General Site Settings
The "General" Site Settings screen is where you can set and adjust all the basic settings that affect your site (typically not design-related). In the "General" settings screen, you'll be able to set up your domain, change your email settings, the website SEO options, translate the site and more.
Here's a breakdown of all the different sections -
- Domain settings - This section includes your custom domain and the "branded" subdomain that is being used on the Podcastpage.io domain. When you're within the free trial period, you'll only be able to change your subdomain ( for example, my-cool-sub-domain.podcastpage.io ) but not the custom domain.
To change the custom domain, upgrade your plan and follow the instructions. Please refer to the following help page for a more detailed look at your Domain Settings.
- Email settings - When you're using the built-in contact form, or voice message feature, you'll get email notifications every time there's a new entry (either a recorded voice message or a text-based contact form entry). By default, those emails would land in the email address you've used to sign up to Podcastpage.
If you prefer to send those emails to another inbox, make sure to use it here instead of your default email address.
- Site meta / SEO settings - To make sure your website is fully optimized for SEO, we recommend that you add the site information, description and a default image to this section. This would help quite a bit in terms of improving your SEO score, and eventually getting your site ranked higher on search engines.
This section includes the default site title/tagline, meta description, social sharing images, site icons and more. You can even set a custom robots.txt file or an ads.txt file to support a higher degree of customization, but remember this is an advanced setting to use it wisely.

- Translations - translate your website into another language. There are several default texts we use on buttons, error messages, warnings, tooltips, and more. Here you can change all those default texts to your own language. Read more about translating your website here.
