Weebly | HostGator Support



Weebly is unavailable on new Shared (SW) accounts; however, WordPress is an excellent alternative to these builders. The instructions on how to install WordPress are discussed in the article: How to Install WordPress With Softaculous.

To confirm if you are on a new Shared (SW) package, please see this article, How to Tell if You Are on a New or Legacy Hosting Package, for more information.

Premium Features

While the basic version of Weebly has everything you need to get your site up and running, premium features are available to help you take your site to the next level. You can add these features anytime by clicking on them on Weebly.

To learn more about Weebly's advanced settings and premium features, please see the following:

Note: Weebly is activated for an individual domain or subdomain per installation. You may have multiple instances of Weebly active on different domains and/or subdomains. Installing, upgrading, downgrading, or canceling Weebly on one domain or subdomain in your account does not affect Weebly installations on other domains or subdomains.

Moving Weebly Sites

Based on Weebly's restrictions, we cannot move a Weebly site's content to a new domain name. Though the files themselves would transfer, Weebly cannot integrate the files properly, and the site would not be editable on the new domain in Weebly's interface.
