About web pages

The pages on your website can be used to convey information about your business. By default, the Public Website includes sample pages for Home, About us, Directions, Contact us, and Blog. These are the kinds of pages you find on most websites today. You can customize these, remove them, or add new pages for your business. You might, for example, create a page that describes your products, events, Frequently Asked Questions, and so on. Once you add the page to your website, you can then add content (text and images) to the page, save it, and publish it for everyone to see.

The pages themselves are stored in the Pages library of your site where they are saved as versions and require permissions for authoring so that you, other contributors, even an invited designer can work on them.
