Yes, you can! We'll go through the most common use cases.

Installing UserGuiding on different domains such as staging and production.

It's common in software development to have separate domains for the staging and production environment.
To install UserGuiding on such environments, you should have our Container Code embedded in their source code. Once it's done, you're ready to publish your UserGuiding content in these environments.

Installing UserGuiding on localhost

Some users prefer to develop and manage their development environment on localhost. If that's your case, you'll also be able to test and install UserGuiding in such settings.

To test how UserGuiding contents work by creating Guides and Hotspots, you need to open UserGuiding's Chrome Extension.

To do that, access your localhost URL from the Google Chrome browser and open our Chrome Extension to create your content.

Important: When you are in the panel and want to create a new Guide or a Hotspot, you will be asked to enter a page URL to start creating your content.

If you try opening a localhost URL, the automatic redirect won't work. So, instead, you should arrive at your localhost URL and open the extension via its icon.

Installing UserGuiding on an offline-accessible host

If you are developing and managing your web platform on offline mode, please note that UserGuiding does not cover that.
