Step 2:

If you don't already have your site created with 3rd party software you can use our online site builder. Please click on the Site builder link as pointed out below.

The online site builder provides the basics to creating your website. Though its not the most reccomended method to creating your website. We provide the online builder as a convenience to our customers. If the online site builder isn't meeting your needs or you want to try a great 3rd party web authoring software I highly reccomend you download CuteSite Builder from the link provided. Its great for beginners and the intermediate user. We also support Frontpage and Dreamweaver. (frontpage extensions are only available to paying customers) You can check out our tutorials on how to upload to your site with these 3rd party programs in the tech support / faq section of our site.

Make sure the folder is set to / and the filename is index.html.

Most of the features are very similar to your standard word processor. When your done creating your page make sure to click save button at the bottom of the screen. If you need help understanding how to use any of the features please click on the small question mark in the upper right corner.
