Set up my site

When you start building your website, we ask you what it's about so we can generate designs tailored to your needs. There are plenty of business categories, but your options don't stop there. Planning a wedding or creating a résumé? We've got you covered, including compatible images.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account and open your product. (Need help opening your product?)
  2. Enter the first few letters of your choice in the What's your site about? field and a list of choices appears. You can pick one immediately or finish your entry.
    Enter type of site or business

    Note: If you bought the Online Store plan, you'll see What type of business is it? instead. Every plan offers all the designs.

  3. Enter your site or business name in the next field and click Get started.
    Enter name of site or business
  4. It will take a few moments to generate your site's design, and when the welcome screen appears, click Choose Color and Fonts.
    Click choose colors and fonts
  5. When the Theme panel appears, you're ready to change your site's main color and font.
    If you like, change site color or font

    Note: To change anything else on your site, click the Edit button.

  6. Your theme settings and all other changes are saved automatically, so when you're finished click Preview to see the results, and, if you like, you can buy a new domain or use another of your domains.
  7. When you're ready to make the changes public, click Publish Site (mobile phone) or Publish (desktop/tablet).
