Build your Website
A quick guide to putting together a website for your business, portfolio or blog, without touching code
Step 1: Choose your Website Builder
Carrd provides an extremely simple but comprehensive drag-and-drop website builder. Carrd is great for a personal portfolio or one-page website
Dorik combines the simplicity of SquareSpace with the power of Webflow and lets you build with over 130+ UI components and templates!
The best choice for those who want maximum control over their content-driven website. Webflow has a steep learning curve, so start with their video tutorials
Step 2: Find a template (optional)
Carrd provides a full list of super high-quality themes when you start. Note that some of these require a Carrd Pro subscription!
ThemeForest is the go-to site for Wordpress templates and is especially useful if Webflow themes are too expensive or Weebly themes too basic
Webflow's own theme store lets you preview and change themes before you buy them. These themes are super high-quality and often include a few variations
Step 3: Choose a name, register a domain

They do more than just names - select a few preferences and a randomised logo is generated for you - Doesn't get easier than this!
The big guns - This service isn't cheap, but they'll produce something custom, quick and beautiful - like the NoCode logo!
