I would like to rebuild our current website with your website builder. I believe it is included in our plan. What is the best way to do this while the current one is kept up? We are currently using a joomla site and have limited capabilities due to lack of understanding the programming. Thx.

Hello mtolosa,

Thank you for your question. After installing the Builder, you can work on your website and preview it within the Builder, without actually publishing it.

When you are ready to go live, uninstall Joomla from Softaculous, then publish your Builder site.

Also, keep in mind that there are over 280 other options for designing your website, included in Softaculous. You can easily install them in a different folder from your original site, or on a subdomain. When you are done testing, uninstall Joomla from Softaculous, then move the site to your public _html folder.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

It is saying I have already used the builder account. I'm not sure why it is saying this because the original website was built with Joomla, not the builder. Can you help me with this?

Hello mtolosa,

That warning means your Builder account is already setup, you can simply login to begin designing the website.

It is possible to have the Builder as well as Joomla, because the builder does not actually push any files into your account until you publish.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
