    I would like to know how to re-design and improve an existing web site whilst still using the “old” site and keeping the new design hidden until it is complete.

    Also I would like to know how to change the web page from to another URL which is already registered and owned by us.

      Hi Peter,

      I can see you are on one of our standard accounts, which means you can host up to 5 websites. If you are looking to have a redesign you can log directly in to, then click on ‘Add a site’ from your dashboard – this will allow you to create a new site from scratch using an alternative template.

      Once you are happy with the new design we can help you swap over the url of your site so your users will be directed to the new one.

      With regard to having a personalised domain, you can register a domain through your domains dashboard at:
