How do I connect my domain with my Website Builder?

To connect a domain to your Website Builder, the domain must be in the same Dynadot account as the Website Builder you want to connect to. If this is the case, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "My Websites" from the left-side menu bar.
  3. Click "Add New Website" button on the upper right of the page.
  4. Search for a domain or link an existing domain. If linking an existing domain, skip to step 5.
  5. Complete the new registration order, go back and choose "link an existing domain".
  6. Enter the domain name, choose free plan and click "Start Website". A free website builder plan will be created and you could click on "Edit Site" button next to it.
  7. Consider upgrading to the Pro plan for additional tools and features. Choose Pro plan and click Add to cart button to complete the upgrade order. (The price is based on the remaining days of your domain)
  8. Make sure you have "Update domain dns to use sitebuilder" checked
  9. Start editing your website builder.
If you prefer to start from the domain details page, follow the steps here:
  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Click on the domain name link you want to use.
  3. On the new page, find "Start Your free website".
  4. Click the "Edit Site" button for the free plan or click "upgrade" to submit the upgrade order.
  5. Make sure you have "Update domain dns to use sitebuilder" checked.
  6. Complete the order and start editing your website builder.
NOTE: To ensure your website is accessible online, linking a domain to a website builder isn't enough. Please confirm that you've properly connected the domain to the website builder by updating the domain DNS to use website builder.
NOTE: Once your domain is linked, it cannot be unlinked. However, you can disconnect the domain from the website builder by setting it to another hosting service.

Should you wish to connect a website builder to a domain from another registrar, you'll need to transfer the domain to your Dynadot account.

Should you wish to connect a website builder to a domain from another Dynadot account, you'll need to initiate a Change Ownership request to move the domain to the Dynadot account that creates the Website Builder.
