We have made enhancements in three different areas on Zoho Sites. These minor updates have been made for better functionality before we bring out some really major changes that we’ve been working on.
- Thumbnails in File Manager
- One-click protection of all pages
- Generation of sitemap
File Manager gets a Facelift
The collection of images you uploaded will be listed on the file manager, as thumbnails. This makes it easy to pick the one you want to include on a page. Other files will be grouped based on file type.
Password Protection has had a change of philosophy. You already could protect all pages on your site using one password. Now, you can do it in one click.
SEO gets better with Sitemap
Another area of change is SEO. We’ve added sitemap generation. Sitemaps are to inform search engine bots about the hierarchy of your website and how each page is connected to the others.…
Here’s announcing another update to Zoho Sites; Password-Protected Pages. You can now restrict access to pages on your website using passwords. This lets you share relevant content alone, with a closed group of people.
There are two types of passwords to use based on the instance:
- Site Password
- Page Password
Site Password is ideal when you want to share multiple pages with a group of people. One password for all the pages, so you share only one password with everyone.
On the other hand, Page Password lets you set separate passwords for each page. With each page having its own password, there is no possibility of accessing such pages with one common password. Read our help section on how to protect your webpages.
Linking External Pages:
Another feature that accompanies password protection, is linking your pages to external links.…
We have made minor changes to how you select a domain for your website. We believe this will streamline the process, and make it easy for you to choose between options. And of course, it is yet another reason for you to pick our PRO Plan. PRO users can now register their custom domain with us. When a domain is registered with us, all the mapping and configuration is automatically taken care of. The domain is ready to be used soon after registration.
When you attempt to publish your website for the very first time, you’ll be prompted to choose a unique domain name. Choose from the three options as in the image below.
This is ideal for beginners to get started with. You can learn the ropes of website building with a subdomain.

This being the first feature update since the release of Zoho Sites, we tried to introduce something for everyone who wants to set up a free website. The most important feature is payment buttons from PayPal and Google to enable monetary transactions. Others include Duplicate pages, Sitemap and RSS feed.
Paypal and Google Checkout
Paypal and Google Checkout buttons are the first step of the e-commerce journey. Accepting payments and donations is now possible in Zoho Sites. Buttons are of three types – Add to Cart, Buy Now and Donate. We believe this will benefit all the non-profit organizations and websites specifically set up to receive donations for causes. Sellers can also find comfort in processing payments from within their website.
If you have been using our free website builder you know now how easy it is to build a website.…
