Your domain is your site's address. For example, our domain is Jimdo.com. People will enter your domain in their web browser's address bar to access your site.
A domain is not a website. One website can have multiple domains pointing to it, with one domain acting as the Primary Domain.
Domains can only be used with JimdoPro and JimdoBusiness subscriptions. If you want to use a custom domain with your JimdoFree site, you will first need to Upgrade.
Choosing your domain name is a difficult decision. Learn more about how to select the perfect domain name for your website.
Protect your domain by avoiding domain scams. The Domain Registry of America attempts to lure people into paying outrageous fees to host domains that are already properly registered. You can read more about these scams on our blog.
Choosing the right domain name is also an important part of SEO (search engine optimization). You should choose a short domain that is easy to spell, easy to say, and contains some keywords that are relevant to the content of your site. Often it will simply be the name of your business .com, .net, or .org.
Every time you sign up for a Jimdo website, you will be asked to choose a domain. If you want to register a domain through Jimdo, you will choose the domain at this time and register the domain the first time you log in to your site.
If you purchased a domain through a different domain registrar and would like to use it with your Jimdo site, you have two options:
- Connect the domain with Jimdo and leave it with the current registrar.
- Transfer the domain to Jimdo, which will make Jimdo the domain's new registrar. A domain registered with Jimdo will automatically renew when you renew your Jimdo subscription.
We'll help you through the process of connecting or transferring your domain to Jimdo. Simply contact our Support Team for help.
You can access the Domain Settings for domains you've registered with Jimdo and domains you've connected to your Jimdo site by clicking Settings > Email and Domain Management > Domains.
