Download and install dropbox, if you haven’t already!

Step 2: Create a site folder inside DropBox

Your site will sit inside a shared folder inside DropBox. You can either create a new folder or start with a downloaded theme.

Rename the folder

This folder must be named to match the domain name, such as for a free site or for a paid site. Please note that once this folder has been shared, renaming it won’t update the domain name. If you would like to change the URL or if you made a mistake then please email to

Step 3: Share the folder

Share the folder

Once your site folder has been renamed, right click and share it through DropBox with Share requests need to be manually approved, but once this is done you will receive a confirmation email that your site has been setup.
