About domain

A domain, or website address (URL), is how your customers find your store and products on the internet. It's what people will type into their address bar (ex. www.yourstorename.com) when visiting your online store.


Tips: 

You can purchase a domain name through EasyStore or from any third-party domain registrar.





EasyStore-hosted domain


When you signed up an EasyStore, we provide a complimentary EasyStore-hosted domain name & SSL certificate for you.

Tips: 

It's not necessary to have your own custom domain name, however, it's great in strengthening your brand and enhancing your brand profile on the Internet. 





Adding own domain to EasyStore


If you have purchased a domain name from a third-party domain registrar, you can connect your domain name with your EasyStore by pointing your A record to our IP address (52.74.233.82) & setting up your CNAME


CNAME stands for 'canonical name' and is a redirection to the zone file of the entered target domain. All entries (Nameserver, MX record, A record) therefore apply to this target domain.  A CNAME record lets you assign a domain or sub-domain to another address or hostname.

For example, testing123.com is your domain name. If you are worried about someone typing your domain with www, like www.testing123.com usually that would result in a page not found error. In order to combat this, you could set up a CNAME record on your domain for www.testing123.com to point to testing123.com so that even if someone typed www or without, they would still be redirected to the correct location (testing123.com) by the CNAME record.
