How do I purchase a Website Builder package?
The instructions will show you how to purchase a Website Builder package from the 123 Reg website.
Login to your 123 Reg control panel.
Scroll down to the Create your website section and click Buy Website Builder.
Click on the ‘Buy now’ button under the package you would like to purchase. Then follow the on-screen payment details to finalise your purchase. You can then either choose to register a new domain name to go with your package by searching in the Find a domain box, or you can proceed to checkout if you already have a domain in your account that you want to use.
Please Note: It can take up to 2 hours before you are able to access your Website Builder package.
Buying Website Builder Starter
In order to purchase our Website Builder Starter package, you must either purchase a new domain name with 123 Reg or own a domain that doesn’t have a website or web hosting associated with it on your 123 Reg account.
Here’s how to purchase Website Builder Starter for both options:
Purchasing a domain name
Search for a domain name using our search function. Once you’ve found your ideal name, add it to your basket.
Repeat this process if you wish to purchase any other domain names, or proceed to checkout by selecting ‘View basket’.
As you continue the checkout process, Website Builder Starter will automatically be added to your basket.
If you have multiple domains in your basket, then multiple Website Builder Starter products will be added, one for each domain. Complete the checkout process to purchase Website Builder Starter.
If you own a domain without a website or hosting
Access your 123 Reg Control Panel and scroll down to the Domain names section. From there, select the domain you wish to purchase Website Builder Starter for from the menu and click ‘Manage’.
On the Domain Management page, select the ‘Activate your website builder’ option.
This will take you to the basket page where Website Builder Starter will automatically be added. Complete the checkout process to purchase Website Builder Starter.
Do I need a hosting package with Website Builder?
Website Builder has everything it needs to help you build and host your website without the need to purchase any additional services.
Websites created with Website Builder do not use a traditional hosting platform, as the hosting used comes built into the package itself. This covers the hosting of the site itself, but also the hosting of the images and files that you can upload to the platform.
As a result, you do not need to upload your pages for them to be hosted; everything is created and automatically hosted through the package. This takes all of the hassle out of creating a website, as everything you create is contained in one place.
The amount of hosting space used by the package depends on the package level you purchase, ranging from 2gb for our personal package, to unlimited space on our Business Mobile package. You can find out more about our Plans and Pricing here.
Can I connect to Website Builder via FTP?
Owing to the nature of the platform, you cannot connect to your Website Builder by FTP. If you wish to upload files or images to your site, you must do so through the Website Builder media system.
