[Master Article] [For Everyone] How To: Set Up Custom Domains

Follow

To brand your website you may want to point a custom domain at your Art Storefronts website. This will mask the .artstorefronts part of the site and simply show your custom domain. This is a good way of making sure your website looks professional and looks as though you built it without being on any specific platform.

 

 

 

Art Storefronts has several articles written regarding setting up your Custom Domain. While we do not have a guide for each registrar out there, when we come across a new one we try to write an article as soon as possible, so if you don’t see yours, feel free to check back periodically or submit a ticket.

 

 

 

If you have trouble following any of these steps you can e-mail cs@artstorefronts.com. One of our Technical Support Agents will reach out to assist you as soon as possible.

 

 

 

Please Note: Before you get started, please review which domain registrars we suggest using and the ones we suggest avoiding. This may save you considerable trouble when attempting to launch your website.
Registrars We Recommend Registrars We Do NOT Recommend
godaddy.com hostgator.com
networksolutions.com Wild West Domains
fatcow.com 1&1.com/ionos.com
mediatemple.net squarespace.com
namecheap.com justhost.com
pairdomains.com wix.com
bluehost.com  

 

 

 

Before you get started on your Domain, you may want to read a little more about what Art Storefronts is and what E-mail Hosting is, because Art Storefronts is not an e-mail host.

 

The included article will run through the differences and how to distinguish what ASF is and what an E-mail Host is.

As we mentioned previously, Art Storefronts doesn’t have an article for every registrar out there, so we do have a very basic article explaining how to connect your Custom Domain to your Art Storefronts site.

If you are having trouble setting up your custom domain, we can set it up for you 

Again, while we don’t have an article for every registrar we do have quite a few.

 

These articles will walk you through connecting your custom domains and making sure that they work.

Finally, after setting up your Domain you may find that you need to set up some 301 Redirects. The instances of this are rare, but we do provide information on completing this step if anyone needs it.
