Yes you can. As with most things, just because can doesn’t mean you should. It takes years of experience to understand how to properly plan, develop and deploy a web project. Free website builders are made available and often have free hosting as well. These builders typically make their money by putting ads on your website. Most of the pre-built templates from these sources allow you to change a color or add a photo in addition they are optimized for mobile devices. If, however, you need a larger site or if you want to use your site as the basis of an SEO project you would do better building a site that you have full control of. Determining what elements are on your page and how they are loaded is vitally important. How fast your website loads is quickly becoming one of the more Significant parts of SEO.
Do-it-yourself website builders do not give you the control you need. Only a custom built website by a professional web developer can achieve the right results. If you don't want ads on your website then you are typically committed to a higher monthly payment. If you stop paying the monthly fee your website will disappear. It is not possible to take the site somewhere else, you are tied to the one provider. Custom built solutions do not allow you to own your site. You have the freedom to choose your web development company and move to any hosting company you like.
