Attaching Other Domain Names

If you already own one or more domain names that you want to use with your XSite, you can easily attach them to your XSite using the domain manager in your site — for free.  To attach a domain that you already own to your XSite:

  1. Click the XSite button at the top of the screen, click Manage Domains in the Content pane on the left, and then click Add New Domain.
  2. In the screen that appears, make sure Point existing domain is selected and type the domain name you wish to attach to your website.

  3. Click the link shown in the screenshot below and follow the instructions in the help document to make the necessary changes to your domain records with the company (registrar) where you purchased it.

  4. Once you've finished making the changes to your domain records, click Add Domain at the bottom of the screen.

Once you make the necessary changes to your domain, your XSite will take care of the rest.  Keep in mind that any changes you make to your domain settings may take between 24 and 48 hours to complete as those changes have to make their way across the entire Internet.  This "down time" cannot be avoided either through XSites OR any other website provider, so be sure to account for a website and email outage for any websites or email attached to that web address.
