Register.com Domains

This guide walks you through the process of hooking up your Register.com domain to your Strikingly site.

You can send this tutorial to your registrar if you need help or if you'd like us to connect your domain for you, send us the info here!

Step 1. Inside the Strikingly editor, go to Settings -> Domains and specify the domain you'd like to use for your site, such as "www.yourdomain.com". Then click "Update."

9. Done! Please allow several hours for these settings to take effect. Your domain will now be pointing to the Strikingly servers. Be sure to clear your browser cache before you check to see if the domain is working.

 

If your site doesn't go up after a few hours, contact support@strikingly.com or chat with us and include a screenshot of your domain settings so we can help!
