As a graduate student on the academic job market in 2019, I knew I wanted to have my own website. But I have a limited budget and did not have any time to spend learning new programming languages. I shopped around at the major recommended sites -- and came across Owlstown in response to a Twitter poll. I'm so pleased to have found Owlstown! First, it's absolutely the best price for me -- even including the cost of setting up my own custom domain. Second, it requires zero coding skills. Third, it knows what academics need -- so I haven't had to try to "squeeze" my academic profile into a template that doesn't fit. (For instance, uploading and maintaining my CV is super easy.) Fourth -- and, honestly, my fav part! -- Owlstown's customer support is both fabulously patient and incredibly quick. Not sure where something goes? Ask! Think you're doing citations wrong? Ask! No idea what a custom domain is? Ask!
Altogether, the intuitive template, price, and excellent customer support have made me get up and running with a website I'm proud of! I love my Owlstown site!
