You signed up for your pair Domains account after purchasing the best domain for your brand. Now you need a website. Don’t waste time being overwhelmed by the cost of hiring a designer.

What is a Website Builder?

A website builder is a user-friendly tool created to build a website using drag-and-drop technology. Drag-and-drop technology is built on a graphical interface. The interface relies on “dragging” what you need from one side of the screen and “dropping” it where you want it on your website. The drag-and-drop builder is a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) visual building tool showing you what you’ve done as you build.

PROS of Using a Website Builder

  • You don’t have to spend the time and money needed to learn coding
