The simplest way to self-publish.
Coda lets you turn any doc into a sleek, shareable website with a customizable URL and a user-friendly top nav. And because it’s a doc, you can easily edit and evolve your site whenever you feel like it. And hosting is free.

From resumes to family recipes to hundred-page thinkpieces to a game of tic-tac-toe, published docs can take any form you want. Create a toolkit of templates. Open-source your team docs so others can put it into practice. Or, if nothing else, take a page from the classic .

We’ll help your doc get discovered.
Find your audience. If you turn on search engine discoverability, we’ll index every page of your doc and use your subtitle as meta-data. We’ll also include your doc on your maker profile and in our Doc Gallery. If your doc gets a lot of views and likes, we’ll feature it on the homepage as a trending doc and include it in our monthly Docket to extend its reach even further.
