How easy is it to set up a website?

At the moment, we are currently hard at work to get our New Visual Editor developed in order to make the creation of custom pages on websites a breeze. Some of those features include an inline rich text editor and responsive design blocks.


In the meantime, many users take advantage of the fact that you can upload virtually an HTML based template into the source code of your website. While this isn’t always the simplest task for some users, many of our users have had success going this route. Our support team is happy to assist you step by step through the process.


Can I transfer my WordPress or Wix site to the website builder?

Yes, as long as they are HTML based, it won't be an issue to transfer them to our website builder. You just need to download the files from the old hosting that you have, point your domains to DashNex, and upload the files on our platform. We're happy to help you with that!


Can I use my own domain? 

We offer hosting and provide a sub-domain for your website. If you want to use a custom domain from a domain provider service, you can use that instead and connect it to the platform.


Once you have purchased your custom domain, check out this tutorial to help you get a better understanding of how to connect it to the website builder platform. 


Why do we need CloudFlare to set up our custom domains? 

You do not need CloudFlare, we just recommend it. CloudFlare provides 2 huge benefits: 

1) SSL, which is essential for eCom store; 

2) MX records, which you will need for custom domains.

 

If your domain hosting can provide SSL just as CloudFlare does and it allows to add MX records, you can point it via CNAME record just fine. 


Can I embed audio and/or video on my website?

You can embed video from any streaming service like YouTube, Vimeo, or Wistia by grabbing the embed code of that audio or video and adding it into your page’s source code. 


Is there a blog template?

While we do not currently have a blog template, there are lots of free html templates available online that you can use with our website builder platform. All you have to do is search 'free blog html template' and you will be presented with tons of choices.


Does it come with an automatic email responder?

The website builder does not come with a built-in autoresponder. However, we currently integrate with the following autoresponders: GetResponse, MailChimp, ActiveCampaign and Aweber.


Where do I get HTML templates?

There are tons of free and available for purchase HTML templates online that you can find and use. Here are a few suggested sites to check out: 

Free Templates: 
https://templated.co/ 


Paid Templates:

https://themeforest.net/


How do I upload an HTML template? 

Once you find the perfect template for your website, you then need to download the files and do a few things like compressing the assets before uploading into your source code. We have a great step by step tutorial on how to do this here


Can I use PHP template files?

Unfortunately, no. PHP template files are not currently supported. 


Can my visitors book appointments on my website?

While we do not provide an out of the box appointment feature, you can definitely add it to your website. You would just need to use a third party app for appointment booking such as Calendly.


How many pages can my website have?

There is no limit to how many pages you can have per website. 1 license = 1 website and 1 website = 1 sub-domain (you can of course choose to add your own custom domain as well). So, in summary, you can have unlimited pages on a single website. 


Would this be good for setting up a monthly subscription based membership site?

No, our system is not designed for membership sites. For that, we would suggest something like WordPress with Wishlist or Kajabi.


Are there any samples you can show for the website builder? 

Again, when it comes to the website part of the platform, you can build pretty much any kind of HTML based website using templates that are available online. Here are few examples of us doing just that:
