      I agree with you, I think it was easy, my free webpage helps me show my students how to work on excel formulas and having the excel sheet there really gives them the complete idea, I teach Microsoft Office courses and I believe tools like this makes any free website just perfect.

  • Jan Lorentti

    I never imagined you could embed an excel document into a free webpage, this is very useful, I am studying to get my MBA and we are sharing our homeworks on a free website I created, great tutorial, thanks!

  • Rosemary

    I didn´t even know this was possible, at last I found a way I can share changes on the graphics I work on for my business, website building used to be just for professionals, now anyone can do it and that helps a lot to people who also work online.

    • Brandon L.

      I use excel to create my graphics also cause you can edit them at any time and get the expected result right away, I even sent this code to other colleagues and they were able to post the same sheet on their site, we just started creating business websites to show our work and this was perfect.

  • Charly

    If you read the tutorial you will see that you don’t need to be a professional website maker to do this, is very simple and it is extremely useful. I like the fact that you can edit your excel file directly and it is saved automatically, plus that means you can edit it from any computer and you don´t need to have your file in your hard drive.

    • Clark.Isiscorp

      So true, I am not, by any means, a professional website maker, but this website builder is the best, it is simple to use and makes my work very easy, I have a business website to post my work and editing my pages is quick and simple, if you read the rest of the tutorials you will find that all the tools they recommend here are as easy to use as this one, I really like that because I have no time to sit down and try to “learn coding” I just click and save, the best kind of website building.

  • Flor Grin

    You guys have the best tutorials for anyone who is creating business websites, easy to read and follow. I have to be honest though, at first I was kind of disappointed when I saw you were recommending skydrive because I don’t use hotmail emails anymore, but what do you know you can use the email you have now!! I use gmail and the account was easy to set up. My site keeps growing and now I have a section of excel tutorials and this fits like a glove!

  • Brittany

    I wanted to know if by doing this process I can also show graphics from excel and how it can be done. I´m new in this website building thing, but having this is really important for my website´s purpose, than you very much.

    • Clark

      I´m a regular user of the computer just as you, and I understand that it is possible to show a graphic, in the process shown above there is a step in which you generate a code that corresponds to a book, so if the book shows a graphic it should appear on your site. I hope this helps you, creating business websites is not easy but now is possible and definitely not hard at all.

  • Fox.Arely

    I am falling in love with this online website maker software, I have not found any restriction for editing my site and adding components like the excel docs has made my life really simple. The tutorials are great and this html website builder makes your ideas come to life.

  • Cheril Nelson

    For anybody creating business websites this tool is very important, most people don´t know you can actually embed an excel sheet in any page of your website and doing so is very simple.

  • Shelly M.

    I have found that this online website maker software is the best online, I have tried different ones but I am always limited in someway, right now I am working on my second free website using Iconosites and I am very pleased with the result, this one looks even better than my first free website.

  • David Rogers

    I´ve found the benefits of this application in the last week, I´ve been able to publish really important data on my site that will make my sales grow for sure, I´m glad I started using this online website maker software like two months ago, I ´ve been able to improve my sites look and performance a lot and in a short amount of time.

  • Nina H.

    I really the fact that this html website builder gives you so many choices for your site, I mean, I have used other free website builders in the past, but this really gives you great tools such as this one. Simple great ideas like this one is what makes me stay with this website builder.

  • Jason

    I think this is the only online website maker software that offers so much more than just a template and a couple of tools. I have found so many helpful tutorials that I think of myself as an expert for building my websites. Right now I am in the process of building number 3!!

  • sthe
