Sign Up

Signing up to these platform is as simple as possible. It doesn’t have endless registration forms – it requires a minimum of information, like website type (forum, blog, online store, etc.), and domain name. Immediately afterwards you can start managing your website. Doodlekit features WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor that is extremely simple in use. Novices will definitely love the drag-and-drop interface allowing managing page blocks easily. However, in order to add more complex website features, users will need to apply their HTML knowledge.

Domain Name and Hosting

Doodlekit is very flexible in terms of domain names. Users can either register a new website name within the platform, or redirect their previously bought domains to the freshly created websites. As for the hosting, this platform offers both free and paid plans.

Design

This website constructor offers a number of default templates, a variety of background patterns and color schemes, as well as the possibility to upload your own image for the website header. Because the number of designs and customization features are limited, for novices it can be difficult to create a really unique website. However, those who know basic HTML have better chances to personalize their websites.

Additional Features
