How to Activate Weebly for a Domain or Subdomain


You can add Weebly to any of your domains or subdomains on your shared hosting account directly in cPanel. Weebly is not currently available on reseller, VPS or dedicated servers yet.

By activating Weebly on a domain or subdomain, your Weebly website will replace any existing website you have there. If you have an existing site, please backup any files you want to keep before continuing.

Step-by-Step Instructions

To add Weebly to a domain, you will need to be using HostGator's New Portal Experience.
  1. Log into your Client Area at https://portal.hostgator.com/.
    • If you cannot remember your password, click on the Forgot Password link below the login area, then follow the instructions emailed to the primary email address on file.
  2. Click Hosting from the left-hand side menu.
