Important Notes:

DB Configuration:

For WordPress Websites:

  • When you add your custom domain, we'll automatically update the website URLs for your database, ensuring that all internal links and references point to your new domain.

For Other Website Frameworks:

  • You will need to update website URLs manually within your framework's configuration.

DNS Setup

You must configure your Domain Name System (DNS) settings. This step connects your domain name to your website's hosting server.

Once you've completed these steps and configured your DNS, your website will be accessible using your chosen custom domain. There's no need to copy or move website files – everything will be seamlessly linked.
