Can I use a different software instead of the Premium Web Builder?

  • Answered
Hi. I've been using Premium Web Builder for several years. Frankly, I'm just not very happy with it any more. How can I start using another software to update my site? Do I have to start from scratch? Please give me step-by-step instructions on how to switch from Premium Web Builder to a different website builder. Also, which software do you recommend? Thanks so much.
Hello Billee, Sorry for the issues with changing to a new website builder. Unfortunately, the change may not be a linear thing. I would suggest the following:
  • Evaluate your old site - does any part of it accomplish your need for a website? Make note of these sections
  • If you are trying to preserve your position in any search engine then check the URLs in your favorite search engine and make note of the URLs that you wish to preserve. The information you save is important in maintaining your search position when you move to your new web software solution. Note that 1 and 2 are basically the same thing, but they may NOT yield the same results. You may like something on your website that may NOT have a high search position. If necessary, you can build re-directs using those URLs in order to preserve your search position.
  • Note that if you just want to start all over and have no worry about the old site, then you can simply start over. You can easily delete your site, but make sure to keep any graphics or other content that you want to take over. It will save you a lot of time when creating the new site.

The majority of our customers who want to have control over the site appearance don't necessarily want to be the graphic designer and they also don't want to have to be web programmer in order to add some type of web functionality. Therefore, we often recommend WordPress as the solution to use. It gives the user complete control, or only minimal control in order to quickly create a website. It can be scaled up very easily with thousands of free plugins, and it can also be quickly designed with thousands of themes. It is the most widely used website software on the internet. We also promote BoldGrid as a plugin to create your site since it provides website templates that you can quickly manipulate for your needs.

If you want to do this, you can easily install WordPress from the Softaculous option in cPanel. Also, you can submit a support ticket to our live technical support team to have your account reset if you wish for everything to be reset before you start. There are many solutions on the web that you can use to build your website. If you don't want to use WordPress, that is definitely up to you. Since we often work with it, it is our recommendation to replace Premium Web Builder. I hope that helps to answer your question! If you require further assistance, please let us know!
