Website Builder

  • Are there ads on your Website Builder?

    No! We do not post any ads on our Website Builder even if you are using the free version. The only thing that we do have on the free version of our Website Builder is a footer that says, "Powered by Dynadot". This can be removed or replaced with any upgrade to either our Pro ($5/month) or Business ($15/month) plan.

  • What are the variables that I can use for my Website Builder shopping cart's order notification emails?

    Our Website Builder's shopping cart offers sellers four custom order email templates to send to customers who purchase from their store. You can use variables within these templates that will fill in information automatically for you. They include: {store.name}: This will input the store name you entered in the "General" section of our commerce editor. {order.orderId}: Our system automatically assigns each order a number. This will input the order number within the email. {order.refundAmount}: We recommend using this variable in both the "order cancelled" email and the "order refunded" email as they should both include a refund amount for the customer's reference. {order.orderTime}: This variable will stamp each order with a date and time based on the time zone selected under "General" and "Standards and formats" within the commerce editor. How do I edit my order emails?

  • How do I change my default comment settings for all of my Website Builder blog posts?

    Our Website Builder blog offers you the option to turn comments on or off within each post as well as the ability to choose on or off as your default setting for all posts. To set your default, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Click on the "Website Builder" tab on the main menu. Click on the "edit" link next to the website builder you want to use. Click on your main "Blog" page. Click on the "Blog Settings" button at the top of the page. Scroll down to where it says "Comment default" and choose "on" or "off" from the drop down menu. Click "Save" at the top of the page to save your changes. By default, the comments are set to "on" when you create a new blog page. I turned my blog comments on. Why aren't they showing?

  • What is a Website Builder?

    A Website Builder is a product that allows anyone to build a website with no coding experience. Before the Website Builder, building a website required some technical knowledge. Now, anyone can build a website. Dynadot is excited to offer customers an easy-to-use Website Builder product. With our Website Builder, you can drag and drop your way to a beautiful website! We offer many tools and a variety of plans to meet any budget - including a free plan to get you started! Our Pro plan offers users unlimited pages and a free domain name, among other tools. Our Business plan offers an e-commerce shopping cart, custom email, and more. Visit our Website Builder plan page for more information.

  • Can I turn the comments on or off on an individual blog post within your Website Builder?

    Yes, you can set whether or not you want your comments on or off within each individual blog post in our Website Builder. By default, each blog post will have comments set to "on" when you create a new blog page unless you've changed your default comment settings. If you want to change the comment setting for an individual blog post, please follow these instructions: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Click on the "Website Builder" tab on the main menu. Click on the "edit" link next to the website builder you want to use. Click on your main "Blog" page. Hover over the title of the blog post whose comment settings you want to change. Click on "Post Settings." Under the "Comments" section, use the drop down to select whether you want your comments "on" or "off" for that blog post. Click the "Save" button at the top to save your changes. I turned my blog comments on. Why aren't they showing?

  • How do I change the name of a page on my website in your Website Builder?

    To change the name of a page on your website in our Website Builder, follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Click on the "Website Builder" tab on the main menu. Click on the "edit" link next to the Website Builder you want to use. Click on the "Page" icon (the one that looks like a piece of paper) on the left-hand tool bar. Click on the page you'd like to change. The "Navigation Title" is what appears in your navigation and the "Page Title" is what appears at the top of the browser window. If you've upgraded, you can also set a description, the URL for the page, a thumbnail image that will show if a visitor shares your page on social sites like Facebook, prevent search engines from indexing your page, and disable the page, which allows you to edit it without publishing it. Hit "Save" at the top to save your changes. Note: Changing the title of the page will not change the URL unless you have upgraded your Website Builder to unlock that feature. However, if you want your page's URL to match the name on the page, you can simply create a new page and it will set your URL to match your page name. (If you use multiple words in your title, it will put dashes between each word.) Doing this may require you to delete a page as you are limited to 5 free pages.

  • Does your Website Builder shopping cart automatically know the sales tax I should charge?

    No, our Website Builder shopping cart does not know the sales tax you should charge for your online store. It is up to you to decide if you should charge any sales tax and how much that sales tax should be. Our system offers you a way to manually set up taxes based on country, state, or province. You may need to do some research on sales tax to decide what you need to do. SBA.gov is a good resource if you are located within the US. If you do need to set up any taxes, you will need to first set up a shipping zone in our system: How do I set up shipping zones? How do I set up sales taxes?

  • How do I add gallery of images to my Website Builder?

    Our Website Builder allows you to easily add a gallery of images. To add your gallery, please follow these instructions: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select the "Website Builder" tab in the main menu. Click on the "edit" link next to the website builder you want to use. Click on the "Add" icon (the plus in a circle) on the left hand tool bar. Click and drag the "Gallery" icon to the section you want it to appear on the page. After you have placed it, the "Edit Gallery" box will pop up. Click on the plus sign that says "Upload Images" to upload an image from your computer. (Currently, our system only allows you to upload one image at a time.) You can adjust the way your gallery looks on your website by clicking the "Design" link at the top right corner of the "Edit Gallery" box. In "Design," you can choose to have your images show in a slideshow, carousel, grid, or stacked. Each of these options also have their own settings that will show below as you select them. When you're done setting your gallery design and uploading your gallery images, click on the "Save" button. Your gallery will appear where you added it on the page. Click on the "Save" button at the top left of the page to save all your changes. You can also add a gallery of your Instagram images.

  • How do I cancel a customer's order within your Website Builder's shopping cart editor?

    Our Website Builder shopping cart makes it easy to manage your orders. Cancelling an order will automatically refund your customer in full. To cancel an order, please follow these instructions: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select the "Website Builder" tab in the main menu. Click on the "edit" link next to the website builder you want to use. Click the "Shopping Cart" tab (the one that looks like a cart) on the left-hand tool bar. Click on the orders tab. Pending orders will be the default selection when you land on this page. Click on the order you want to cancel. Click on the "cancel" button. If you want our system to "restock" the items back into your inventory, make sure to check off "the claimed quantity for products in this order will be restocked back to your store." If you want to send out an "order cancelled" email to your customer, make sure you check off "send a notification email to the customer." Click "Confirm" to cancel the order or "Cancel" to cancel the cancellation of the order. Once you have confirmed the cancellation of your customer's order, our system will refund them in full. What is the difference between refunding an order and cancelling an order?

  • How do I set my text to one of my header settings in your Website Builder?

    Our Website Builder allows you to set 3 different headers to use within your website's content (this is different from your website's main header). To set text to use one of your headers, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Click on the "Website Builder" tab on the main menu. Click on the "edit" link next to the website builder you want to use. Go to the page with the text you want to set to a certain header. Click in the text box and highlight the text you want to set to a header. A text editor will show above the text box. On the right side of the text box, you will probably see "Normal" selected as your paragraph setting. Click on this and select the header you want from the drop down. Your text should now match your settings for that header. Click "Save" at the top of the page to save your changes.
