Q. What is Website Builder? 

The web builder is a simple solution that allows you to build a website without requiring any technical knowledge at all. You simply log in online, choose a template for your site, define the structure of the pages - then add text, images and other elements.

The UK Website Builder from 123-reg is different from other tools because it gives you complete control over your site. You can customise it as little or as much as you like. The included templates give you lots of flexibility to move elements around at will using the simple drag and drop interface.

You can import images and embed videos, Twitter updates and feeds from other websites into your pages.

If you're a web designer or developer, you'll appreciate the advanced options available with the site builder Business package. The groundbreaking PSD slicing option will automatically generate standards compliant HTML-CSS from a layered PSD file that you upload.

Additionally, the editing tools included in the web builder will allow you to directly edit your site's underlying HTML and CSS code. This saves you heaps of time building a website, without requiring you to settle for substandard code.

Q. What can I do with the UK Website Builder? 

It makes it easy to build a website. With our web page builder you can create a site for your business, for a club, as a hobby, to showcase your work ... the only limit is your imagination!

The easy to use Website Builder Personal is designed for people who don't want to get involved in the technical aspects of building a website. It includes straightforward tools to customise your site, while taking care of the technical side of things - including the code - for you.

The Business Website Builder package also includes tools for designers and developers. The PSD slicing function automatically generates standards compliant HTML-CSS when you upload a layered PSD file. It puts an end to manually slicing and coding PSD files. You'll also get direct access to the code behind your site, so you can tweak every aspect of it.

To help build your site, PayPal Widgets mean you can add ecommerce features with minimum fuss.

Q. Do I need a hosting package with Website Builders? 

No as it comes packed with everything you need to help you build and host your website and even includes email accounts so you don't need to purchase any additional services aside from the site builder.

Q. Do I need technical knowledge to use the web builder? 

No. Our easy to use Website Builder allows you to build a website without needing any technical knowledge.

Q. How long does it take to set up Website Builder? 

You can usually start using the web page builder a minute or two after your purchase. Occasionally it takes a bit longer to set everything up.

It might take a couple of days for your domain name to point towards your new website.

Q. How do I get help using Website Builder? 

If you need help, the first thing to do is to head on over to our support site. We've published loads of information there - and the chances are we've already answered your question.

You can also get in touch with us via the support site. Just log in and use the Ask a Question option to get help using the web page builder.

Q. Can you help me move my website across from another provider? 

We do not offer any transfer service to help move your website across from another provider. Our solution is really designed to make it easy to build websites from scratch - so if you already have a site elsewhere, you'll probably need to copy and paste the content in to a Website Builder template yourself.

Q. Can I buy Website Builder without a domain name? 

You need to use a domain name so people can find your site on the internet. Both the Personal and Business packages include a free one, so there's no need to worry about paying extra for this.

Q. What domain names can I get for free? 

Every full package of Website Builder includes a free domain name. We'll let you choose which one you want when you buy the service. You can have any domain name with one of the following extensions (as long as it's not already been registered by somebody else):

  • .co.uk
  • .org.uk
  • .me.uk
  • .com
  • .net
  • .org
  • .info
  • .biz
  • .mobi

This domain is free for the first year of registration. After the first year the standard registration fee for the domain will apply. If you cancel the service, we'll start charging you separately for the domain name, so remember to let it expire too, if you don't want it any more.

Q. I already own a domain. Can I use it with Website Builder? 

Probably. If the domain name is registered through 123-reg and you're not already using it with one of our own services, you can add it to your package when you order.

If your domain is held with another company, you can probably transfer it over to us when you order. However, please check with your current provider, as some won't let you do this.

If you're planning to transfer in a domain to use with Website Builder, you need to transfer it first. Make sure the transfer has completed before you buy your package.

Q. What's the data limit and what happens if I exceed it? 

The data limits available with our packages are generous. However, if you do exceed the bandwidth limit in any given month, access to your site could be suspended. Please check our acceptable use policy for more information

Q. Which web browsers does Website Builder work with? 

Websites created with our solution will display properly in all modern web browsers. However, the site editor works best with the latest versions of Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari. We don't recommend using Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Q. Is there a minimum contract? 

The minimum contract for Website Builder is 12 months. If you pay for your package annually, you'll receive up to £24 off per year! You can still choose to pay on a monthly basis if you prefer.

Q. Can I upgrade my Website Builder package? 

Sure. If you're using the Personal version of the software and want to take advantage of the extra features available in the Business package, you can upgrade whenever you want. Just log in to your 123-reg control panel and choose the upgrade option.

We'll calculate the new cost of your package and adjust the charges accordingly.
