SitePad is enabled by default on all servers using Softaculous (can be disabled by server admins from Softaculous Admin panel).

4 Simple Steps to build a website

Step 1 : Access SitePad Website Builder

Access SitePad from the Softaculous enduser panel, look for the SitePad Website Builder link in the left panel under the Search box.

Step 2 : Choose a Theme from 290+ themes

Once you are redirected to the SitePad editor server you will need to choose a Theme for your website. You can choose from 290+ Professional Themes which cover a wide range of categories like Blog, Business, Portfolio, Restaurants, Travel, etc. All the Themes are Responsive so your website will work across all devices sizes.

Step 3 : Edit your website with drag & drop editor

After choosing a theme the default pages will be populated with demo content. With the help of 40+ Widgets like Image/Video Slider, Image Galleries, Rich Text, Video, Audio, Service Box, Google Maps, Contact Form, Social Media Buttons, etc you can start editing the contents, add images/videos, text and also create new pages as per your requirements.

Step 4 : Final Step, Publish your website !

Once your website is ready you can click on the Publish button which will transfer static files i.e. HTML, CSS, JS to your web hosting account i.e. cPanel, Directadmin, Interworx, etc. The final website will be hosted on your web server and since the files are static your website will load much faster as compared to a PHP website.
