If I host the site I created on SynthaSite somewhere else, can I still make changes to my website after it is published?

i dont think so..!!
if use redirect it, then editing is possible. But if you host it somewhere, you would simply download the whole setup, and upload on other host, so you wont be able to edit it with synthasite.

I m not 100% sure about my answer

Because the first response annoyer made was "yes you can" and after your first reply about not being sure annoyer responded "i think monica's right"

You're fine! I just need people to respond who know the answer instead of spewing out whatever they want to say. I appreciate your response & honesty.

Hi computer struggle

Monica and annoyer are both right in a way.

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 (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.

This is an excellent question and a very important consideration when deciding where to host your site. Thank you for asking it.

I hope this information helps you to decide which option is right for you.

Best wishes
Monique

Yeah, that sure was an option hat came to my mind as well, but uploading the whole set up again and again is a tedious job, isn't it?
