Creating and maintaining a website can be daunting, often requiring extensive technical knowledge. Terms like domain, SSL certificates, hosting, and webpage can feel overwhelming. However, what if I told you that setting up a website from your existing Notion page is easier than you think?
In this guide, I will walk you through the simple steps to create a ready-made website using Sotion, making it easy and accessible for everyone.

Why Use a Custom Domain for Your Notion Page?

What is a Custom Domain?

A custom domain is the unique URL of your website that you own and manage. This domain is registered to you or your company, ensuring no one else can use the same name. Think of it as your personal property on the internet where your website resides.

Why Notion?

Many individuals, startups, and companies use Notion to create and manage their documents and content. With Notion's powerful features, you can easily create websites directly from your Notion pages. However, the default Notion links are not ideal for serious branding.

Benefits of a Custom Domain

  1. Professional Appearance: Replace the long, unattractive Notion links with a clean, branded URL, such as
  1. Brand Identity: Visitors can identify with your brand, enhancing trust and recognition.
  1. Enhanced Features: Customize branding, social media previews, and integrate analytics and third-party tools.
  1. Visitor Retention: Keep visitors on your website instead of redirecting them to Notion.

With Sotion, you have several options to control access to your Notion page:
  1. Open Access: The default setting allows anyone to view your content.
  1. Password Protection: Secure sensitive information with a customizable password page.
      • Adding a password to your site is convenient if you want to share sensitive information that can only be accessed if a user enters the correct password. Sotion will allow you to choose your own password and customize the password page with your own branding and instructions for the user.
      • Once the correct password is entered, the user will be taken directly to the Notion site at your custom domain.
  1. Email Sign-ups: Collect validated email addresses before granting access.
