Connect Custom Domain!

How do I connect a domain name to a Strikingly site? 

(JP: ドメインを接続する )


Connecting a domain is only available if you have a Limited or Pro account
If your domain isn't working, use this checklist!

If you don't have a domain name yet... 

You can register a new .com .net .org domain name on Strikingly! (You'll also get 3 email forwards included.)


If you use these registrars, you can set it up yourself!

GoDaddyNameCheap | Bluehost | 1&1 | Network SolutionscPanel or HostGator 

Wix | WordpressYahoo (Vizify) | Gandi | Register.com | 101 Domain | 123-reg

If you'd like us to connect your domain for you ($9usd), send us the info here!

Note: If you currently have a website and you want to keep some parts of it, your situation is more complex. You will have to move www.domain.com/something to something.domain.com -- for more information, please email go@strikingly.com. If you DON'T want to keep those parts, you can continue to connect your domain -- your /directories will redirect to your main domain automatically.


If you use a different registrar, ask your registrar to set it up for you.


Here are the instructions to send to your registrar. If you're an advanced user, you can try it yourself! 
Generic domain setup instructions



NOTE: If your domain registrar ONLY allows nameservers, but not URL forwarding or DNS settings/zone file:

Use Namecheap's free DNS Service (tutorial).


Connecting to a subdomain (about.mydomain.com, events.domain.com, etc)

Instead of linking your page to mydomain.com, you can also link it to mysubdomain.mydomain.com. If you bought your domain from Strikingly, see this tutorial. If you have a domain elsewhere, read the instructions here on how to connect your subdomain.


NOTE: We cannot set up directories such as yourdomain.com/directory, due to technical restrictions. We can only set up subdomains. Thank you!
