Creating a website for your business is a great way to build an online presence. GoDaddy's website builder is an online editing and publishing tool that helps you make a responsive website with no technical knowledge.

Start a site

From, select Start for Free. You'll be asked a few questions including the type and name of your business. We use this information to provide photo and content recommendations for your site.

If you've already started your site you can acess it by going to your GoDaddy product page. Scroll down to Websites + Marketing and select Manage next to the website you've started and select Edit Website.

Change how your website looks with a new theme, colors and fonts

Your site has been customized based on the things you selected when you set up your site. Every line of text, every image and each page is customizable. Your theme determines the overall appearance of your site. You can also select the site colors, fonts and button style that'll be used throughout your site.
