Who is Go Sitebuilder for?

Go Sitebuilder is for anyone who wants their own website and online presence, regardless of technical ability or skill level. You don’t need any previous experience of building a website to create something beautiful and professional; our pre-built sections will help you to get a stunning finished product in no time.
The eCommerce feature makes it a great fit for people who want to sell products or services online, but it’s by no means limited to those people. Bloggers, artists, tradespeople, dressmakers, dog groomers…anyone can get online with Go Sitebuilder!

What is a website builder?

In many ways, it does what it says on the tin: it gives you everything you need to create a website for yourself in one simple tool. You don’t need any complex technical knowledge to use Go Sitebuilder; just the basic information you want to include! Go Sitebuilder is more than just a website builder; every subscription includes a domain name, personalised email addresses, an online store and a blog, for a complete online presence.

Do I need a website?

If you’re running a business, then in a word: yes! We aren’t just saying this; we go into more detail in our blog posts here and here. You can’t beat a website when it comes to building credibility, taking control of how people see your business and growing your audience.
If you’re not running a business but you’re keen to share your travels with the world, or to show off your photography skills, then a website is the perfect way to do that. Go Sitebuilder has you covered!

What is a domain name and why is it important?

A domain name is the address where your customers can find you online (e.g. www.gositebuilder.com). An individual domain name will instantly make you look professional and help to build credibility for your brand. It’s just as unique as your fingerprint, so no two websites can have the same name – helping your visitors to easily find you online. That’s why we include a free domain name in every Go Sitebuilder subscription.

What about emails?

As above – personalised email addresses (e.g. hello@yourdomainname.com) will help people to contact you easily, as well as making you look much more professional. We offer up to five custom email addresses with every subscription, so your customers will always be able to contact you.

I’ve already got a domain – can I transfer it over?

Yes! We have a domain-mapping tool for that.

What are the benefits of using my phone to create my website?

Being able to create and update your website on your phone means that you can make the most of any spare time you have! No matter where you are or how long you have, your website will come with you.

What do you mean when you talk about a ‘responsive’ website?

A responsive website resizes itself based on the device it’s being viewed from. This means that if someone’s viewing your website from a phone, it won’t be so tiny it’s hard to read; it will resize and reshape itself to fit their device! Similarly, even if you’ve created your website on your phone, it will fill the screen and look great on a desktop too. With Go Sitebuilder, this is all built in – so it’s instantly responsive without you having to do a thing!

How much does it cost?

For just £9.99 a month, you’ll get our website builder, store builder, a blog, a domain name and up to five personalised email addresses. That’s about the price of one coffee a week!

Do I have to pay straight away?

No! You can try Go Sitebuilder totally free for 14 days with our free trial. Sign up here.
