You can publish your site in a sub-directory or own your own hosting account connected to your own domain.

Publish in subdirectory

If you have never published before, you can enter your desired name here. Provided it is not already in use. This name can not be changed afterwards.

As this name will be part of the URL address of your site you can only use a-z and 0-9.

After you have published once, the next publications will automatically be published in the once chosen sub-directory.

Publish with domain name

To maximize the benefits of having your own website, it is recommended to register your own domain name and rent hosting space.

This need not be expensive, e.g. at OVH a domain name costs the first year from €1.99 including 100 Mb hosting space (which is sufficient).

FTP data

The hosting provider provides the necessary FTP data, which you should copy meticulously into the fields. If you make a mistake here, your site will not be published.

If you need help with this, you should contact the hosting provider.

So you don't waist your time by learning some basic rules ;-)
