Link a Website or Domain to an SSP Application

Your website is linked to an SSP application when touch points are defined on the Web Site Setup page. After linking the website to an SSP application a URL is generated that points to assets in the SSP application for each supported touch point. You can use all the touch points supported by an SSP application, or only some of them.

You can also link a domain to an SSP application. In this way, your website customization is associated with a specific domain. For more information, see Link a Domain to an SSP Application.

Note

Touch points configured for a domain override the touch points configured for the related web site. However, if you are linking a domain to an SSP application, you must also define touch points on the web site record; domain-only touch point configuration is not supported.


To link your site to an SSP application:

  1. Go to Customization > Scripting > SSP Applications.

  2. On the list page, click Edit next to the SSP application you want to use on your website.

  3. Verify that some Supported Touch Points are selected. For more information, see Select Supported Touch Points.

  4. Click the arrow in the Save button. Choose Save & Link to Site.

  5. Select a site on the Link Site To SSP Application page.

    Note

    You can only link an SSP application to a website that has the same hosting root as the SSP application. For example, if you created an SSP application in the Staging Hosting Files folder, then you cannot link that SSP application to a website in the Live hosting root.


  6. Click Save.

The touch points selected on the SSP Application record are listed on the Touch Points subtab of the Web Site Setup page, indicating the SSP application is live on the website. Note that you must complete additional setup tasks when installing a reference implementation. For more information, see Core SuiteCommerce Advanced Developer Tools.

Important

NetSuite recommends that you first try linking your website to an SSP application in a sandbox account or another test site. If you do not have a test site, you can set up a local test site by modifying the hosts file on your computer. For more information, see Editing the Hosts File.


Link a Domain to an SSP Application

You can link a domain to supported touch points to create a unique web store experience for that domain. For example, you may want a certain look and feel for an entry point to your site using a certain domain.

To link a domain to an SSP application:

  1. Follow Steps 1 – 4 in Link a Website or Domain to an SSP Application.

  2. Click Save and Link to Domain.

  3. Select a domain on the Link Domain To SSP Application page.

    Note

    You can only select a domain that is pointing to the same hosting root as the SSP application. For example, you cannot deploy an SSP application created in the Staging Hosting files folder to a domain pointing to the Live Hosting Files folder.


  4. Click Save.

Alternatively, you can click the Link to Domain button when the SSP application record is in view mode. To verify the domain is linked to the SSP application, visit the Domains subtab on the Web Site Setup page to confirm that you see the same supported touch points that exist on the SSP application.
