Publish a Website

Once you have completed designing the website for yourself or your customers, you will of course want to publish it so that it can be of use to you. In this article we will explain how to publish your website with Sitejet in a few simple steps.

How do you publish your website?

Your website is finished and you are satisfied? Then it should certainly be published online now. With Sitejet this is very easy. There are two simple options in the Website Project Manager
  1. Please log in to Sitejet and visit the Website Project Manager
  2. To keep track of the website's progress you can move the website to the status "Publish". You can either click "Register domain" or use the ellipsis icon (...) next to the name to open a dropdown menu where you can select "Manage domains" to open the domain manager (If you're using the list view instead of the kanban view you can open the dropdown menu by clicking the "Actions" button).

If you're in the Detail View of the website, please change the status to "Publish" and click on the "Publish" button on the right side. 

Please keep in mind, that you need a paid Sitejet plan to publish a website. If you don't have a plan the domain manager will automatically redirect you to choose your preferred plan. 

When you have a paid plan you will see the domain manager and the possibility to add a new domain by clicking "+ Domain" in the top right corner. Please enter your preferred domain where the website should be accessible and click on "Search". If the domain is available you will see the button "Register domain".

When going through the registration process you will see the domain details (also called "domain handle") which display all information about the domain owner that is necessary to register the domain. The domain details are pre-filled based on the information in the customer data of that website. Please keep in mind that changing the information in the registration form will also change the customer data. 

Once you registered a domain with Sitejet (or connected a third-party domain) you can publish the website by selecting "Publish" in the "Usage" dropdown menu. 

Depending on your plan you have 1, 10, or 50 hosted websites included. The costs for each additional hosted website can be found on our pricing page. If you have any questions about this, our article on plans and invoices will certainly help you.

If your domain has been registered with Sitejet, you can make your own DNS settings via "DNS". 

Secure a website domain with a SSL certificate

An SSL certificate confirms the authenticity and integrity of a website. In the World Wide Web, SSL certificates ensure the privacy of online interactions. Customers trust websites that are considered secure much more. Current certificates are the standard in today's Internet. 
The activation of the certificate is simple with Sitejet. In the Domain Manager, check the box next to "SSL". The Domain Manager will then automatically create an SSL certificate for this site. From now on, the website will be transferred via a secure HTTPS connection. 
TIP: The creation of the certificate can take up to 24 hours, in some cases even longer. In the meantime, the website will still be accessible via the unencrypted HTTP connection.

Point an existing domain to a Sitejet website

If you already have a domain that you want to publish your website onto, you also need to add that domain to the list (see above). But instead of registering the domain, please set the following DNS settings for the existing domain in the interface of the provider where the domain is hosted. Please keep in mind that changes to the DNS can take up to 24 hours to take effect across the internet. You can find detailed instructions on how to connect a third-party domain here.

Name Type

88.198.22.168

88.198.22.168
@ (or blank)

www A
136.243.5.208

To enable e-mail services through Sitejet, please also add the following DNS settings:

MX mx1.sitehub.io
MX mx2.sitehub.io
TXT v=spf1 mx -all

Common mistakes

  • Do not put the full domain name (e.g. www.your-website.com) into the Name field. If your domain is your-website.com, you need to write @www or nothing into the Name field
  • Missing A record for www: Please make sure that you set A records for both names, your-website.com and www.your-website.com
  • Existing "AAAA-records": Remove these if you are still seeing the old website on some devices
  • Subdomain: If you have set up a subdomain, please check the DNS entries here as well. For more information on how to set up a subdomain, see our article.
