Adding the Google Maps API in SitePad

Introduction

Sometimes you may want to add Google Maps to your site. For technical reasons, although it is not necessary in all cases, Google recommends that you obtain the API keys to use the maps. An API key is a string of characters, such as a password, allowing you to access the Google Maps server to take advantage of the full computing power of their server.

This documentation will guide you on how to add Google Maps API keys. 

Note : The PlanetHoster Glossary contains explanations on multiple topics and can be consulted to clarify certain terms.
