SiteCreator: General FAQs
What is SiteCreator?
SiteCreator is a drag & drop website builder which makes it dead simple to create a powerful, professional website without any technical skills required. Content elements (like text, photos, maps, and videos) are added to your website by simply dragging & dropping them into place. Text is edited just like in a word processor. Building your website is done in real time, right from within your web browser. There's absolutely nothing to install and no upgrades to worry about.
Is it free?
Yes, it is but you have to purchase a domain from us. All free SiteCreator websites have an advert in the footer message that reads "Powered by Weebly, Managed by Webvisions". Once you have upgraded from the Free plan (to Starter, Pro or Business plan), you can then remove the footer message, and customize your own footer with their own content.
Do I need to download or install any software?
No, our website builder is accessed via your web browser. When you sign up you will choose a username and password and you can use these to log in to the My Account section and start creating your website straight away. There is no need to download or install any software.
Will you design my website for me?
Yes. If you don’t have the time or inclination to create your own website using SiteCreator you can select the Done-for-You service– which means our team will create the website for you using SiteCreator saving you time and producing a professional looking website for your business.
Does SiteCreator allow to make changes on a code level?
In case you want to go beyond what SiteCreator offers in its official theme library, you can completely customize the look of your site using the HTML/CSS editor which provides you with a real-time preview of the changes made to the template’s code. Thanks to the technical nature of SiteCreator, you can create a custom template yourself or hire a professional to draw it for you.
Are SiteCreator websites mobile friendly?
Yes. SiteCreator includes a mobile editor which is as easy-to-use as its desktop counterpart. However, though it allows to customize your site’s mobile view easily (using the same drag-and-drop tools), it should be mentioned that there’s no way to create a separate mobile version for your site. In particular, when you add an element to your mobile website, it will invariably be shown on your major website, too.
Can I build an eCommerce website with SiteCreator?
Yes, you can. There’s a native eCommerce platform allowing you to sell both digital and physical goods. It has an impressive set of customizable properties: filtered product search, tax control, coupon codes, mobile store and checkout etc.
The Free, Starter and Pro plans let you sell a limited number of products – 5, 10 and 25, respectively. Within these plans, a transaction fee (3%) is charged. The Business plan which is meant for eCommerce websites will come with unlimited products and no transaction fees.
Does SiteCreator offers any membership features?
Pro and Business users can activate a registration option for their site to allow site visitors to sign up to become members. You can add members, manage them in groups and control which pages they have access to.
Can I take my website to another Web Hosting company?
No. Because the SiteCreator software is installed on our servers and you need the software to create and edit your website you cannot take your site somewhere else.
Why can’t I find my website in Google?
After your website is published with a proper domain name it can take a few weeks for Google to index your site. After your site has been indexed it will show up in their search engine results.
