Publishing your site

You can publish your site at any time from the top toolbar of the Editor. Even after publishing, you can edit your site as much as you want. Whenever you make a change, simply publish again to make sure the changes go live.

To publish your site:

  1. Click Publish at the top right of the Editor.
  2. (Optional) Click View Site to be taken to your live site.
  3. Click Done to return to the Editor.
Clicking Save won't make your changes live. After saving, make sure to click Publish to show the updates on your live site.

Viewing your live site

After your site has been published, it automatically appears online and can be seen by anyone entering your free site URL (accountname.wixsite.com/site-name) or domain name.
You can also access your live site from the Editor. Click Site on the top bar of the Editor and click View Site.
