1. Login to your control panel and click the "Site Builder tool" link under the 'Software & Services' heading on the control panel's front page.

2. You will be presented with a list of available domains to install a website onto using our Site Builder tool. Click the "Launch Site Builder" link next to the domain you want to create a website on.

3. You will be presented with a screen showing your account details. These settings are automatically inserted, there is NO need to change them as they are correct. Click the blue 'next step' button.

4. Select a template design that you would like to use. We have over 600+ professionally designed templates free for you to use. Click the blue 'next step' button when you have chosen a template you like.

5. You will now be presented with a screen asking for you to configure your new website's page settings. Remember to change your website's title, slogan and contact details.

6. Underneath the contact details input box, you will see an option for you to configure what pages you would like to create on your new website. Check the tick boxes against any new pages you would like to include on your website and change their page title if necessary. Page content can be changed later. You can also add or delete any web pages at a later date if you change your mind.

7. Click the blue 'Go >> install my website!' button to create your new website ready for editing.

8. A popup confirmation box will now appear reminding you that any previous websites you have created using the Site Builder tool on the same domain will be overwritten. Click 'OK' to confirm and continue with the installation, however if you do not want this to happen- you will have to create a new website on a new domain that you register or add via your control panel.

9. A new popup box will appear showing you the progress of your website's installation. Sit back and relax, it wont take long. Do not click back or reload the page as the installation will stop working.

10. Once the installation is complete, you'll be presented with a confirmation page. Congratulations! Your new website has been created successfully and you can view it using the link provided on the confirmation page. The page will also contain a link to your website's Site Builder control panel. Please write this link down or save it / bookmark the link for future reference.

After installation, you should login to your new website's Site Builder control panel and start to make changes to your website's pages. You can also add graphics, text, polls and much more. That's it, have fun and remember- if you get stuck, please view our knowledgebase or create a new support ticket via your main control panel.
