How to build a website on Notion

Notion as a platform has amazing collaborative possibilities and lets all the teams within an organization come together to work on projects in a smooth and cohesive manner. However, one feature that not many people talk about is the website builder built into the platform.

Of course, there are a number of other ways to make Notion your next best friend, but in this post, we are going to learn how you can create a Notion website and about the best Notion integrations for your unique requirements.

Introduction

Notion is often touted as the app that has single-handedly replaced multiple productivity apps by integrating their functionalities into one app. The app can act as an all-in-one workplace for all your note-taking, task management, and project management needs.

Apart from doing everything I mentioned above, another useful and understated use of Notion is to create websites. Though a website created on Notion is not at par with a full-fledged website in terms of performance, it is a great choice when you need to get a web page live quickly.

Yet another way to get more from Notion is through workflow automation by implementing Notion integrations with other third-party applications using Appy Pie Connect.

How to build a website with Notion?

The process of creating a Notion website is really simple. When you start to build a website with Notion, you need not worry about coding or programming from scratch. The process is quite like setting up a personal page which doesn’t really require you to create any unique setup.

Once you have done that, all you need to do is click on the Share button at the top-right corner. Now you can use the toggle button to decide whether you want to share your page on the internet.

As soon as your page is live on the web, you will see the website link and a number of useful features that will help you improve the security of your page. Here are some of the options you will see:

  • Allow anyone to edit your page
  • Allow comments

How to change your Notion website URL?

The default URL for your Notion website might be less than satisfying for anyone, especially if you are a serious business owner. And frankly, you can’t really expect a brilliant URL from a free service. There are two ways to rectify this issue and get the desired URL:

  • Connect your own domain to your Notion website, or
  • Use a URL shortener service

In the second option the website URL is not going to change, but you will have a cleaner, convenient URL to share with clients or other stakeholders.
