5 Steps to building a professional website with Moonfruit

Moonfruit website builder makes it easy to set up your business, project or passion online and share it with the world. In this post we show you how to create a beautiful website that looks great on any device – without writing a single line of code. Read on for a step-by-step to boosting your online presence with a  Moonfruit website.

1. Choose a template

First, navigate to our templates page and select from one of our ready-made layouts. Choose a site name, which displays in your visitors’ browser tab, plus in your dashboard to help you navigate your websites. Then type in a unique Moonfruit URL (this is the address you’ll share your website with). You can assign a full domain to your site in-editor later. After choosing your unique URL, the editor will launch where you can fine-tune every aspect of your new website.

2. Create your page hierarchy

Your site structure is important not just for SEO, but for your visitors’ entire navigation experience. Your template includes a default page hierarchy, but you can edit page names or add more pages to your new website through the editor. Rename, reorder, copy, publish, and delete pages whenever you like. New or edited pages will appear automatically in your website menu so visitors can quickly and seamlessly navigate your site.

3. Tweak your site style

Our global styling tool gives you advanced control from a single panel, which makes fully customising your website a breeze. Change site-wide fonts, colours, and link styling to ensure your website reflects your brand and is styled consistently. For even speedier colour application, select a beautiful pre-made colour scheme created by our design team and apply the theme to your site in seconds.

4. Customise your content

Once you’ve made your site your own through global styling, you can add unique content to really showcase your business or passion. Change copy, images, and links. Enhance your site with Moonfruit apps including social media feeds, forms, galleries, and slideshows. Add depth with scroll effects and immerse your visitors with background videos and animations.

5. Register your domain

Manage your website, domain and email all in one place. Boost your professional online presence by applying a snappy and memorable custom domain name to your site. As well as full access to DNS and other advanced domain tools, we include five free custom mailboxes with every domain you register with us. You can connect your domain directly through the editor in seconds.

And there you have it! Your new Moonfruit website is live and ready for you to grow your online presence. Next, why not check out our guides to SEO, online marketing, and social media?
