Choosing the website type
After you’ve logged in, you’ll be prompted to choose which type of website you’re building.
You can choose between a regular website or an online store, depending on your type of business.
If you own a business and want to make it easily accessible to everyone, then Website is the ideal choice.
With this option, you can include all your relevant company information and take advantage of our integrations to enhance your brand visibility.
If you're looking to have a website and sell products or services online, the Online Store is the perfect choice for you. With this option, you can set up an e-commerce platform to cater to your customers' needs.
When selecting Online Store, you'll also need to choose a plan to suit your needs.
After you choose the type of website you’re building, you should set up the basic details.
1. Add your project name
The project name will serve as your temporary domain name until you finalise details.
2. Add your business type
Choosing the business type will help us to understand your business better and provide you with the best possible solutions almost instantly.
3. Describe your business
In the next step, tell us a little bit more about your business. What is it? What do you sell? Add any information you might think is important for us to know, and focus on keywords so that we can provide the best visuals for your website.
4. Choose a website theme
You’re almost done! In the last step, you should choose a theme. Swipe left or right to find the best one for your website. Once you’ve chosen, drag it to the middle of the screen, then select Next.
Important: you can’t change your theme at a later time. Don’t worry, there are still ways to customise your website design whenever you want.
