As soon as you register an Ecwid account, you get a Starter Site – a free landing page with your store. You can edit its content and design to represent your business best and to show your products.
This landing page is protected by SSL, so you do not have to worry about purchasing and installing the certificate. The site runs on Ecwid secure servers, so we take care of maintenance as well as the uptime and availability.

- intuitive editor for creating a unique website with no coding skills required,
- professional responsive design that makes your site look great on any device,
- SEO features,
- free hosting and full maintenance by Ecwid,
- online store built into the website.
Starter Site consists of several editable sections that you can combine to publish the information about your company, share your business story with your customers, post their feedbacks, show the location of your offline stores and demonstrate your products in a remarkable way.
If you have your own website, you can add your Ecwid store there and use Starter Site as well. For example, it can act as your mobile-friendly storefront in case your website doesn’t have a mobile version.
When you have a store running on your own website, you need to take care of hosting, SSL and maintenance. However, you can add build the site the way you want, for example, you can create many pages there and add different information there, like some articles, posts, photo collections, etc.
