Concepts

Below lists some key concepts that will help in understanding how Instant Websites work

Site

A site is basically a website. It would normally be named using a DNS compatible name (e.g. www.glintech.com).

A space can have multiple sites configured. Each site, then has it's own Connection, Metadata and Look & Feel configuration associated to it. 

Connection

A connection is where your site gets published. Instant Websites currently has four types of connection:

  1. Download 
  2. File System
  3. AWS
  4. Git

Site Generation

Complete Generation

The first time a site is published, you'll need to do a complete generation. 

Incremental Generation

Some changes that don't affect menu items or trees of pages can do an incremental generation which is much faster than the complete generation.
