To build a new website, you first need to register it in our system. If you are planning to use Microsoft Frontpage, the instructions are slightly different - see Build a new Frontpage site for the alternate insturctions.

Registering a Website

When building your website, you will first need to select a unique name to address your website. You are will be prompted to select one of the following options:

  • Use an existing domain

This will allow you to select from a list of domains that you have registered, either by registering them through Bravenet or adding as an external domain. If you do not have a domain registered yet, this option will not appear.

  • Use a subdomain

This will allow you to create a subdomain to refer to your webspace (ie: myname.example.com). If you do not have a domain registered, you will be creating a subdomain on bravehost.com - for example, myname.bravehost.com.

  • Use a domain registered elsewhere

This will allow you to use a domain that you have registered with another provider. You will have the option of setting an external domain, or transferring your domain.

  • Register a domain

If you do not already have a domain registered, we can help you with that! More information on this process is found in the Registering a domain article.

On our free hosting you can create and manage websites on up to 5 domains; with our basic professional hosting you can manage site on up to 10 different domain names. More differences between the free and professional hosting can be found on our hosting matrix.

What's Next?

Once you have registered your site, you can now build your site in our website manager! You can use a variety of tools - everything from our Website wizards to our Web templates for beginners, or you can create a new FTP account so that you can upload your pre-designed website directly to our servers.
