Can I choose when my website goes live?

Once you subscribe you can choose when you want your site to go live . If you have a domain name set up ready to use with your site then your site should appear live instantly when you publish. If you still need to set up a domain name with your website, then you can find out how to do so by clicking here.

You can publish your website right now by following the steps below:

  1. Log in to your Create account
  2. Click "Publish" from the top menu
  3. Click the green "Publish" button or "Publish Your Site" from the drop-down menu
  4. Click "Publish" (or "Publish & Share" if you want to publish and automatically Tweet about your website).

The 'Publish To Web' screen.

And that's it, your website is live!!

If you are still on your Create free trial at this stage, you will need to subscribe before you go live. Don't worry, you will be prompted to subscribe as you try to publish and you will just need to follow the steps that pop up on-screen to do this. 

Updating after you've published

Once your website is live, you can continue to update and change it as often as you like! Nothing is set in stone, so if you wanted to change the colour scheme and layout of your site every day for example, albeit unlikely, there is nothing stopping you.

Bear in mind that each time you make a change to your Shop, it will go live immediately. Any changes you make to your site's design or content, however, will need to be published to the web again to update the changes to your live website.
