English How-To Guide


So this is a basic how-to guide if you choose to use AmebaOwnd for running your website/personal blog since the instructions are actually in Japanese and there’s no English guide. 

This will be updated over the coming weeks to include all aspects of operation. If you have any questions or need something else translated from Japanese feel free to message me.

AmebaOwnd is actually a really good platform to use depending on what you’re looking for. AmebaOwnd actually offers users a stable, quick platform to run a website or blog without having to perform the usual upkeep or worry about optimization, plugin conflicts, or security, like you would when managing say a Wordpress blog. 

You can update posts, pages and make other changes to your live website from the app, the hosting is free, and you can have your own custom domain as well.

 That being said the trade off with that is that there are limitations of what changes you can make and exactly how much you can customize your website if you choose AmebaOwnd. I discuss those limitations and benefits on a separate post here.
