Can I use my own domain name?
Yes, you can use your own domain name with your UGAL website.
When you create a website with UGAL, it becomes immediately accessible to your visitors at http://yourname.ugal.com.
You can use your own domain name as well. The process is fairly simple:
- Register a domain name (let's say yourname.com).
- Update the DNS (Domain Name Server) records for your domain and create an alias for www.yourname.com that points to websites.ugal.net.
- Go to your website's dashboard, click "website settings" and add www.yourname.com to the list of domain names you want to use for your website.
- Wait a few hours for the DNS records to propagate, and your website becomes available at http://www.yourname.com
