How to set up your Website Builder website
This article will give you a brief introduction to Website Builder and explain how you can start setting it up.
Congratulations on purchasing your Website Builder package – you’re now one step closer to creating your own professional-looking site!
To help you with this, we’ve outlined a few important areas that you’ll need to consider.
Start by choosing a template as the base for your website. There are a variety of templates available in different styles and colour schemes, so simply choose the one that you feel offers the best starting point for your website. You’ll be able to customise and change areas of your template later, so don’t worry if you can’t find any suitable options.
Once you’ve chosen your template, you can begin populating your site with your own text, images and videos by using Sections (if using Version 9) or Widgets (if using Version 8). You can also change the default style of your text, buttons and images as well as your general colour scheme by selecting the Theme option.
One of the best aspects of our Website Builder tool is that you won’t need any technical knowledge at all. However, provided you have the required plan, to do this although you can edit your website’s underlying HTML and CSS code.
Since this is the first part of your website that most of your visitors will see, this will need to make a really good first impression. Having a generic or dull homepage will result in visitors leaving in a matter of seconds!
