Main functions of Flazio.com
Before getting to the heart of this guide and explaining to you in detail how to create an Internet site with Flazio.com, it seems only right to offer you a brief general overview of the main functions of the platform (which we will go into further in the following paragraphs) which, said at the beginning, it allows you to create Internet sites in a simple way and with excellent results.
First of all you must know that to start using Flazio.com just make a simple registration as you usually do to use other online services. Once this first step is completed, you can then “indulge yourself” in the creation of your portal.
You can therefore customize your Web space with over 100 apps that are essential to add images, text boxes, to integrate social networks and so on. You can also create animations and transitions for all the elements added to the site, you can possibly create an internal blog and you can also take advantage of an ad hoc tool for creating and managing newsletters.
Other functions that certainly deserve to be mentioned are the automatic creation of a version of the website for mobile devices, the suggestion (also automatic) of the texts to be included in the various sections of the site, the multilingual nature of the service with automatic translation of the contents written in the sequel, the presence of an automated check-up system and the one that allows you to obtain a complete picture of visitor statistics.
As already mentioned, most of the features can be used in Free version - so free -, while others are intended for those who decide to rely on the version Professional of the site that has a cost equal to 9 euro / month or 99 euro / year.
The most evident distinction between one and the other variant is undoubtedly that relating to the type of address of the site. With the Free variant you can in fact create only a Flazio subdomain, while with the Professional version you get a personalized address and you can choose between the various extensions. Furthermore, the Free variant of the service offers a hosting space of 200MB, in the case of the Professional version there is no limit. For more information you can connect to this specific page.

Then click on the button Subscribe.

The next move you need to make after registering your account on the service is to choose the template that you think will be most suitable for your portal.
