Website Builder Onboarding Wizard

The first time you access your Website Builder, you will trigger the Onboarding Wizard. This wizard will guide you through the process of setting up the framework for your new website.

While you go through the wizard, you do not have to worry about your choices. Everything here can be changed later if you decide that these original choices just do not work for you.

Here is a guide to help you through the Onboarding Wizard.
