Already own a domain?
If you already own a domain name then you have two options:
1. Keep it where it is and point it at our servers
You can continue to use your domain registrars account to look after the domain. You will need to continue paying the annual renewal fee for the domain and will also need to configure the DNS settings to point at our servers but we can help with that.
- Instant setup if you can configure it yourself.
- Always have instant access to domain account.
- You need to pay and remember to renew it
- More complex to configure
If you would like to take this route you can get more information on configuring your domain in the article Configuring a custom domain.
2. Transfer it to us
By transferring a domain to us you can close your old domain account and let us worry about paying and renewing the domain. You also don't have to worry about any technical details apart from getting us the transfer code needed to take ownership on your behalf.
- You don't have to pay for it any more.
- You don't need to worry about renewing it
- Takes longer to setup (2-3 days to transfer)
- Less access to the domain
We'll never ever charge you to take back ownership of your domain and are happy to do this at any time. You alway retain ownership of the domain we simply manage it for you.
Simply send us a message if you would like us to take ownership of a domain on your behalf.
