Purchase a Custom Domain

Use a custom domain (for example, www.yoursite.com) to make it easy for customers to find your site. If you do not already own a domain name, you need to purchase one to connect to your site. A custom domain puts your brand front and center, making your site more memorable to visitors and allowing you to set up additional security measures for your site.

Purchase a Domain with Google Domains

Through our integration with Google, you can opt to purchase a domain within the editor. When you purchase your domain this way, Google automatically configures the domain settings to work with your new responsive site. There is no need to configure CNAME records or 301 redirect setup for domains purchased through the Google/Duda integration.

To publish a site and purchase a domain with Google domains:

  1. In your editor, at the top right, click Publish.
  2. Click Change Site Address.
  3. Select Purchase a new domain for your site, and then click Google Domains.
  4. Purchase your domain from Google.

After completing the purchase process, your new domain will be automatically connected with your site.

Purchase a Domain with Hover

Through Duda's partnership with Hover, you can opt to purchase a domain from within the editor. When you purchase your domain this way, Hover automatically configures the domain settings to work with your new site. There is no need to configure CNAME records or 301 redirect setup for domains purchased Hover/Duda integration.

To publish a site and purchase a domain with Hover:

  1. In your editor, at the top right, click Publish.
  2. Click Change Site Address.
  3. Select Purchase a new domain for your site, and then click Hover.
  4. Purchase your domain from Hover.

After purchase, you will be prompted to connect your new domain with your site. Just click the button to complete set up.

Other Domain Registrars

While we strongly recommend buying your domain from the editor, you can purchase your new domain name from any domain registrar (for example, GoDaddy.com).

When you purchase your domain from a different registrar, you need to follow additional steps to connect the domain to your website. For more information, see Go Live, Publish, and Set Up Your Domain or check out the domains section for specific instructions for your provider.

Note

A custom domain name is not required to view your site. You can publish your site using the default domain (for example, yoursite.multiscreensite.com).

When choosing a registrar, make sure the registrar you choose supports CNAME records and 301 redirects.

If you already own a domain, you can connect it to your site by following the instructions here.
