That Website Guy’s business website builder has been in development since 2011 with the focus of providing simple tools to build, host, and manage a fully customisable and responsive business website or ecommerce store that looks & works beautifully on all devices, for selling ANYTHING.
We originally offered a service building business websites, but after a high demand for Ecommerce features from local businesses, we now offer an instant, simple, “DIY” solution with a competitive 3-tier subscription package depending on your needs. You can now create your own great looking fully responsive online website in a matter of minutes without any coding knowledge whatsoever!
We literally take care of everything for you: everything from your hosting, right down to the unlimited amount of friendly advice and support should you get stuck at any point – We've got you covered!
When you sign up the first thing you’ll need to do is enter a few basic details like your username and email address..
Next you can tell us a few things about the website you want to create. We’ll set you up with a free temporary domain too! It will be https://thatwebsiteguy.net/YOURSITE, and you can easily link up your own domain name later.
Finally we’ll need to verify you’re not a spam-bot, so we ask you to check your email and click the verification link in the email we sent you.
Once you’re done, that’s it – you’re in. You can even view your nice new shiny website! It will be a little empty, but that’s where all the fun starts – Adding your pages and products.
Designing Your Website
Designing a professional website is easy with That Website Guy! Simply select a style and customise to your heart's content!
We've built just about every option into a live customisation experience so you can see how the changes will look live as you make them.
There's also responsive buttons so you can see how your site looks on desktop, tablet, and mobile with the click of a button.
Widgets & Menus
Widgets are little chunks of content that can be included in your site template - like a login box, search bar, or Shop Cart contents.
Menus are used to help visitors navigate your site.
Adding widgets and menus can also be done through the live customiser. Rearranging widgets and menus is simple with drag and drop.
It's now super-simple to design great pages for your website with our brand new Page Builder tool, which allows you to build pages directly from the front-end of your site using drag & drop to insert content modules, rows, and columns directly into your page.
We've included a selection of useful content modules from a basic text box or image - to slideshows, tabbed sections, and more.
Rows and columns can also be given background images, colours, or videos, and even utilise the ever-popular parallax effect.
Managing Your Shop
Managing your shop is simple, and is only getting simpler. You can do it anywhere/anytime thanks to our responsive admin panel, meaning you can work on your PC, Laptop, Tablet, even your mobile!
We give you the power and control to sell just about anything beautifully. That includes simple things like art pieces, virtual items like software, and even variable products like t-shirts with different colour and size options.
You can manage stock and inventory levels, as well as taxes and shipping rates which will all be automatically worked out for your customers.
We support PayPal Standard Payments, which is one of the most popular and most trusted Payment Gateways in use online all over the world, allowing you to receive payments instantly from anywhere and have the funds transferred into your bank account the same day!
Once your customer adds an item to their shopping cart and then proceeds to checkout, they will enter a billing and/or shipping address, and then be transferred over to PayPal’s Secure server to complete the transaction, where they will enter their Credit Card Details (or PayPal username & Password if they have one), and then be returned back to your website once Payment is complete.
A PayPal account is free, and the only fees for accepting payments using this Gateway start at just 3.4% + £0.20 per transaction for UK customers. No monthly fees or minimum usage, that’s it. (Source)
Cheque / Cash on delivery
As standard we also allow you to accept payments via Cheque/Postal order, and Cash on delivery – not that anybody these days uses cheques any more, but it’s great for testing the checkout process.
We support the Stripe payment gateway for customers on our Ultimate package plan with an SSL certificate. Stripe allows you to accept card payments directly on your site avoiding any potential confusion and boosting your professional image. Stripe also boasts cheaper fees for UK merchants, as low as 1.4% + 20p. Payments get transferred to your bank on a 7-day rolling basis. (Source)
We support the CoinPayments payment gateway which allows you to accept cryptocurrency payments on your website including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, Verge, and many more. Fees for this gateway are as low as 0.5%.

We offer an incredibly simple 1 Page product listing tool, so it takes just a few minutes to add a product, not hours.
Stunningly Responsive Style
A lot of effort has been put into developing a stylish, fully responsive, and fully customisable theme engine, making sure sites look amazing on all devices – from PCs to Mobiles, and even Tablets!
We’ve made it as customisable as possible so that every website can look unique.

And if you don’t like what we offer? That’s what the unlimited time free trial is for!
From the founder:
I’ve spent several years working as a website designer/developer in Norfolk, creating websites for various local small businesses – most of which already had websites set-up with other “Professional” big-name companies.
After taking one look at many of these big-name sites, I was appalled.. They looked awful!
The “Back-end” Admin panels were a disgrace too, with terrible usability and over-complicatedness (One service provider actually made the client go through and submit several pages in several different sections on the website just to add a single product to the store, taking hours!).
I’d love to name and shame but it’s really not good ethics – these service providers are only trying to make a living – just like us.
But the bottom line is competition is healthy for everyone. We can provide a similar service (better in most cases) than these “Big name” companies – and we can give you a pretty good deal on it too.
If you’re currently with another “YOUR WEBSITE HERE” company and you’re not happy with what you’re paying for, get in touch and we’ll see if we can out-do them for you.
Unlimited time totally free no obligation trial.
No contracts, no payment details required...
