How to Create a site with Power Pages: A Complete Guide

What is Microsoft Power Pages?

Microsoft Power Pages is a low-code website development tool that lets businesses easily make secure, scalable, and user-friendly websites, with less coding. Its older version, Power Apps Portals, was good for data-driven business web applications, but it had some problems. It was not mature enough, had limited low-code features, and was hard to scale up. So, Microsoft replaced Power Apps Portals with the better and more flexible Microsoft Power Pages.
