Premium Designs Set-up Guide

Congratulations on purchasing a premium design template from Network Solutions! This and other premium designs have been created for our Website Builder Tool by professional web designers incorporating the latest trends in web development. Each premium design template comes with:

  • Higher-quality images and photos
  • A choice of three professionally-designed images for your website header
  • An area for your website content that is 960 pixels wide. This is the optimal web page width for modern browsers and screen settings

Here is how to get started building your website with a premium design:

1. Login to the Network Solutions Account Manager by following the steps described at http://www.networksolutions.com/support/how-do-i-log-in-to-account-manager.

2. On the My Products and Services page, click My Website Packages to select the website where you would like to apply the premium design. You can also use the Select a Website Package drop-down list on the Account Manager home page to select your website.

3. On the Website Details page, click the Edit Website button to launch the Website Builder Tool.

4. Within the tool, go to the Design & Layout tab and click the Designs button in the top panel.

5. In the Choose a Design popup window that opens, locate the premium design template that you have purchased. You will be able to recognize this template by its thumbnail that will be marked as "Purchased".

9. When you are using a premium design for your website, an extra space will appear above your page header area. This space is part of the design template and cannot be removed. You can use this space to add important information about your website or your business such as a company tagline or contact phone number. Go to the Page Editor tab and drag and drop New Text, New Image or Code (use the HTML option) icons to add content to this area.

10. Remember to preview your website to make sure that you are satisfied with the changes and then publish the site so that your new premium design will be live for your website visitors.

Keep in mind that you can always change the design of your website using the steps above. You can also try other premium designs using the Preview It with Your Site option in the Design Preview window within the Website Builder Tool. You will be able to add content and preview your website using this feature. However, you will need to purchase the design in order to apply it to your published site.
