In this extension, you will publish your website online.

Publishing your website makes it available to a wider audience, so people can view and interact with the blog you created.

To do this, you will: Preview your website, Publish your website, And unpublish your website.

To begin, open your website.

First, preview your website.

It’s helpful to see how your website looks online before you publish it to see if there’s anything you want to change.

For example, when you preview your website, you might decide that you want the banner that contains your title to appear larger.

Exit out of the preview, and make any changes.

Then, publish your website.

Before your website goes online, Google Sites will suggest a web address.

You can use the suggested address or make a custom address.

A custom address might make it easier for people to search for and find your website, or it might express the purpose of your website better than the suggested address.

Next, manage who can view your website.

For example, you can make your website accessible to anyone online or to specific people you invite.

Anything online can be shared and viewed by strangers.

If what you share on your website is meant only for your friends, you may want to limit access to your site.

Now, you’re ready to publish your website.

Your website is live!

Anyone with access may view your website online.

Finally, if you want to remove your site for any reason, unpublish it.

This takes it off the internet.

You can always publish it again later.

Now, it’s your turn: Preview your website, Publish your website, And unpublish your website.
