How to buy your domain with your Orson subscription

Estimated time: 5 minutes

What you need: your login and password

Your site is ready to be launched and you want to use your own domain.

The domain is the web address (URL) of your site: all pages of your site are attached to it like this  https://www.mydomain.com/number/page-title

There are two options:

  • Either you buy a domain through a registrar such as OVH, Gandi, or GoDaddy (for instance).
  • Or you subscribe to Orson's unlimited offer: it includes your own custom domain! We'll register it for you, but you have full ownership of it. You can chose between a domain ending by .com, .net, .org, .co, .fr, .be and .es

We work with the registrar OpenSRS, which guarantees optimum performance for your website.

1) Log in to your backoffice on Orson.io

  • Click on "Settings" 
  • Click on "Register your domain"
