This article will introduce the Domain App where you can manage everything regarding your domain in one place. 

Overview

To access the domain settings, go to Dashboard and navigate over to Domains App. Here you can see Subbly-given sub domain which you're currently using, connect your own domain or buy one if you don't own it already.


Domain Settings

settings.PNGSSL via Subbly - Subbly grants you with a free SSL certificate. To get one, toggle the switch and reduce the risk by keeping sensitive data collected on your website safe. We do however recommend connecting your SSL via Cloudflare just so you can have access to your domain's DNS settings and you'll be able to edit them anytime. 

settings.PNGHTTP to HTTPS - This option forces your domain to automatically redirect to the HTTPS version. For instance, if someone visits http://example.com, he'll be automatically redirected to https://example.com (if you have SSL certificates properly installed on your domain).

settings.PNGwww - Ucraft gives you an option to remove www for your domain. A domain without the "www" is called a naked domain. While enabling this function will allow you to use both www and non-www canonical host name for your domain. That said, your site visitors will be able to browse your domain with or without the "www" prefix. This avoids duplicate content on Google and the possibility of split page rank. 📊

language.PNGAssign Language to Domain - This functionality allows to link a specific domain to a certain language attributed to your website. To setup different language options to your website, visit the Languages App from your Dashboard. 


Important considerations

  • Connecting multiple domains

You can surely add multiple domains to one site to help potential visitors find you better. Subbly lets you register as many domains as you need to expand your reach. Trust us, this is a great way to direct traffic to your site and give visitors multiple ways to find you.

  • Connecting and not transferring

Subbly allows you to connect your domain without transferring. The former one is also called domain mapping. Your current provider continues hosting your domain, but by adjusting a few DNS records, you can point the domain to Subbly IP addresses. 

  • Web hosting and not Domain hosting

Web hosting and domain hosting are two different services. At Subbly, we offer a free web hosting, but not domain hosting. As you already know, we partnered up with Google to guarantee you top-notch hosting. It’s needless to say that Google Cloud hosting is among the most reliable ones on the market so your website will be in good hands.
