Custom Domain Setup

Since your site will be created and located on our hosting network, you have some options when it comes to naming your site. But first, you must place your site on our network and choose one a network name as your site address (URL).

After your site is set up, you have the option to use your own domain name as your default site address (URL).

For example, if you have a domain name called www.yoursite.com, we can map that domain to your network site address.

In this way, you site will be accessed using your domain (www.yoursite.com), not the default network site address. This allows your default network URL to be masked. This means that the only web address your site visitors see is the mapped URL (your domain). Your sites looks exactly like a stand-alone site!
