Step Four

Publishing your Website

When you are ready to publish your website, simply head over to the settings page and select the domain tab. Then enter the desired name of your website. You would see a registration box will pop.

After you are done with signing up and entering your credentials, you would see a subscription box popup providing you with option of purchasing a domain and hosting for the website with IM-Creator. If you don’t want this, then don’t worry as there is a work around. At the top there is an offer saying you can get a free URL and hosting if you like them on Facebook. Select that option.

You will be able to see your URL after you have liked IM-Creator on Facebook.

Now simply click the exit button on this URL box. You would once again see the editing application. At the top right corner you will see a big “Publish” button. On hitting that button, the URL box will again pop up offering you the addition domain and hosting. You only need to care about that if you wish to secure a custom domain such as www.example-domain.com. Clicking on your website URL will take you to your newly built website.
