How to use Sitebuilder

Using Sitebuilder

Do I already have a website on-line - How do I use SiteBuilder? With Sitebuilder you can create a website quickly and easy, to which you can then attach more pages (not created with SiteBuilder) using the Ftp log. Of course, the opposite is also possible, i.e. adding pages that you have created with SiteBuilder to an already existent website.

If this is the case, keep in mind that when you publish pages created with SiteBuilder, pages with different titles are added to the current pages, while pages with the same name are replaced by the new pages.

However, before using SiteBuilder, we recommend that you review the easy procedures summarized in the following sections. Sitebuilder requires you to build a home page that is identified by the system as an "index.htm" page, which is then put on-line as the home page of the site.

Example: In the Sitebuilder dialog, you are creating a unique page named "test" after making sure that there are NO pages in the webspace named "test.htm" and "INDEX". HTM', since such pages would be overridden with those generated with Sitebuilder. If there are such pages, we recommend that you make a copy and save it on your computer before you start publishing with the page structure so that you do not loose it.

Once you have edited such a page, post it on your current website now. At this point, the system identifies it as a possible start page, since it is given its name according to the nomenclature which differs according to the kind of domains hosted, Linux hosted and Windows hosted.

The Sitebuilder "test" page can be used as the home page from the name of the home page that is already on-line on the site. If this is the case in order to re-establish the former homepage, change the name to'index. htm', in this special case to'test. htm': At this point, you create the page'test. htm' with Sitebuilder, which you can then arbitrarily create links to the pages of your website.

When you want to recover the old home page (or rather the old'INDEX. HTM' page), just put back the image of this page that you found previously in your web storage (from a former copy or from the image when this feature is active) in web storage (via FTP). If there are other pages in the Sitebuilder console, the above behavior would apply only to one of the pages generated next to the "test" page (e.g. "test2" and "test3"), which Sitebuilder interprets as the home page, while the others are renamed after the name of the page, so if you are sure that the webspace does not contain the same renamed pages, no overwriting will take place.

3 - Choose the SiteBuilder symbol. Note that if there is already material in the webspace of the relevant domains, the publication of the SiteBuilder web site will add pages with different titles to those already available on-line, while pages with the same titles will be replaced by new pages.

If you are using the DOUBLE Windows+LINUX Hosted service, you can choose the FTP publishing platforms (Windows or Linux) on which the SiteBuilder contents will be published. When you do not specify a preferred value, the system sets by default the publishing in the web-spaces on which the WWW Pointing Designation domains were solicited.

Note that if your SiteBuilder site already contains contents in the chosen webspace, the publication of the SiteBuilder site will add pages with different titles to those already available on-line, while pages with the same titles will be replaced by new pages.

After you have built the website with SiteBuilder, you must access the WWW from the "WWW Host Management" section to see the content on-line.
