Get Started

In the following sections, you will find useful information on how to register, how to set up your website and your email account and more.


You can set up your art & design website in just a few clicks with DesArts. Click on < Login/Register > in the header and follow the simple instructions.

You can only register once by email address, and you will need to be 18 or above. If you are already registered and cannot remember your password, click on Forgot Password.

You can partially pre-complete the NEW MEMBER section by using one of the social media buttons. Note that Twitter does not provide any relevant information to support the registration process; so do not use this social media to register.

You will then be prompted to select an offer. You can find more information on our offers here. You can choose your name, your business name or a username. It will feature in the URL of your address and your email address. Once registered, you cannot change your selection; so think through your choice carefully!
When logging in for the first time, you will be directed to the home page of your dashboard.

The dashboard allows you to manage your website (pages, layout and CSS), your shop (coming soon), your social media connection, access your emails and much more.

Upon registration, your website has two pages already set-up by default: the Home page and Contact Me.

You will need to add new pages if you want to use a blog, sell online, publish your art/photos via a gallery, etc. You can do so via the Click on ‘new’ and set up your page.

If you try to use the blog or any other functionality requiring a new page, such as the gallery, you will be prompted to set a page up.

We designed several layouts for each type of page. For example, the blog has three different layouts you can choose from and the external gallery has four different layouts. Currently, you have access to the following types of pages:

  • Blog
  • Contact me
  • Photo gallery
  • Free page

We are developing additional functionalities and pages, such as the online shop, event calendars, etc. which will be rolled out in the next few weeks. We will inform you as soon as they become available.
Your webmail is already set up when you first log-in. You can access it in the menu by clicking on Webmail.

Your email address is < domainname@desarts.co.uk >

However, we invite you to define and set up a mind-blowing email signature. This is an easy way to promote yourself and attract some traffic on your new website.

Include useful information such as your name and your DesArts URL. More importantly, include a so-called ‘CALL FOR ACTION’ – e.g. ‘Visit my website yourchoice.desarts.co.uk’ or ‘Download your FREE copy of my latest eBook’ (yes you’ll be able to do that on DesArts soon!) or ‘Get a FREE entry to my next open studio’

Keep it simple and succinct! People won’t want to read a novel, and loading lots of images in your signature might earn your email a one-way ticket to the JUNK Email folder…
One of the 1st things you need to do upon registration is to complete your profile. You can do so in your dashboard by visiting <User Profile/About me>.

Start with your profile photo or logo. This image is featured on your contact information and also in DesArts’ global directory.

In this section, you can also complete your email signature, contact information such as telephone, change your password, change your address, etc.

You can also select the information you want to render visible on your external website by clicking on the small red/green eye (red not visible; green visible)
DesArts allows you to connect with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin, etc. – visit the Social Media Page in Settings to get connected.

Immediately start promoting your new website by linking your account to your social media. Once your account is linked, you can:
  • Share automatically any new blog publication on the connected social media; and
  • Login automatically by clicking on the relevant social media on the register/login page.
You can also select which social media you want visitors to use to share your blog, works and projects.

Finally, you can select to include links to your own social media by providing the URL address for each of them.

DesArts allows you to choose among many layouts for your blog page, gallery page, etc. via the menu. This is done page by page.

We will aim to extend the library of layouts available to you over time. You can change the layout by editing the relevant page. You can also add a carousel, sidebars and widgets via the same interface. If you have already published a blog post or created a photo gallery, don't worry! Your work won’t be lost.

Whatever you do, keep some consistency throughout in terms of colours and layout. Your website is made for you, and more importantly, your audience. Consider what they would want to see…
