But despite the awareness, the idea of building a restaurant website on your own can be a daunting task; especially if you are not much of a ‘techy’ person.

The first step is to have a clear idea of how you wish your website to look like.

It is a software that helps build a website and provides you with all the features you might need to make your website appealing to the customers.
