Where can I get information on how to create website content and how to add content to a website hosted by Afrihost?

0 votes

Is there a step by step guide for one new to Afrihost, (hoping for a "onestop" affordable solution) to create a website. Select theme, Add content and publish the website. The information found on site is disjointed - does not provide me with end to end info. I would like to write my own content and add it to my website without using external parties. Assume I already have a domain name hosted by Afrihost.

I have a similar problem....just signed up.....Afrihost website is disjointed!!! I bought the bronze package with the hope to strat building a website. I see no link to get me to start working on the website with Website Builder! Terrible site. Hope there is a reaponse to this query
I am now sorted.Had to log a 'Support' query first which generetad a query ID. Got a response on how to create the website sent to my email. Had to register again for a username on the website platform. Wherein I found the link to the Website Builder. PHEW!
why can't we just as registered clients get the link on the main page soon after registration? What year am i in?
Hi Thusi,
Sorry to hear you had a hard time.

SiteBuilder/Sitepad comes with any Linux Pro shared hosting package (Not available with Windows hosting)  - https://www.afrihost.com/site/product/linux_hosting  
That is Bronze PRO, Silver PRO, Gold Pro or Platinum PRO (Not Home packages).
You can read more about WebSite Builder here - https://www.afrihost.com/site/page/website_builder

Please follow the steps below to access SiteBuilder via ClientZone.
Log into ClientZone.
Select the ‘Hosting’ tab.
Under the Shared Hosting section, select the domain you wish to edit from the list on the right-hand side.
Click on the ‘Website Manager’ button.
Select ‘Log into Website Manager’.
Select ‘Afrihost Site Builder’ in cPanel or select ‘Sitepad’ in your CWP control panel.
This will take you into the SiteBuilder dashboard where you can start creating and editing your site.
