Publishing & Domain names

Pagestead allows end-users to publish sites and pages using one or more of the following options:

  1. Sub folder publishing
  2. Sub domain publishing
  3. Custom domain publishing

Sub folder publishing

The site or page is published in a sub folder at the domain name used to host Pagestead. For example, assume Pagestead is installed on the domain http://mydomain.com. An end-user has built a page and decided to host it in a sub folder named “mysite”. This would make the page available at http://mydomain.com/mysite. To allow end-users to publish sites or pages in this manner, no additional configuration or setup is required.

Sites published in a sub folder will follow the protocol as set by the main application: if the main application is using SSL (https), the sites published on sub domains will be available over SSL as well.

Sub domain publishing

The site or page is published in a sub domain of the domain name used to host Pagestead. For example, assume Pagestead is installed on the domain http://mydomain.com. An end-user has built a page and decided to host it in the sub domain named “mysite”. This would make the page available at http://mysite.mydomain.com. In order to make sub domain publishing available on Pagestead additional configuration is required. To learn more about how to configure your DNS to allow for sub domain publishing, please have a look at this knowledge base article.

Sites published on a sub domain will follow the protocol as set by the main application: if the main application is using SSL (https), the sites published on sub domains will be available over SSL as well.

Custom domain publishing

The site or page is published on a custom domain name, owned by and under control of the end-user. For example, assume Pagestead is installed on the domain http://mydomain.com. An end-user has built a page and decided to host it on the domain name “www.myawesomesite.com”. In order to make use of the this option additional configuration is required. To learn more about configuring your Pagestead application to allow for custom domain publishing, please read this knowledge base article.
