Introducing: Blocks - A faster way to build unique websites

Most no-code website builders sacrifice customization for ease of use. We give you both.

We are excited to announce the launch of Web Blocks – Pre-built web page sections and templates that can be fully customized and combined to build complete ‘modular’ websites in minutes.

Blocks come with layouts, functionalities like e-commerce, media, forms, appointment management, and the tools you already use so you can leave the hassles, hidden costs, and headaches of website building in the past.
