Setup up your own Domain Name
Configure your domain name with Jumpseller
What is a Domain Name
In simple words, a domain name is the address you type into a browser address bar to get to a Website. For example the Domain Name of Facebook is facebook.com. A domain name is exclusive for only one website, however each domain can have multiple subdomains, for example: business.facebook.com would be a subdomain of facebook.com.
Having your own domain name will help your store to build creditability, increase brand awareness, and search engine positioning.
How to add a domain to your Jumpseller Store
In your Jumpseller store you can start by adding a new domain by going to your Admin Panel: Settings > Domain. This feature will be available once you subscribe to any of our paid Plans. If you subscribed to the plans Plus, Pro or Premium you can request one and only one free Domain.
Add free domain included on plans Plus, Pro or Premium
If you select the option "Get Free Domain" just type your desired Domain, the system will create an internal request and will purchase your selected domain. This domain and it's settings might take from 3 to 24 hours to propagate throughout the Internet.
Add a domain you own
If you already have a domain you can also integrate it on your store.
Type the domain or subdomain you own and you will see two alternatives: Nameservers and DNS Records, these two alternatives have different recommended configurations.
Make sure you copy the previous configuration and save them in case you need to revert these changes. For example if by accident you changed a record that controls your emails.
- If you are not using an external Domain Hosing service or you don't want to use one, choose the Nameservers option and follow the recommended configuration in the website you bought the domain.
- If you are using an external Domain Hosting service with Web Hosting and/or Email Hosting use the DNS Records method. Contact your Hosting Provider and send them the recomended configuration to prevent service interruptions. This step is very important since different hosting providers have different configurations that might be affected if you make these changes.
