Unique permalinks for every version of your site on Netlify

Throughout December we'll be highlighting a different Netlify feature each day. It might just be the thing you need to unlock those creative juices, and dust off that domain you registered but never deployed! Keep an eye on the blog and on Twitter for each feature!

Hello permalinks!

Every time you deploy an update to your site on Netlify you'll get a unique URL for that deployment which will always take you to that specific iteration of your site. This is, of course, in addition to the version of the site being served to your visitors on your production URL being updated too.

The permalink to a version of the site, shown as the date and time of the deploy

These permalinks make it incredibly easy for you to keep track of your historic versions and track how things evolve on your site over time. These deploy persist for you to be able to address. Indispensable for QA teams!

This can also be very useful when working on project with clients with whom you might want to share a specific version of the site for review while the development team keeps on building and shipping updates.

Find the permalinks for every deployed version of your site by visiting the Deploys page in the Netlify Admin app. You'll find that the date and time of each successful build is a link to that exact instance.

Known versions on explicit URLs FTW!
