Building your website

With the service provided to you, you can host your website content within the space limit allocated. In this section, we're answering the question, how you could have your website done.

There are a few options on web development phase. 

  1. You can hire a web designer.

    Together with your hosting account, there is an FTP service (File Transfer protocol), which allows you to upload the content into the server. If you hired a web designer for the website, you need to give the cPanel or FTP credential for them to upload the content into the server.

    Beside FTP, you can also use File Manager function in cPanel, located under "Files". Its a powerfull feature to manage all the files in your account, from uploading, editing, deletion, and changing file permissions

    Bear in mind, all of your content should be uploaded into "public_html" folder

  2. Using softaculous apps installer

    Softaculous is a great tool with comprehensive collections of scripts. You can install more than 300 scripts just within a few clicks. Using those scripts, you build your website on top of it, either it be a static content website, blogs, e-commerce site, forum or any business tools that you need. 

    We do recommend using Wordpress as Content Management System, which has huge community using it. We covers in detail on how to start developing your website using Wordpress in another article.

  3. RVSiteBuilder Pro

    Besides that, you also have access to RVSiteBuilder, a web builder which is available from cPanel, under Software and Services. You will have access to more than 1000 templates to choose from. If you're not subscribed to us and want to test it out, you can access the software demo at http://rvsitebuilder.com/index.php/main/public/action/view/page/demo
    You can view
    website samples which were developed using RVSiteBuilder.

Uploading files

You home folder will contains some other hosting account related files, such as email, web statistics, and also public_html, which is the root folder for your website. Therefore, all of the website content should be uploaded to, and accessed relatively from public_html folder. 

If you want to use a FTP client, we would recommend using FileZilla, an open source file transfer utility. The software can be downloaded from https://filezilla-project.org/. The operations are quite intuitive, you can see clearly the 2 pane area, which the left side is your local filesystem, and the right pane shows files on your hosting account. You can upload your files to the server just by dragging the files form left pane, to the right pane. The only information you need for FTP access are as below:

Server : <yourdomain.com>
Username : <you got this during account setup>
Password : <You can reest password in cPanel. Its the same username and password for cPanel login.>
Port : 21
