LIFEYO is a free website builder and website hosting company founded in Newport Beach, CA. Lifeyo allows users to make websites without using HTML or managing a hosting account.

Lifeyo competes with other website builders such as Yola, Jimdo, Webs, Weebly, and Wix.

Features[edit]

Lifeyo offers templates that allow users to get started building their website quickly. Users can choose from different website types (business, personal, portfolio, and blogging) that provide a starting point with placeholder content. The WYSIWYG website builder allows users to customize website pages in a visual manner that does not require any HTML coding expertise.[1] Users of Lifeyo can build websites using the blogging interface and photo gallery features. A feature that was unique to Lifeyo is the ability to collaborate on a website with multiple editors.[2] The service is free and does not apply ads on websites created by users. For a fee the company offers an upgrade to a domain name.[3]

Lifeyo was released to the public in 2010 at the South By Southwest Interactive conference in Austin, Texas.[4] It was a startup launched by Mike Kai and Wiwat Ruengmee.[5] Lifeyo has offices based in Newport Beach, California and Bangkok, Thailand.[6]
