Getting Started with RVSiteBuilder
Most of us understand that a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) website builder can be a fantastic way to streamline web development and get a website up and running fast. However, even using a tool like RVSiteBuilder means taking the time to learn how to use its features.
RVSiteBuilder is designed around ease of use, but novice webmasters often need a clear and practical guide to creating their first site.
At JaguarPC, we provide RVSiteBuilder with every shared web hosting plan
because we think that every new webmaster should be able to give RVSiteBuilder a try. To help, we have put together this handy overview of the average RVSiteBuilder workflow. Read on to get started now.
Creating your first website in RVSiteBuilder
One of the best things about RVSiteBuilder is that it integrates seamlessly with cPanel, the leading web hosting control panel. After logging in to your cPanel account, you can open RVSiteBuilder to get started on your website.
Within RVSiteBuilder, you can create a new project and configure settings to apply across your entire site.
Once logged in to RVSiteBuilder, click “Create Project” to create a new website. You can then:
- Give your website a name that is used internally to refer to your project
- Enter the name of your website or your company name to display at the top of every page
- Enter a short, snappy slogan to appear underneath your company name
- Choose your website type from pre-defined categories, including business, family, music, and more
- Tick checkboxes to create the pages you need for your website
These essential settings are the foundation of your new website project. Fortunately, they can all be changed later so that you can move on to design and content as soon as possible.
RVSiteBuilder builds your website in three easy steps
Every new RVSiteBuilder project goes through the same three stages, each of which is shown on a different tab:
- Customize your design
- Create your content
First, you will be presented with a gallery of free templates included with RVSiteBuilder. By default, you will be shown templates that fit with the category you chose for your website. By browsing through the distinct template thumbnails, you can explore different designs until you find the right one for you.
Next, you can adjust your chosen design in a number of different ways. Every template includes multiple colors and images that can be switched automatically, while advanced users can edit styles and page layout features with precision. With some customization, you can turn your preferred template into a unique, original design.
Finally, add content to your site. The first part of this process is editing the pages that have already been created for you by inserting your own text and images. If you need to upload media, this can be done through the RVSiteBuilder interface without the use of external FTP software or your web hosting control panel.
In addition to your static pages of content, you can also add dynamic elements known as components. The components available in RVSiteBuilder include online forms, guest books, newsletters, blogs, and photo galleries, giving you enough content to make a varied and interesting website.
