Also known as a ‘Domain Name’ is a website address that people will type in to visit your website. The domain names are what appear in the address bar of your web browser and will be linked to a specific address.
Having your own domain is great to set your brand apart and make it easier for people to find you online!
For example - ‘www.tradifyhq.com’ would be the domain name for Tradify’s homepage.

Getting your own domain

To get your own Domain, you would need to register a domain name from a Domain Provider. When registering you would typically purchase a domain name on a subscription basis with a domain provider.

Domain providers are also known as ‘Domain Registrars’ or ‘Domain host’. Common ones would include ‘Google domain’, ‘GoDaddy’ and ‘Hover’.

Submitting your domain in Tradify
