Sitebeat gives you 2 options when publishing your website live. You can publish your site to your Sitebeat Domain or use a Subdomain of sitebeat.crazydomains.com for free. In this article, we will be focusing on the Sitebeat Domain and how to use it. If you want to learn more about the free Sitebeat Subdomain, click here.
What is a Sitebeat Domain
Sitebeat Domain is the Domain Name you connected to Sitebeat upon purchase.
Your Sitebeat registration is packaged with a Domain Name of your choice. Whether you connected an existing Domain Name to Sitebeat upon purchase, or chose to register a new Domain Name along with Sitebeat, the system automatically recognises this as the web address that you can use for publishing your Sitebeat website.
Using the Sitebeat Domain
Using the Sitebeat Domain means you are ready to publish your website live so that, if someone enters the Sitebeat Domain in a browser, e.g. mydomain.com, they are able to view your website from their device. To do this, you need to access the Sitebeat Dashboard and publish your site.
Follow the instructions below to publish your site and use your Sitebeat Domain:
- Click Sign Up / Log In at the top of this page.
- Select Account Manager from the drop-down menu.
- Enter your username and password then, click Log In.
- Click the Visit My Account button.
- Click Sitebeat from the menu at the top of the page.
- Click on the Sitebeat plan that you wish to manage.
If you only have one Sitebeat plan, you will automatically be redirected to its management page.
- Hover your mouse pointer over the [+] Icon at the upper right-hand section of the page and click Build Now.
- You will be routed to the Sitebeat Dashboard's Sites page.
- Hover your mouse pointer over a project and click the [...] Ellipsis Icon.
- Click Publish. A pop-up box will appear.
- Select Sitebeat Domain and click Publish.
Congratulations! You just published your website to your Sitebeat Domain.
Below are 2 other ways you can find the Publish option:
- Click Edit to proceed with Editor mode, and click the Publish button at the top-right corner of the page.
- Click Preview from the top-right corner of the Sitebeat Editor to proceed with Preview mode first, and click the Publish button at the bottom-right corner of the page.
The published website will have a  Published Icon showing on the project if you view it on your Sitebeat Dashboard's Sites page.
While you are able to work on a maximum of 3 projects, you can only publish 1 website live.
Note: If you already have 1 project or website published live and you try to publish another website, you will get a Limit Reached error. Click on the [x] mark at the top right-hand corner of the page to go back. You will need to Unpublish one project to be able to publish another one.
To Unpublish a website, go to your Sitebeat Dashboard's Sites page and hover your mouse pointer over the published website, or the project that has the  Published Icon on it, then click the [...] Ellipsis Icon and select Unpublish.
Why Can't I Select Sitebeat Domain?
If you can't select the Sitebeat Domain option when trying to publish a website, this is because it is currently assigned as a Primary Domain in another project within your Sitebeat. This is usually the project that you recently published live.
To fix this, you need to open that project and disconnect the Domain using the steps below:
- Follow steps 1-7 above to access the Sitebeat Dashboard.
- On the Sites page of your Sitebeat Dashboard, hover your mouse pointer over the project/website that is using the Sitebeat Domain as its Primary Domain and click EDIT.
- Click Settings from the left-side menu, then click Domains.
- Click the Domain Name under Sitebeat Domains.
- Click on the Disconnect Button.
You've now successfully disconnected the Domain Name and you can now publish a different project to your Sitebeat Domain.
Congratulations! You just learned how to use the Sitebeat Domain to publish your website/project in Sitebeat.
