How to Set up your Domain

After selecting a site plan, you will be prompted to select from one of three domain options:

  • Default Domain: This is a domain hosted by Duda. The URL will be a Duda subdomain with your custom naming.
Warning

Using the default domain is not a good option for your site's SEO.

  • Purchase a custom domain: You can purchase a domain from Google Domains or Hover. When you type your domain of choice into the field, a drop down appears with suggestions. This domain will already be set up to work.
Note

If you choose option 1 or 2 above, you are done. You only need to continue with the instructions below if you are using a domain you already own.

  • Use a domain you already own: You may use a domain you already purchased from your domain host. To do so, follow the steps in Setting up Your Domain in you Domain Host.
Tip

You can change your domain at any time after publishing your site. To do so, return to the Choose Your Website Domain screen by going to Site Settings > Site URL > Change site URL.

For more information, see Go Live, Publish, and Set Up Your Domain.
