Yes, you can. When you click on "Publish Site" the third option in the dialog box allows you do download your site as a zipped file. You can then host it wherever you like.

Hi Nick H,

If you want to host your site somewhere else, follow these 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.

Hope this helps, please email us for any further assistance.

Regards
Kershnee

Hi Kadeem,

If you are hosting your site yourself you need to download your SynthaSite as a zip file and then upload it to your server.

Does this answer your question, or are you asking about something else?

Hi Kadeem, you would need to get your hosting company to help you with that. As Kershnee said above - 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.

So it's easier to host with SynthaSite!

Hi Kadeem - It's free to host your site with SynthaSite... The only cost would be to buy your domain name which is approximately $10 per year. To host your site, you would need to use a hosting company who would probably charge! See this tutorial on getting and setting up your domain: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/p...

Hi Jake,

The easiest and cheapest option (it's free) is to host your site with us using a free subdomain name from SynthaSite.

Do you mean that you have your own domain name (a dotcom)? If so, then you would need to talk to your domain name registrar (for example Godaddy.com or Register.com) about pointing your domain name to your SynthaSite site.

We are not in a position to teach you how to use PHP step by step. PHP is a programming language. You don't need to know PHP to follow those instructions. If you are hosting your site somewhere else, simply send the above instructions to your hosting service and they will do it for you. Otherwise, do it the easy way and publish your site with us!
