Website Migration

We have given the old version of Zoho Sites a complete overhaul. The current builder provides a tailored experience that caters to the website needs of any industry. Its advanced customization options help you build beautiful, intuitive, and modular websites. 


Things to look forward to in the new version:

Even with great content at your disposal, presentation and design may be a challenge. The new UI with upgraded tools and customization options will help you create engaging websites easily. 

 

  • New UI

The new look and feel of Zoho Sites strikes a balance between clean design and robust usability. Navigating within the website builder is straightforward and all integrations are just a click away.

The clutter-free interface offers a range of advanced features, including pre-built websites sections, updated page elements, and support for dynamic imagery. This update also expands the customizations available in the product for greater creative flexibility.

 

  • Responsive templates

We offer 45+ Templates of which most are industry based and come with captivating imagery and supporting text. Every website you create is automatically optimized for Desktops, tablets, and phones. You can preview your website to see how it will look on these devices.

  • Drag-and-drop Builder

You can create, add, and customize your website by simply dragging and dropping any item that you may need to build your website with ease.

  • Elements

Our range of elements enable you to add text, images, audio, and video to your website. Each element comes with individual customization options to give you the flexibility you need.

 

Quick customization pop-up toolbox:

When editing elements or sections, a pop-up toolbox offers design and formatting options to personalize the content layout and properties. The tools in the pop-up are element-specific, which makes customization quicker and more precise.

  • Pre-built sections

Design your site content quickly and easily with these pre-designed layouts. We provide over 150 layouts that can help you showcase your work brilliantly. 

  • Dynamic Backgrounds

Create an engaging and immersive browsing experience with the fix and scroll options. Fixing images and videos in place provides a parallax effect while scrolling over your website. 

  • Sticky Content

Effectively convey your brand's key message with sticky content. You can fix certain sections and elements on your page so it follows as you scroll. It also creates an effect of the content in the background moving as certain sections stay fixed. 

  • Advanced Visual Editor

The Advanced Visual Editor allows you intricately customize visual aspects of your website. With the earlier Visual Editor, you could change the color scheme and the way your header and banner appears and operates. 

Now, you can edit the common aspects of the elements on your website. Unlike the element tool box, which only customizes individual elements, the Advanced Visual Editor helps you customize selected elements site-wide. Components like site name, sub menu, navigation bar theme, and member portal, to name a few, can be customized as well.


Why migrate?

We will be stopping development and feature updates with the older version of Zoho Sites. We suggest you migrate to the newer version to continue growing and expanding your business. 

 

What is migration? 

Migration is a process where we take the content of your website and upload it to one of the new version templates. All content such as text, images, audio, video and blog posts will be transferred. 

 

What happens when you migrate?

Your website will be fully functional on the new UI. You can switch templates at any time and add any customization you require. You forms and form data will not get migrated, so forms need to be re-added. Integrations will also have to be reconnected.

 

How do you migrate?

Just drop us an email at support@zohosites.com with your request to migrate along with your site URL and ID and we will take care of the rest.


Note: Migration is a process where content gets transferred. When this happens, you may need to restructure the way your content appears. You could try creating your website from scratch on the new version by copying and pasting your content from your existing website. This allows you to customize your content in a way which suits your requirement.
