I have got webspace and a domain with 1and1. Am I able to use Synthasite to design my website, and then export it to my webspace? I know i could just forward my traffic to the synthasite webspace to achieve it... but would i still get my domain name in the URL bar?

Hi algreen,

If you want to host your site elsewhere, click on the down-arrow next to "Publish my Site" and choose "Download site". You will then be able to download your site as a zipped file and you will be given the following instructions:-

Hosting with your own service provider:
Copy the site to the webroot of a php 5.2.x enabled web server
* Ensure that the "classes/work/templates_c" directory is writable by the web server (chmod 777 classes/work/templates_c on Unix / Linux boxes)

Please note that if you elect to host your site elsewhere, we can only support you with the process of creating your site, and downloading it. Thereafter all support relating to the hosting of your site will become the sole responsibility of your service provider.

The site you built will always be available in your SynthaSite account for editing and updating even if you download your site as a zipped file and host it elsewhere. However, to put your changes live you would need to re-download your site and re-upload it to the servers of your hosting provider each time. If you host your site with us for free (either using a free subdomain or a domain of your own) you can update it with a single click - so it is a lot easier to make changes. Let us know if you would like more information on how to do that.

Hi Algreen

Just to add to what Marije has said, if you forward your domain to your site you will keep your own URL and it will appear in the address bar when people visit your site. There is no charge for this, and also no charge for hosting your site with us.

I really recommend this option. In addition to being free, it is also much less of a hassle. All you need to do is log into your DNS config panel with 1&1 and set up an A record to point to our IP address: 208.75.208.172

I hope this helps. If you have any further questions or concerns, please let us know!
