Although Jumpseller provides you a 'store.jumpseller.com' format domain, it is always better to use your own domain to look more professional and improve brand image.

You can either subscribe to our Plans and choose a domain name (.com, .org. or .net) and we will take care of all technical details without further costs, or you can use the following instructions to buy a domain name with a third party registrar and set this domain in Jumpseller.

Select your free domain


If you subscribe to our Plans, Jumpseller offers you a custom domain.

  1. Go to the Admin page on your Jumpseller store. Click on “Settings” from the sidebar and go to “Domains”. domain-settings

  2. Once you are on the domain page, click on the “Add a Domain” button on the top right corner. add-a-domain

  3. Now you need to check if your desired domain is “Available”. Often times, people want a certain domain name but they can not have it because it might already be owned by someone, or a company/person is using it. Hence, it is important to check the availability of domain names. domain-availabilty

  4. Once you find an available domain, click on “Next” and confirm the purchase. It is important to remember that although buying an available domain only takes a few minutes, the DNS propagation of this new domain across the internet can take from 30mins to 3 hours

  5. Lastly, in order to check your stores URL, click on “Store” link on the left menu bar. On the domain page, you can also see a color point in front of the domain names, now this color can be either green, yellow or red. Green means all the configuration is working correctly, yellow means the registration is pending or the process is not yet complete and red mean there is an error, either, DNS error or Nameservers error.

    Example: your domain is 'exampledomain.com', so after creating the 'www' alias (CNAME) you will forward everything to 'www.exampledomain.com'.
