Register or transfer a domain name
Setting up a domain name you have already bought somewhere else.
You need to first visit your domain name registrar’s website.
Alternatively you can buy your domain name from us directly through our website. This can make this step easier if you are new to website design, or prefer our premium domain names to the others you find online. Our premium domains are catchy and unique. We offer a range of names that will help market your business to your online customers.
If you buy a domain name during the sign up process, please keep in mind that your domain name will not be visible on the internet straight away. Your domain name has to have propagated first. The process involved with setting up your site is called propagation and can take up to 48 hours. Until your domain has propagated, your website and email will not work.
Once your domain name has propagated you may use the FTP Hostname and Webpage URL to access and manage your website.
