Creating a Website


This section will take you through the process of setting up and managing your Plusto website. The process involves the following steps:
  1. Creating a Plusto Website
  2. Registering and transferring a Domain
  3. Designing your Website
  4. Editing your Website Pages
  5. Changing your Website Preferences
  6. Setting up your Product Categories
  7. Managing your Website Banners
To create a freestanding website through Plusto you need to:
  • Own a Website Domain
  • Be a registered seller on Plusto
Plusto will need to host your website on our servers in the USA, to allow us to completely integrate our system into your website and provide you with all the unique features such as multi language support, currency conversion, CargoKey Integration, WorldTariff Integration, FedEx Integration, Google News feeds and more.

Web Definitions

  • Domain Name: The name that identifies a website. (Like: plusto.com)
  • URL: Abbreviation of Uniform Resource Locator - the address of a web page on the World Wide Web.
  • Sub Domain URL: A URL where the website is a sub-domain of a primary website. Example: A website with the URL http://furnigo.plusto.com is a sub domain of http://plusto.com.
  • Domain Extensions: Country domain names are sometimes referred to as Country Code TLDs (Top Level Domains). Each country has its own domain extension assigned to it, generally designated with two letters. Click here to see a list of Countries and their related domain extensions, as well as links to where you can register domains for each domain extension.
If you wish to start a Plusto Sub-Domain website, you do not need to own a domain as the website address will be http://username.plusto.com.
Plusto does not register domains, and the domain that you own or register will always belong to you. Should you decide to stop using your Plusto Website in the future, you will be in control of your domain.

To create a website on Plusto:
  1. Create your new website in the My Website section of My Plusto.
  2. Click My Plusto
  3. Click Website Details under the My Website section
  4. Select the type of website that you would like to create
  5. If you do not yet have a domain, you can use the website search service to see if the domain you are looking for is available.
  6. Click create your website
