Jimdo (/'d??ndo?/) is a web hosting service. Jimdo offers JimdoFree, a free web hosting service, JimdoPro and JimdoBusiness, both premium services. Jimdo is operated by Jimdo GmbH, a Hamburg, Germany-based company. Jimdo was founded in February 2007 by Matthias Henze, Christian Springub, and Fridtjof Detzner. In April 2009, after Yahoo! announced that GeoCities was closing, Jimdo announced that former GeoCities users were welcome on Jimdo.

Jimdo offered a 10 percent discount to users who moved from GeoCities and Google Page Creator to the JimdoPro service.
