As soon as we've completed building your new site, you can choose to launch it at the domain of your choice.
Using your own domain name has a couple very important benefits:
- It's generally more memorable making it easier for customers to find you online
- It can result in better performance on search engines
- A good domain name can actually increase your conversion rate, as many customers view it as part of your brand, and determine how much they should trust your company based on your domain name.
If you don't already have a domain, we suggest using NameCheap.com to purchase one.
- Go to NameCheap.com
- Search for a domain
- Purchase it
Domains start at about $10 per year.
To launch your site, you'll be asked to update your name server (NS) records with the company that your registered your domain name with (ex. NameCheap, GoDaddy, register.com, misk.com etc.). After that it takes about 24 hours for the change to take effect.
And of course, if you need a hand with any of these steps, our support team is here to help.
