Website Templates

Auctria provides tools you can use when creating your website. You can select a template that includes some core functions. The template will automatically set up your website with the elements that you will likely need and then you can customize these elements to suit your specific requirements.

The Add Website page lists the current templates. Choose a template to base the website on.
