Calibre is "free" (please donate) and has been trouble free for me on XP, Win7 and Linux.
Runs on MacOS, Linux and Windows.
It's far better and more flexible than any online site.
It also is the best way to manage more than 50 books, one device, several and works with Kindle, all makes & models of ePub based readers I've tried, two Android phones and two Android tablets I have, all different versions of Android.
It also does a better conversion from docx to epub2 and upload to Amazon for Kindle, than uploading doc or docx or mobi direct to Amazon.

Also this site hosts Kovid's excellent support for Calibre.

He's courteous, helpful and unlike Microsoft, Google or Apple, he actually listens and fixes stuff!
Preach on, brother, preach on. I've been using Calibre since it was libprs500 and by far the best way to manage a Sony PRS-500. I try to remember to drop some money Kovid's way every year. No idea how much I've sent his way, but he's worth every dime.

Ditto. I installed Calibre before I bought my first DRMed ebook in 2011, and have been using it constantly since. I also try to donate a little every year.
