# Create New Website 2019 (archived)
This User Guide page is relevant for the Old Website Editor only.
To create a website for your event, click Website at the bottom of the main Auction Dashboard menu.
The first time you access the Website manager page, there will be a message: No website has been created for this event. Click the Create Website button to start the process.
After clicking on the "Create Website" button, the Add Website screen will appear.
There are two required settings (Template and Website Address) needed to create the website.
The Template will automatically set up your website with the elements that you will most likely need although you can still customize the website to suit your specific requirements.
# Website Address
Your website will have a public address in the form of
charityauction.bid/SOMETHING You can chose the
SOMETHING portion of the address. The default address will be generated from the auction/event name.
You can only use letters, numbers and the
_ (underscore) character when creating your website address. DO NOT use spaces, or other characters such as punctuation marks, as these are not compatible with website addresses.
Check the preview of the website address to make sure it is user-friendly, not too long, and relevant to your event.
# Website Comment
You can optionally use this text field to add a descriptive comment about the specific website which can be useful if you have multiple websites associated with a single auction/event.
Click the Save Website blue button to complete the website creation process.
You can now click one of the blue hyperlinks to see what your new website looks like.
