Find Your Path

How do you want to add a site? You have the following options:

  • Create from scratch
  • Create a site from a Custom Upstream
  • Migrate a site that's hosted elsewhere

Would you like to create your site using the dashboard (which will guide you through the process), or use the command line?

If you are a part of a Professional team that has Custom Upstreams, you can build a site from an existing Upstream.

Is your site archive greater than 500MB, or does it only exist on your local machine?
