Web Hosting Getting Started Guide 41
In the example below, we chose the name "new_site" for the folder that will house our web
site files, then chose the Next button to select the default location for this folder, "sites."
For each site that you build using SiteBuilder, you will create a new web site folder, each
with a unique name. We recommend storing all of your web site folders in the same
location. (Please note that you can create as many sites as you like. Though you can publish
only one site per Web Hosting or Merchant Solutions account, you can publish up to 100
sites with a single Yahoo! ID.)
Have you already created a web site? SiteBuilder makes it easy to import a web site you
created using another tool. When you import your site, SiteBuilder will save your site in the
default folder, sites. Unless you are an advanced user and need to store your site elsewhere
on your computer, we recommend that you do not move your site files elsewhere.
Note: Please be advised that Yahoo! SiteBuilder offers only limited support for web sites
built with tools other than Yahoo! SiteBuilder or Yahoo! PageBuilder that incorporate HTML
and/or other programming languages. Yahoo! SiteBuilder will do its best to interpret
imported pages correctly, preserving their original content, formatting, and layout.
However, you should be sure to check all of your pages carefully for errors before saving.
You can also import a web site that you ve created outside of Yahoo! by uploading those site
files to your Web Hosting or Merchant Solutions account with FTP, then importing those files
into SiteBuilder using the steps above.
In your SiteBuilder Control Panel, you ll find all the tools you need to create a professional
looking web site. Before you begin working on your site, we suggest you take a moment to
familiarize yourself with its features.
Menu bar: The menus at the top of your screen contain all of the commands and tools
you ll need to work with your site.
