Create and Name Your New Site

If you just logged in, and you haven't created any site yet, you will be presented with a short prompt to do so.

Alternatively, you can always navigate to Sites in top menu and on the screen locate Create New Site button.

Create new Site, give it a name and URL

Site Name

A Site Name is an internal label. This name will appear on your dashboard and will reference your specific site across various panels.

We recommend using a friendly, descriptive name. For example:

  • Landing Page
  • Seasonal Microsite
  • Corporate Blog

Site URL

A URL is where your site resides. Wide Angle does treat this quite literally, and each subdomain is a separate site. The same applies to different top-level path.

It is best explained with an example

Site URL Visited URL Tracked
example.org example.org/blog ✔️
example.org example.org/index.php?p=123 ✔️
example.org misc.example.org
example.org/blog example.org/contact
misc.example.org example.org

The sites protocol (whether it is HTTP or HTTPS) is not relevant, meaning http://example.org and https://example.org are treated as the same URL.

Tracker Domain

In this section, you can choose how you will reference Wide Angle Analytics script when embedding it on your Internet property.

The tracker domain defines the base URL where the tracking script resides. You are welcome to use our tracking domain, that is stats.wideangle.co.

However, For reasons mentioned in the Custom Domain section, you might want to use your own. If you previously created a Custom Domain, it will be visible in the dropdown menu. Please note, that this will include inactive, unverified domains.

You can always change the domain later.

Next steps

If this is your first site, you will be prompted to choose a subscription plan. Starting plan gives you the ability to track traffic on one active site. We do not limit the number of inactive sites.

Once the site is created, it will remain INACTIVE until you are ready. This gives you a chance to verify your domain and integrate Wide Angle Analytics with your site.
