In this Article

Any page you build in Notion can be turned into a public page, creating a fully navigable (and searchable) website with links. Publish a blog, your resume or portfolio, job listings, a landing page... the possibilities are as wide as the web itself 🪄

If you want to let anyone on the internet view your Notion page, you'll want to make it public.

  • Click Share on the page and go to the Publish menu.

  • Click Publish to web.

When the page is published you can choose some additional options:

  • Link expiring: Time that the link will automatically expire.

  • Allow editing: Any logged in Notion user can edit the page.

  • Allow comments: Any logged in Notion user add comments to this page.

  • Allow duplicate as template: Users can duplicated the page to their own workspace.

  • Search engine indexing: Allows page to search up in search engine results.

Note: When you publish a Notion page to the web, the webpage’s metadata may include the names, profile photos, and email addresses associated with any Notion users that have contributed to the page.

When your Notion page is public, anyone on the web can read it and interact with certain components:

  • Subpages are also published by default, along with any of their subpages.

    • You can restrict subpage permissions to hide them from public view!

  • For databases, viewers can toggle between views and open the pages they contain.

  • Your site's navigation appears as a breadcrumb menu at the top for all viewers.

  • At the top right, people can Search the content of your page (and all its sub-pages), or click Duplicate to add an exact, editable replica of your page to their own Notion workspace (if you've toggled this feature on).

  • If you have Allow editing turned on, folks who have your link and are logged into a Notion account will be able to make edits to your page.

If you have pages shared to the web, you'll be able to choose which one you'd like to display as a default home page, reachable at

  • Navigate to Settings & members in your sidebar, then Settings.

Does Notion support custom domains?

Can you link to a specific section of a page, like an anchor link?

Click the ⋮⋮ icon next to any block and choose Copy link in the menu. This will copy the anchor link to that block to your clipboard.

Tables of contents work on public pages, so you can also use that tool to create anchor links to headings on your public page. To add a table of contents, type /table of and press enter.

Is there a way to see a list of all my public pages?

Not at the moment, unfortunately 😓 We'll work on that!

If I have already shared lots of links to public Notion pages in my workspace — will those old links still work?

Yes! Your old links will still work. If the link was created after June 29, 2021, it will take folks to an intermediate page where they can click on the new link.

I shared my public page URL but it takes people to a page with a "Continue to external site by following the link below" error message. What did I do wrong?

It sounds like you may be sharing the URL copied from your browser, rather than the direct URL for the public page.

To get the URL that will take users directly to your public page, click on the "Share" button at the top right corner of your page, then click "Copy link." This URL will have your workspace domain at the beginning of the URL (i.e.

If I change my workspace domain name, will my public page URLs still work?

If you change your workspace domain, any existing links starting with the previous domain ( will no longer work. You'll need to re-share the new links.

You can find the new links by clicking on "Share" at the top right corner of the page and clicking "Copy link."

Can I password protect a page?

Not at the moment, but it's on our to-do list! For the time being, you can share your page privately by using the Invite a person button in the Share menu at the top of a page, although they will need to have a Notion account in order to view it.

If they don't have a Notion account, you can enable Public access in the Share menu, and ensure that search engine indexing is disabled for privacy. That said, anyone who has the link will be able to see it on the web.
