Launching a website can certainly seem complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. If features like blog post recommendation algorithms and menu navigation all seem like too much to learn about, let alone incorporate into your website, LiteSite is a great option. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple one-page website to share your big idea with the world.
LiteSite is a website building tool where you can choose from a few simple templates, all of which look great when visiting on mobile and desktop devices. No coding knowledge required – you’ve got what it takes to set up a website in no time.
Here are a few things you’ll need to get started:
- A domain name that describes what your website is all about. If you’re anticipating your website visitors to be primarily from Canada, having your domain end in a .CA is a great choice.
- A few paragraphs about you and your website, a photo or two, and links to social media profiles, if you have them.
- And if you choose, embed the optional form to start capturing leads.
That’s it! A simple website gives you some digital footprint to be found online and build credibility. Here are a few real-life website examples that used LiteSite:

“I was very impressed by .CA + LiteSite and how it allowed me to create a great webpage for myself as a professional athlete, as it was quick and easy to make. It allowed me to have an online bio and portfolio that people can check out, and I am very happy with the service from webnames.ca. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to create a simple webpage for their business or themselves.”

Kelia Chien was able to secure her first name for her domain, where she has created a personal website that shares her interests, educational background and a form to get in contact with her.
“A website has always seemed so challenging and complicated to create and as a student on a tight budget, there was never really an option to hire a professional designer. LiteSite was an easy and quick setup and the website and interface were so intuitive. I was able to create a domain with my name (kelia.ca) which was extremely exciting and gave me the professional edge that could easily set me apart from a student to a budding entrepreneur. Once I hit publish, I was able to share it with my followers and knew I was able to go back anytime to edit it.”
