First steps in creating a website on mobile

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

1. The first thing you need to do is sign up for an account. You will enter the Template Gallery where you can explore the beautiful collection of website templates that you can use right away. Choose the style that appeals to you and click Use this template button. Here’s a guide that describes the Template Gallery in more detail.

4. Once you have chosen the template, you are taken to Step 1 of the Site Setup Wizard.

Step 1: Add the required details

Here’s what you can do at Step 1: 

  • Tap the field and enter your website name. You can change the website name later in Website settings.
  • Choose the category of the website you are creating, for example, business or online store, from the drop-down menu.
  • 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, tap Continue button.

 

Step 2: Choose your website type

At Step 2 of the Site Setup Wizard, you can 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.

At step 3, you can add more business details such as:
