Building a new site to replace an existing site

The best way to build a new website from the ground up, to replace your existing site, would be to add an additional website within your account. Take a look at the steps below to see how that is done...

1. From you account dashboard, click the Manage Sites tab located at the top of the page.

2. Click the Create New Website link and then choose a design for your site from the list of pre-designed website templates.

3. Choose your website address - On this page you will want to choose the top, free WebStarts.com address option. Enter a site name in the top field that is similar to your domain name so that it's clear that this new site is related to your primary one, and then click the Continue button.

That's all it takes to create a new site within your account. You can now edit this new site as desired and when ready, contact us to let us know and we will move your premium site features as well as your domain name to this new website.

Note: As covered in the video above, make sure to pay close attention to the page names of your old site when creating pages for your new site. If Search Engine position is important to you for a specific page of your old site, make sure that you have the same exact page name created in your new site. When your domain name moves over to the new site the previously indexed links will no longer work if the page names are different.
