Warning:

At this time, the only way to change your Website Builder theme is to cancel the plan and to start a new plan for the same domain. We recommended using the free Basic plan until you are satisfied with your theme.

If you have already purchased an upgraded plan and wish to change your theme, please contact support for assistance.

Our new Website Builder has a great deal of flexibility to serve the different needs of different users. Whether you need to upgrade, downgrade, or cancel so that you can try a new platform, this article will guide you step by step:
