SiteGround Adds a Free Website Builder

As many of you know, we work with various CMS’s - WordPress, Joomla, Magento being some of the top favorites of our customers. No matter how straightforward we think these CMS’s are though, many customers have difficulties working with them. This is why we spent some time looking for the easiest website builder that we could integrate into our platform and offer to our customers as a solution to their hassles. We are happy to say that we found it in Weebly - a powerful yet simple drag & drop website building tool.

  • My newly created weebly site is not overwriting WordPress...so my created site does not show up but a blank WordPress 2016 theme "page not found" does with my domain. Please help!

    • The App Center, as a relatively new development of Weebly, is still not available through third parties. We have an estimate from Weebly that it should happen in Q1 2017.

  • I plan on using forms on my Weebly site, but there isn't a Captcha option available. I heard that JotForm app may be an option, how can I do this?

    Spam is impossible to weed through with form data.

  • I'm trying to add a WordPress template to my site through Weebly but for every template I try I get an error message that there's no html page in the upload. How can this be a problem when I'm getting the template straight from the WordPress site? Can somone please help me?


    • In order to use a WordPress theme, you have to use WordPress, not Weebly. Weebly have their own themes.

  • If I have a GrowBig account, can I host multiple Weebly sites each with their own domain name without upgrading Weebly?

    • There should be no issue with that. Just enable the Weebly sitebuilder for each domain you want to use it for. If you encounter any difficulties, please get in touch with our Support team.

  • I build a site on wix.com, can I sign up for a SG basic account and have my content from wix transferred over?

    • I am afraid that there is no way to migrate your content from Wix. You basically have to manually copy/paste the content into a CMS you want to have on your hosting account with us.

  • Is there any news or a timeline on when direct access to weebly editor will become available? As opposed to having to go through SG back-end.

  • I started out with Weebly, but your support team suggested Wordpress, intact, installed it for me which i appreciate except now I have a conflict somewhere and I can't solve it. Please help me with this regard as I cannot move forward with using Wordpress.

    • Hi J.A, I have posted a ticket to our Technical Support on your behalf, so that they research the conflict you are experiencing. Please follow the ticket progress for updates.
