Web.com Site Builder

WHMCS MarketConnect allows you to resell Web.com Site Builder, an unbranded high-quality website builder. When you offer this, your customers will not see the Web.com brand or WHMCS, making it appear to be a bespoke offering from your company. The websites your customers create will publish to and be hosted on your own servers.

For more information, see our Web.com Site Builder Knowledgebase.
