About Web Widgets and Free Website Builder

Our company, Web Widgets Ltd, has been in the web development business since 2000, and is based in Grey Lynn, Auckland, New Zealand.

Over the years we have helped many thousands of customers build awesome ecommerce websites as well as informational websites, from all over the world. 

Our content management system was developed to cater to the needs of our early customers, requiring "widgets" that enabled them to easily manage their website, and add this or that feature

Initially we were known by our company name "Web Widgets", later we used the phrase "Website Builder", and more recently we promote ourselves as "Website World" to stand apart from inferior website builders who trade under the generic name.  

The success of Website World is due to the complete integration of all our services into a single cohesive product. Everything is in the box. There is no need to search for expensive plugins with our service, everything is included.  

We have further enhanced our system to include integrated point of sale (POS) and inventory management, so that you can manage all your back office store management needs and reduce complexity of syncing multiple systems. Dealing with inventory and vouchers can be very hard when your POS and shopping cart are not linked tightly. 

In addition, our website builder service has evolved over the years to be both very customisable, while super easy to use. 

Independent Web Designers and Resellers

We have over 50 independent web designers and resellers across New Zealand who can help you design and manage your website. Web Widgets Ltd manages the billing and hosting for many of these web design businesses. So you can feel safe working with any of them, as you are backed up by our head office.  Learn more about being a reseller here

Sustainability and a Living Wage

We believe in sustainable business objectives. We believe in a living wage. Looking for the cheapest international hosting service, only ends up in a poor quality service with poor quality support. Our team earn a living wage. 

We value that staff should have flexible working conditions to balance their life commitments, and we utilise a support roster meaning that not all staff are available all hours. 


We donate regularly to various charities, such as Oxfam, and Fred Hallows, as well as several other childrens charities. 


We do not permit gambling, pyramid marketing schemes nor any illegal content on their servers.
