Things to know
How it works
Mailchimp’s website builder is free and available to all users, so you can start to build your business or brand from day one.
Create as many web pages as you need and use our mailchimpsites.com domain to publish your site at no extra cost. If you’re on a paid Websites & Commerce plan and want to use a different domain, purchase one in Mailchimp or connect one from another service.
In this section, we'll cover the available tools to build and manage your website.
About the website dashboard
Our website dashboard gives you access to the website builder and your settings. You can also view reports on your website's performance, including number of subscribers, visits, and clicks. If you have an online store or offer professional services, those important details can also be viewed. You can delete your website from the dashboard at any time.
About the website builder
The website builder lets you quickly style, edit, add, and duplicate pages on your website as needed. Use the placeholder text and images we provide in your page layouts to help guide your design. Add or remove sections to achieve the right look for each web page.
If you want to choose your website's colors and fonts, visit the Styles menu. Select from the palettes we've designed, or create a custom set of colors on your own. Choose between curated font pairings that support the look and feel of your business.
You can create new web pages and duplicate existing web pages from the Pages menu. The web pages you create will be linked in your website's navigation bar by default, and you can choose to hide them anytime. You can also add links to other websites, like Facebook or Instagram, to your navigation bar.
If you want to rearrange the web pages and links in your website's navigation bar, drag them into the order you like. After you create a web page, you can edit its URL, SEO, and social sharing settings.
