Congratulations on taking your first step to create a beautiful, professionally designed website! We are excited to take you through this process. Let's get started!

Enter the website name
Enter your website name. You can change it later. You can also enter your website description. This step is optional and you can edit this description later at any time.
Once you are done entering your details, click Continue.
Choose your website type
Choose the type of website you want to create. You have the following options:
- Multi-page website: fully functional website complete with images and demo content. This website is built of several blocks professionally designed so fonts, images, and the layout are optimized for the best user experience on any device.
- Business card: this is a one-page digital introduction of your business containing a brief outline of what you do, a relevant image, and your full contact information. A Business card can serve as a placeholder mini-site replacing the “Under construction” page or as a building block for your multi-page site.
- Blank template: if you are not sure - or are completely confident in your website building skills - you can start from a blank page and populate it with Blocks pre-designed in full accordance with the template style.
Note: All colors, fonts, and effects are consistent throughout all the Blocks that you will use to build your website from scratch. You can choose a color palette later.
Once you have chosen your site type, click Continue.
Add your business details
At the next step, you can add more business details such as:
- Your logo. Learn about the importance of your logo in this article.
- Your business name
- Business description
Note: adding all of these details is entirely optional at this stage. However, it helps to simplify your website setup, as these details will be auto-populated in your header, footer, and contact details.
Once you have added your details, click the Finish setup button.
You will be taken to the Sitebuilder where you can start customizing your design.
