To give your customers access to 20i's Website Builder you can select the Web Builder Platform when creating a hosting package.

Like with other packages, you’ll first need to go to the Manage Hosting section of your account and select Add Hosting in the top right.  

You'll need to enter the domain you wish to use for the Web Builder site. Then select the Web Builder package type. 

Create a hosting package

Once you've created the package you should be able to find it in your list of packages on Manage Hosting. From there, you need to select OptionsManage and this will take you to the package.

Once on the package you can select Install

Install the website builder

You’ll then be asked for a sub-directory to install the web builder in to. This can be left blank to install to the root of the domain name,, or can be filled in so the web builder is installed to a sub-directory such as or etc.

Create web builder instance

Once you’ve done that, you'll be presented with a drop down menu. If you have more than one web builder install on the package, they will all be listed and accessible here.  

If you want to install the web builder to a different sub-directory, you can do so by clicking on the green plus icon. The red cross can be used to remove web builder from a sub-directory it's currently installed-to.

Select different web builder instances

Once you've selected an install from the drop down menu, you'll be presented with a number of themes to choose from. If none are selected a default theme will be used. The theme can be changed at any point.

To use a theme simply click on the desired theme and then select Set your theme! at the bottom of the window.

Once you’re happy with your theme selection you can click Open Web Builder to be taken to the web builder itself. 

Set your web builder theme

Once you’re in the web builder, you'll be asked first for an email address and the name of your new website. 

The email address is important. This is the email address used to gain access to the site's admin area should you or an end user of yours be unable to access it through our own control panel.

Next you will be asked for contact information for the site. This information will be used to generate a Contact Us page for the site and to create a GDPR-compliant Privacy Policy for the site.

At this point you’re done with the set up. If you haven’t used our web builder before, we'd recommend you now follow the 2-minute-long welcome guide which will take you through the basic usage and customisation of your new site with the web builder.
