Question: Do I need to know HTML or CSS to build my site?
Short Answer: No!
AresBuilder is designed to be a simple, easy way to create the website you always dreamed of. In most cases you won't even have to worry about HTML or how to code a website - we’ve done all that work for you! If you’ve ever attached pictures to an email or uploaded photos to FaceBook, and typed an email or document in a word processor, you most likely already possess all the necessary skills to build a beautiful and professional website via AresBuilder.
If you do know HTML or CSS and want to customize your site though, we haven't forgotten about you! There are some places within our site creator where you do have the option to utilize HTML and CSS coding for additional customization, but unless you have a pro site designer or someone working with you who knows the material, it shouldn't come into play. Most websites can be built with just a simple theme and layout selection, followed by easy drag and drop application of widgets on-screen.
An example of a time you may need some basic HTML knowledge is if you want to add affiliate links, affiliate banners, or embed codes from other sites like YouTube. If you need help with something like that, please let us know and we would be happy to give you a little walk-through.
