When you sign up for ArtWeb you are automatically provided a yourname.artweb.com subdomain. However you can have your own yourname.co.uk or yourname.com personalized Top-level domain name instead (without the .artweb part).
* Please note: Top-level domains like yourname.com or yourname.co.uk are only available with a paid membership. If you are currently on the Free package you need to upgrade to the Basic or Pro package in order to have a Top-level domain. Click here to learn how to upgrade your Free package.
To have a Top-level domain with ArtWeb you need to first register the domain at a registrar of your choosing.
A registrar is a company that handles the registration of domains (e.g. 123-reg.co.uk or godaddy.com, but there are many others). Pricing can vary a bit per registrar. Usually a .co.uk or .com domain costs about £5 - £6 per year.
1) Please create an account at your prefered registrar and purchase a domain.
2) After purchasing it, you only need to do one more thing to have it work with your artweb website:
Please login to your registrar's control panel and point the nameservers of the domain to our nameservers. Our nameservers are:
If you don't know how to point the nameservers, please contact your registrar’s customer support. They know exactly how this is done in their system and they will be glad to assist you with this. Or search their FAQ page on how to change the nameservers.
3) IMPORTANT: Please let us know when the nameservers are pointed so we can finalize the process in our system. If we don’t finalize the process in our system your domain will not yet work with your ArtWeb website. Just send us a quick email with your domain to: email@example.com
