How to Start

Anyone can get started right now with a free account on Bookmark.


  • Sign up

If you haven’t already, the first step is to sign up with your name and email address. That’s all we need to get you started!


Just click any Sign up button that you see, or click Sign up in the top right hand corner of the Bookmark website.



  • Choose a Template

The template you choose is the foundation of your website on Bookmark. It’s an important step, so we’ve given it its own guide. Click the link you’ll find at the end of this guide.


  • Get a Domain

Your website will need a domain, or address, where people can find and visit your site.


There are three choices:

  • use a subdomain of Bookmark

  • get a new domain through Bookmark

  • connect a domain you already have


The easiest way to get started is to use a subdomain of Bookmark. Using a subdomain opens up a lot of website names that are already taken in the .com realm. This can be almost anything that you can think of, it’s free, and it only takes a second to set up. No one sees your domain until you Publish, and you can easily change it at any time. (We recommend making changes before publishing, so you don’t confuse your visitors.)


Even if you already have a domain name that you’ve purchased and want to use, it’s faster to get started with a free subdomain, and then point your domain name to it later.


  • Create your website

When you’re ready to start, click the Create New Website button you’ll see at the top of the Your Website tab.
