Switching Your Site Template
4 min read
While building your site, we understand that you might have a change of heart and want to switch to another template. While it's not possible to switch to a different template for a site you already created, you can create as many sites as you want in your account. This means you can start over with a new template at any point.
Once you have chosen your new template, you can import elements, pages and media from your old site, and transfer your Premium plan and domain to it.
Step 1: Choose your new template
Get started on building the site you want by selecting a new template from our huge range of professionally designed templates. There are a variety of options and categories available including portfolio sites, business services, eCommerce templates and more, so you can choose the best style for your brand needs.
Step 2: Copy elements and pages from your old site
To make the process much easier when starting again with a new template, you can copy and paste elements and pages from your old site, or save and re-use design assets, depending on which Editor you are using.

You can also copy or save designs (using My Designs or Design Assets) from any template you like, and then add them to your site.
Step 3: Import media from your old site
All the media from your existing site is saved under Site Files in your Media Manager. Site Files folders can be accessed from the Media Manager from all the sites in your account. If you want to add any file from your existing site to your new site, just import it from the Site Files folder.

When starting over with a new template, it's important to note that there are some features that you can transfer over to the new site and some that you can't.
