GLOBAL SETTINGS & GOING LIVE


Welcome to Series 5, Episode 1. Before we get started I should say that Series 5 is all about general housekeeping, with a few hints and tips and best practice. Consider this Series as a reference point should you ever need to come back to it. Some of the content throughout the Series will be obvious to some, though for beginners to website design there will be some valuable information. We look at going live, adding a logo, adding various page types and also the best practice for sizing images and uploading them to your website, which can be critical for both your speed of editing and site performance.


We start this Series with a look at the Global Settings area. This is a key area for your website and it is found by clicking on the top left Main Menu and selecting Settings. Here you can update your company information, the login details of the main website account administrator, plus your integrations with other key website services such as Google, MailChimp, Autopilot HQ, Hubspot, Slack and IFTTT.

In this Episode, we will focus on the process of going live, the video below walks you through the step by step process that should be fairly easy to follow when you are ready to broadcast your website to the world.

For more advanced users with little time to watch the video, here is the key info to set your website live: 

  • Set your A record (replace the @) to our IP address: 119.9.8.91
  • Add or replace the www CNAME with your-site-name.moble.site

Double check your website email addresses

Before you go live it's best practice to check that you are receiving emails from your website forms and everything is in working order. Your default notification emails need to be added here in the Global Setting area. Notification email addresses and 'Thank You' pages can also be set uniquely for each Form, simply go to the Forms area and modify the settings for each form separately.

The default types of email in the Global Settings area are:

  • Customer Email. This is the email address that your customers see when they receive an email response from your website. E.g. when they complete a form.
  • Admin Email. This is the email address that you receive enquiries and messages from your website.
  • Additional Admin Email. These are the extra email addresses that can receive website enquiries. Separate email addresses with a comma.
