Registering New Domains

At some point, you may decide to purchase additional domains for your XSite.  Since we do not limit the number of domains you can attach to your XSite, you're welcome to purchase as many domains as you like and mix those in with domains you've already purchased.  To register a new domain name through your XSite:

 

Registering Your First Domain

  1. When you're ready to register your first domain, click the XSite button in the top toolbar.
  2. Click Manage Domains in the Content pane on the left.
  3. Click Manage and Purchase Domains on the right.
  4. In the screen that appears, type the domain name you wish to register and click Check Availability.  If the name you picked isn't available, you'll be prompted to enter a new domain name to try again.  If you've purchased a domain from a third party, you also have to option to add the existing domain to your XSite.

  5. Once you find a domain name that's available, click the Register this Domain button that appears in the bottom right to register your new domain and go to the Manage Your Domains screen.  From this screen, you have options for adding additional domains, upgrading your account, changing your primary domain, and transferring existing domains to your XSite for hosting.

 

Registering Additional Domains

  1. When you're ready to register another domain, click the XSite button in the top toolbar.
  2. Click Manage Domains in the Content pane on the left.
  3. Click the Add more domains button on the right.
  4. In order to create additional domain names for your XSite, you first need to purchase domain credits if you haven't already done so.  To purchase domain credits, click Purchase Domain Credits and adjust the number of credits you wish to purchase in the Qty. box.  Then, click Checkout, fill out your credit card information and click Charge Card.  Once your domain credit purchase completes, close the window to return to your XSite's domain registration tools.
  5. Type the domain names you wish to register into the provided boxes and then click Check Availability beside each to verify the domains are available for purchase.

  6. Once your XSite has verified availability, ensure the Available box beside each domain you wish to add is checked.
  7. When finished, click Register Selected Domains to register the domains and attach them to your XSite.

Once the registration is complete, your domain name may take 24 to 48 hours to become publicly available through the Internet as is typical with all new domain names.  Once that period has passed, your domain will direct customers to your XSite without any additional effort on your part.
