Introduction

The first step towards creating your website is selecting a Template. We offer different types of templates that you can use to create your website. Basically, there are 5 types of templates available including, Classic, Traditional, Modern (Hybrid), Revo, Physical Only and Audio Only. Revo Template is activated for your website by default. Later on, you can switch to different templates (For Example, from Revo to  Classic Template and Revo to Physical Only Template and so on.) according to your needs or you can also modify the existing template with our Template Editor feature. (That is, you can modify our Classic, Traditional, Modern, Modern Lite and Physical Only template according to your requirement).

Note: After changing the template, you need to clear the website cache. Otherwise, you may see the "Smarty Exception" error message and the template will not be displayed properly on the front-end. To know, how to clear the website cache, please Click Here.
