Create a New Website

Starting your new site with our Setup Wizard

Our on-boarding solution, the Website Setup Wizard will walk you through the process of setting up your new website. Once you log into your Client Area for the first time, you will see a notice asking you to set up a new website or migrate an existing one. Click Set Up Site.

A new section will appear where you should select to Start a New Website.

Choosing an application for your site

On the next step, you can choose an application which will be automatically installed on your new website through the Wizard. The most popular and simple app for starting a new website through the Wizard is WordPress. To select it, simply click Select in the WordPress section.

Setting up site login details

Next, set up the website login credentials which you will use to access the back-end section of your site where you can manage and add content to your pages. Fill in your email address and add a strong password. To get a random strong password, click Generate. To preview the password, click Unhide. When you’re ready setting up your login details, click Continue.

Optional: Creating an empty site from scratch

If you want to create a blank site with no application installed on it, you can do so by choosing the Skip & Create Empty Site option at the bottom of the page. This way, you will create a completely empty site which you can later customise.

Adding extras and launching your new site

The last step gives you the option to add useful extra functionality to your new site. Before you launch your site, you can add to it the SG Site Scanner solution which will monitor your site and notify you if your site gets hacked. To get this extra service, click Add. Once ready, click Finish and your website creation will be completed in a couple of minutes.

Congratulations! You have just created your new site. Visit our next tutorials to learn how to:
