From where can I start creating a new website?

After you successfully registered or logged into the MyCylex Account, click on the ‘Add Site’ button from within the Dashboard (the place to edit your website or add a new one). From here on, there are three simple steps to follow  in order to create a website: Website info, Contact details and Choose a theme.

Choose a domain name

Your domain name is the name of your website, the address where people will find your website online. For example, the domain name for MyCylex is ‘mycylex.co.uk’. Your website name can be as unique as your business. Remember that as long as you do not own a personal domain (a website name that you registered), your domain name will be as follows in the example: ‘example.mycylex.co.uk’. - You can replace ‘example’ with the website name you chose, as long as it is not already taken by another user.

What is my website category?

MyCylex offers over 100 business categories to choose from. Your business category is the category that your company belongs to. For example, if you own a restaurant, the right category for you is ‘Hospitality and Tourism’ - ‘Restaurants’. Choose the right website category that applies for your business. If you cannot recognise your business category from within the category list, you can choose a category similar to yours, or ‘General’.

What type of website should I create?

You can create a business website or a personal website. Create a business website for promoting your business, products and services. Choose a personal website if you want to create a website for personal use, such as showing your wedding photos, displaying your CV, showing off your hobbies, an online diary from your summer vacation or personal branding.

What is the website content and how will it help me?

Check the website content box in order to have a website already populated with content (text and images). By not checking the ‘Website content’ box , you start with an empty website that you can build from scratch. The website content should give you an overview on how your website will look like (with texts and images already added). You can change the content as you please, at any given moment.

Why are my contact details needed?

The contact details for your website (such as your name, e-mail, address, city and telephone number) represent the contact information for your business. They will be added within the website contact details and you can change them at any time.

Choosing a theme

Choose the theme that you fancy the most for your website. There are hundreds of themes to choose from, pick the right one for your website. As you browse through the themes, you can preview them and make your decision.
