1 What are the Online Presence Portal and the Online Presence Builder?
The control panel, now your Online Presence Portal, is an intuitive interface which connects you to the complete suite of business applications and services available with Website Solutions— giving you the ability to manage your online presence.
Using the applications and services contained in the portal, you can build websites, operate an online store, manage security, write blogs, create photo albums and chat systems. We have updated our current website building tool with the new Online Presence Builder tool to help you manage and build your website. This new Online Presence Builder is designed to help you to build and update a more responsive website. It also enables your website to be viewed proper format on desktop, mobile and tablet devices.
2 What happens on the day my Control Panel is upgraded:
Depending upon when you access the portal on September 9th, you may experience a delay in accessing the portal or some delays in accessing certain advanced tools within the portal. If you are still experiencing issues accessing your portal or tools the following day, please do not hesitate to contact technical support. You will be able to access your Webmail, Online Fax or other services through our website (https://webhosting.att.com/client-login/) as usual.
3 Online Presence Builder
3.1 Does the Online Presence Builder cost extra or affect the bill of my current website plan?
No. There is no additional cost to you. The Online Presence Builder and associated updates will have no impact to your current website plan bill. They are automatically included in your current hosting package beginning September 9, 2015.
3.2 Why don’t I see the new Online Presence Builder in my account? Online Presence Builder will be available to customers with a website hosting plan. If you are a Website Solutions customer, but do not have a website plan with us, then visit webhosting.att.com to see our website plan options or call 888.WEB.HOST to speak with a sales representative and for more information.
3.3 Does the Online Presence Builder impact my current website? No. Currently, your existing website will not change or be affected. You are still able to use your EasySiteWizard website tool. However, if you would like to refresh your website, then we suggest you consider creating a fresh new look using our new tool.

3.4 How do I use the new Online Presence Builder? First, select a new design from a selection of brand new, stylish designs created by professionals (and remember you can change your design at any time). Customizing your site is as easy as dragging and dropping your elements onto the page. Just pick your element, for example a heading, text or image, place it on the page, and double-click to edit – what you see is what you get.
If you have an existing website and have chosen to refresh it with new designs, images and content, then when you click Publish on a new website with Online Presence Builder, your fresh, new website will replace your existing one.
3.5 Do I need to build a separate mobile site with the Online Presence Builder? Online Presence Builder automatically adjusts your website to display accurately on most every device: desktop, mobile or tablet. You will not need to spend your time in developing a separate, mobile-friendly site. Your website will automatically adapt to the device your visitors are using, because the designs were built using ‘responsive design’. When designing and editing your website, you will have the opportunity to preview how it looks on a desktop, tablet and mobile device.
3.6 Can I change my design once I select it? Yes, you can change your design at any time. Select “Design” in the tool to view the available designs. You also have the option to preview how existing content will look with the new design before making the change.
3.7 Can I transfer my existing website to the new Online Presence Builder? Not at this time. The new Online Presence Builder has fresh new designs that are SEO-friendly.
Once you pick your template, you can easily copy and paste text and upload your existing images into the new builder. You might take this opportunity to refresh your content and make sure your details are up-to-date, and you’ll have fantastic, new site when you’re done.
