Web.com, a provider of domain registration and web development services, has announced the launch of an easy-to-use DIY website builder.

The new website builder makes it easy, affordable and without delay for businesses to create well-designed and impactful websites and online stores.

Website builders are available to all new customers of the Web.com brand, including the Network Solutions brand and the Web.com brand.
