Can I host ScreenSteps on my own servers?

Updated on

There are two parts to ScreenSteps:

  • The authoring environment
  • The documentation you create

The authoring environment

The authoring environment is hosted on ScreenSteps' servers. There is no way to host the ScreenSteps authoring environment on your own servers.

The published content

If you would like to host ScreenSteps content on your own servers then you can use our API to extract content and publish it to your own servers. You would need the help of a developer to make that work with your particular environment.

Advantages of having ScreenSteps host your published content

There are definite advantages to hosting the documentation you create on the ScreenSteps application though since ScreenSteps takes care of a lot of things for you such as:

  • User authentication
  • Dynamic creation of table of contents
  • Search
  • Instant publishing of content

Using your own domain

Many companies choose to use a custom domain with their ScreenSteps content. This allows you to use your own domain name for your ScreenSteps site. If you would like to do that you can learn more here.
