What is a +Site?

A +Site is a subdomain of your main site. +Sites can be used for a variety of purposes including custom websites for your clients, custom sites for your workshops, or maybe a special package and pricing site. With your Showit subscription, you are able to create and publish an unlimited number of +Sites.

Looking for beautiful and easy pre-built plus site options? Check out our Add-Ons section in the Showit Design Market.

How to Add a +Site

Start by first creating a new site design in Showit.

1) Click on your name in the lower-left corner of Showit.

2) Choose “Create a New Design” and select a template to start customizing.

3) Customize your site design and then follow the steps below to set up the custom +Site Subdomain.

Set a +Site's Subdomain

Now that you have customized a site design that you would like to use for your +site, follow these steps when you’re ready to publish a +Site and assign a +Site Domain.

1) Open the site design you want to publish as a +site.

2) In the top left of the Design App, under the Site tab, go to your Site Settings

3) Click to “Edit” the Custom Domain setting

4) Select a current domain or ADD +SITE SUBDOMAIN

5) Save the custom domain setting and click to Publish the site

Note: Be careful not to select your MAIN DOMAIN in the Domain Settings drop-down menu. If you do select your main domain and hit publish it will publish over your existing main design.

Trouble With a +Site Not Publishing?

If you’re experiencing trouble getting your custom +Site subdomain to load for you it’s possible your domain needs to be configured for +Sites to properly work. Click the ? chat icon on the bottom right of Showit to contact our support team to help get it configured for you.
