So you generated & downloaded an HTML from what? Thankfully, GumSheet's standalone HTML's are super easy to use and can be hosted virtually anywhere.

As a preliminary step, you can open the HTML file locally in your browser (ie. Chrome, Safari) — just to make sure everything looks right.

We recommend the following steps for going live with a site generated by GumSheet:

  1. The easiest (and cheapest) way to host an HTML website is often using Github Pages, which offers custom domain support. Simply download all your files into a folder, create a new Github Pages repo, and follow the instructions here:

    Creating a GitHub Pages site

  2. If you don't choose Github Pages to host your website, you may need to take the following additional step to ensure all links between your landing pages work properly:

In order to set up your URLs properly so that /example resolves to the same page as /example.html you may need to add the following .htaccess file to the root directory of your website:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^([^\\.]+)/$ $1.html [NC,L]
RewriteRule (.+)/$ /$1.html [L,R]

**Important:** If you use Github Pages (or some other hosts), this URL routing may be automatically pre-configured for you, in which case you can skip this step!
