Own Domain

Here you will learn how to setup your own domain name

If you want to use your own domain instead of the GAPVO subdomain, you have to do the following steps.

1.) Register a domain with a domain registrar
2.) Redirect your registered domain to your GAPVO subdomain
3.) Enter your registered domain in the domain field of your GAPVO website.

Register a domain with a domain registrar

Register your own domain with a domain registrar. For this you go, for example on GoDaddy.
If you already have a registered domain, you can skip this step.

Of course you can also use another domain registrar for your registration.

Redirect your registered domain to your GAPVO subdomain

Go to your GoDaddy account and open the domain manager. Click on the domain you want to redirect. Click on Manage DNS and then on Forwarding to ADD. Now choose Forward with masking. Fill in all fields and click save. That’s it.

Enter your registered domain in the domain field of your GAPVO website

In your GAPVO account, go to “Sites” and then select your website where you want to enter your own domain. Click on the “Edit” button on the website! 

 

Enter your domain in the domain field. Make sure you enter your domain without “http: //” or “https: //”.
