  1. Click the Websites button in the upper toolbar.

    The Settings page opens:

  4. Click the SEO tab.

    If you wish to replace the default 'Website name', then enter a new title for your page. The title appears on the browser tab when you load your published site. You can also add a page description, choose if you want search engines to crawl the site, and enter a Google Analytics ID.

  5. Click the DOMAINS tab and select your domain/sub-domain from the dropdown list under 'Publish Destination'.

    If you had previously added hosting to your domain (e.g., Shared, VPS, Dedicated, DreamPress), selecting the domain from the dropdown gives you a warning that you already have hosting configured for the specific domain. If you proceed with adding Remixer to the domain, your old files will remain on the server, so no data is lost.

    Choosing a domain to use with Remixer just updates the DNS, so your site displays the content of your Remixer page. To proceed, check the box to confirm you understand this.

    Why are some domains not eligible?

    Non-eligible domains are any of the following:

    • A domain using an SSL certificate
    • A domain using a Unique IP
    • A dreamhosters.com subdomain
    • An unhosted domain listed under Manage Domains (DNS Only, Redirect, Cloaked)
  6. Click the Save settings button.
    Notice how it says 'UNPUBLISHED CHANGES', which means it's not live yet on your domain:

  7. On the 'Websites' screen, click the 'Publish' button.
    The website now shows as PUBLISHED:

If this is your first time publishing a Remixer site to this hostname, a DNS change is required and can take up to 24–48 hours for the site to appear on the hostname.
