How to Create a Website

Building a new website using CMS, uploading website files or with the Website Builder

Updated this week

There are several ways to build a website, and at Hostinger, you have different options for that.

Use a Content Management System

If you wish to create your site using a CMS, you can find the most popular ones, such as WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal, within the Auto Installer on the hPanel.

Just navigate to Websites Manage, search for Auto Installer on the left sidebar, and click on it to start the process:

Upload a Website

If you have already built a website, you can upload your website files using the Import Website feature on the hPanel. Go to Websites Dashboard, and on the left sidebar, click on FilesImport website.

Importing a website using hPanel

You can use this feature for files up to 256 MB. Larger files can be uploaded via FTP.

Keep in mind that if your website requires a database, you will need to import a database with phpMyAdmin.

Alternatively, you can create a migration request, and our team will migrate the website for you. To migrate a website, go to the Websites section and click on + Add website Migrate website:
