For easier deployments via the ZIP (or even the “Test deploy” method), consider setting up a Git repository on GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket or any others supported by Netlify. Then when you push changes to the repo, Netify will automatically build it for you!
If it’s your first time deploying to Netlify, you can just take your ZIP file and drag it onto the UI at Netlify to create your Netlify site, then configure any settings within Netlify. This will work best if you’ve chosen to export with relative links set, so that the site’s URLs will work wherever deployed.
Set this to the final domain your users will visit your site on. If you’re just getting started you can set it to your Netlify site’s URL, ie https://mystaticsite.netlify.com

You can also hit the Reset to default settings button to clear any settings you’ve saved for the plugin from your WordPress database.
