Easily create, customize and publish web apps / websites for free with Microsoft WebMatrix

In a recent article, I wrote about the Microsoft Web Platform and the apps and websites you can create for free. Microsoft recently introduced WebMatrix, which combines all of the programs needed to create, customize and publish a website (like WordPress, DotNetNuke, nopCommerce) in one, easy to use program.

Microsoft WebMatrix allows you to manage all aspects of your website. From inside WebMatrix you can change web server settings (Internet Information Services / IIS), create and customize your website (Visual Web Developer 2010 Express), create and edit databases (SQL Server 2010 Express) and generate reports. It will also upload your app / website from your local server to your remote server too.

Here's a quote from the Microsoft website:

Create, customize and publish websites with WebMatrix

WebMatrix is a free web development tool from Microsoft that includes everything you need for website development. Start from open source web applications, built-in web templates or just start writing code yourself. It’s all-inclusive, simple and best of all free. Developing websites has never been easier.

Create your website

To get started creating websites, just download and install WebMatrix using the Microsoft Web Platform Installer. You’ll be up and running less than 5 minutes! Once WebMatrix is installed, we make it simple to get and install the latest version of your favorite free web applications such as WordPress, Joomla!, DotNetNuke and Orchard.

Customize your website

Once you’re up and running, you will find that WebMatrix provides all the tools features you’ll need in a single unified interface. Say good-bye to switching between multiple applications just to perform common web development tasks. With WebMatrix, you’re always just a click away from easily editing your files, managing your database and modifying your server settings.

Publish your website

When you’re ready, WebMatrix provides a no-hassle way to show the world your website. Just access our hosting gallery from WebMatrix and you’ll find a hosting provider that is guaranteed to run your site smoothly while also allowing you to publish directly from WebMatrix.
