Lesson 3: Going Live!
When you go "live" in Squarespace, you don't really go live, per se. By having the cover page we put in place already visible on your website + domain, your website technically is live! But to make sure any future visitors to your website reach your actual homepage, we’ll need to set it is as your homepage!
In this lesson we will:
Step 1: Set your homepage to live!
Go to Home < Pages < Not Linked
Setting your newly designed homepage as "live" is really quite simple! So the final step in your progress is possibly the easiest.
1. Hover your mouse on the Homepage you created and select the settings symbol.
2. Scroll to the bottom of the pop-up window. Select "Set as homepage". Select “Confirm” and then “Save” in the bottom right hand corner.
3. The tiny house should now be located beside your Homepage!
Your website now has your designed homepage as the "Home", which means when a visitor lands on your site, that page will be the first thing they see. While your site was always technically live, visitors will now be able to see all your hard work and have access to the entirety of your site. So start giving out that URL!
Congratulations!!! The final step is done and your website is LIVE!! You’ve learnt so much throughout these 5 modules and now have a website you can be proud of.
