Connecting your Bookmark domain to your website

Depending on where you go through the domain registration process you may have to take certain actions to connect the domain to your preferred website.

  1. If you purchased the domain from within the 'Domain' area of the website builder of the site you want to connect the domain to - the domain will automatically connect to the website and all you have to do is publish your website to see the changes reflected on the live site.

  2. If you purchased the domain from the Domain page of your profile you will need to go to your My Websites page and enter the website builder of the upgraded website that you want to connect the domain to. Then you will need to go into the 'Site' area in the sidebar, and then into the 'Domain' area. From that domain page in the builder select the custom domain visible on the page. From there just save and publish the website and you are all set!
