If desired, you can have your XSite hosted on a domain you've purchased separately. Before getting started, you'll need to retrieve your account login info for the domain control panel. This is usually the login for your registrar (i.e. GoDaddy, Network Solutions, Register.com, etc) but if you got your domain from a previous website provider, you may need to contact them for this information.
It can take up to a few days for the rest of the web to recognize you've changed your domain settings. This is normal for any website and not under our control.
Additionally, pointing your domain to your XSite will not result in a la mode taking over your domain's management. You'll still be responsible for renewing it separately with the company from whom you purchased it.
Due to the differences in all of the various registrar's systems, our support technicians are not able to assist you with this process. If you have questions about where to enter the following information, please contact your registrar.
