  • Telling the world about your website



ANSWER ID:238, 378

If you're ready to show your website to the world, you can use the Tell the world feature to promote it —you can post a message to your social networks, or send an email to your email contacts. 

You must register a domain name before you can use the Tell the world feature. Otherwise, you won't see the Tell the world link in the Things to do toolbar. Once you've registered your domain name, the Tell the world link will appear. Note that it will take 24 hours after it's registered for the link to appear. For more information, see Registering domain names (Australia | New Zealand).
