Free website builder now available!

The team at HostAway is proud to announce the launch of our new website builder. This tool will allow you to build and edit beautiful and responsive websites with ease, using existing templates and handy widgets to make design simple.

If you have a Linux hosting plan you are now able to click on the Website Builder link in the left hand menu of the Members Panel, or simply visit http://builder.hostaway.net.au to get started.

 

  • Sign up or Login.
  • Create a new site by choosing a theme, then click edit.
    • Don’t forget to give your website a proper name when saving it to your profile – this will be displayed at the page’s title to visitors.
  • Customise your site!
  • Add new sections to your page by clicking on the Blue Plus icon after every section (and select from a variety of section templates).
  • Customise and re-arrange sections on a page, using the tools on the right-hand portion of the screen.
  • Add an element to a section with the grey plus button, or click existing elements to bring up their edit menu.
  • Add additional pages to your site by clicking the top-left page field (you start at “/Home”)
  • Preview your site in different sizes (Computer, Tablet, Mobile) from the Preview menu.
  • Link the site to your HostAway Account by clicking ‘Link this site’ under the Publish menu, and authenticate using your HostAway account details (domain name & members panel password).
  • Once your site is linked, you can publish changes to your site by clicking ‘Update Live Site’ under the Publish menu – the publish process takes 3-4 minutes to complete.
  • You can add and manage multiple sites across multiple domains from your Web Builder account.

Please note that once you link this to a domain it will remove all of the old files and directories you had in there previously. If you need a backup restored just let us know.

We look forward to seeing the wonderful new websites our clients will be able to build using this new tool. If you need a more advanced website created or don’t have an eye for graphic design then please contact us so we can refer you to our talented network of local developers.
