A site is a web property you want to test. The term also applies to static websites with different domain names or subdomains, such as “www.yourcompany.com” and “blog.yourcompany.com.” Every site has a URL for each environment.

Adding a Site

  1. On the Sites and Environments page, click the New Web Site link.
  2. Key in the site name.
  3. Key in the default URL.
  4. Click the Create button.

Every site you create displays a separate entry for each environment and defaults to the URL you provided.

Changing the Site URL for an Environment

  1. On the Sites and Environments page, click the Edit icon (pencil) next to the site.
  2. Key in the new URL.
  3. To save your changes, click Done.

Setting a Default Site

  1. Click the Edit icon (pencil) next to the site.
  2. Click the Make Default link.

This site is now the default when creating new tests.
