Well, this is pretty tricky. If Thimble represents web page making 101, then what you're asking is kind of a graduate level course. The short answer is, find a reputable domain hosting service that provides custom DNS, register a domain name, and then configure DNS to point a CNAME at your hosted page.

If that was confusing, I'm super sorry. You should ask on our mailing list, we're hoping some webmakers like yourself get their webmaking PHd's and will be able to help each other with this sort of advanced study question. Seriously though, +1 to you for even thinking about this stuff.

Thimble Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question that isn't answered here, join our [mailing list](http://groups.google.com/group/mozwebpagemaker), or find us on irc at irc.mozilla.org #webpagemaker

Who can see the pages that I've published?

Anyone! The pages are public for the world to see. That said, they have controls in place that will make them not indexed by search engines.

Is there a version of Thimble in my language?

Not yet, but soon. Join our [mailing list](http://groups.google.com/group/mozwebpagemaker) if you're interested in contributing translations of Thimble in your local language.

How do I submit my page into the Gallery?

Good question

How do I unpublish or delete my published page?

Write an email to thimbleundo@mozilla.org and we'll remove your page as soon as we can.

How do I upload images/videos?

Thimble doesn't support uploading images or video, but it does allow you to link to hosted images and video on popular services like Flickr, Vimeo or Youtube.

Help! I didn't save my page's URL. How do I get it back?

Good question

Why does my Javascript break when I share a page?

For security reasons, Thimble removes any Javascript from the published page. In future versions of Thimble, we'll provide Javascript hosting as an option. Join our [mailing list](http://groups.google.com/group/mozwebpagemaker) for more information, or to encourage us to work super hard on Javascript inclusion.

I'm a developer who has my own HTML editor. How can I incorporate your awesome "spell check" hints into my own editor?

Good question

How do I get a domain name to point to my Webpage Maker page?

Well, this is pretty tricky. If Thimble represents web page making 101, then what you're asking is kind of a graduate level course. The short answer is, find a reputable domain hosting service that provides custom DNS, register a domain name, and then configure DNS to point a CNAME at your hosted page.

If that was confusing, I'm super sorry. You should ask on our [mailing list](http://groups.google.com/group/mozwebpagemaker), we're hoping some webmakers like yourself get their webmaking PHd's and will be able to help each other with this sort of advanced study question. Seriously though, +1 to you for even thinking about this stuff.
