This article is for administrators of the new Google Sites (Publish button at the top right). Get administrator help for classic Google Sites.
Because the new Sites is a Google Drive service, the Drive sharing settings also determine how people can share and publish their sites.
How can I start using Sites?
You can turn off access to Sites, or turn off people’s ability to create sites.
Note: The new Sites is turned on by default, so no action is required unless you turned it off, and want to turn it back on.
