A note from our co-founder
Nrdly is the best option for authors who need to create a beautiful website, without the stress.
Our designs are built to be worry free.
Hey, there. I’m Nick – co-founder and author. I’ve tried dozens of website templates over the years and was never able to get the look or functionality that I needed for my author websites.
Nrdly was born out of this frustrating experience. I teamed up with a professional designer and developer to create website templates that look amazing and allow me to easily promote and sell my books as well as run my online courses – all in one platform. Best of all, the templates are lightweight and compatible with all of my favorite plugins and tools.
– Nick Stephenson, co-founder & author
“Simple to use, clean and attractive design, helpful videos.”
“Sooo easy to use and it looks amazing.”

“Helpful for those of us who have minimal DIY web site building experience.”
Do I need any other tech?
No. We provide the website template and hosting. If you want to add custom functionality for things like membership content protection, subscription payments, or SEO, you can add plugins for that (which we can help with too).
Can I use my own domain?
Yes. We will give you a free subdomain to use to get started with, and if you want to transfer over or purchase a custom domain of your own, we can add that on for you and get it working.
Can I connect my email list?
Yes, of course. Our help guides will walk you through the necessary steps to connect your preferred email list (such as Mailchimp or ConvertKit) with your website. From there, you can add email as many email signups for things like free book downloads or newsletter subscriptions.
What if I have an existing site?
No problem. We will set you up with your favorite Nrdly template on a temporary domain so you can keep your existing site live while you work on your fancy new website. Once you’re happy with the new website, we’ll help you point your real domain over to the new site and that’s it, you’ll be off to the races.
