If you already own a domain

If you want to buy a new domain
If you don't have a domain yet, please follow this guide to buy a new domain
. The new domain will be ready for Sitemagic Cloud out-of-the-box. Once your domain is ready, connect it
as described below.
If you want a free new domain
You can get a free domain useful for testing the domain services in Sitemagic Cloud. Read more about free domains here
Once you own a domain and has decided to use it with Sitemagic Cloud you should connect it immediately. If you want to move an existing domain to Sitemagic Cloud, be aware that this often requires the domain to be connected to Sitemagic Cloud first.
To connect your domain, all you need to do is log in
to Sitemagic CMS and navigate to Admin > Cloud Account
Click the Connect link. The Cloud Manager will ask you for your domain name. Enter the domain name (e.g. company.com) and press OK to proceed.
That's all. You will receive an e-mail once the domain is fully connected, which happens when the domain name is ready (purchase of new domain has been carried through or the existing domain has been moved to our services). It can take somewhere between a couple of minutes to hours or even days, so please be patient. Sitemagic Cloud tries to connect the domain 4 times every hour.
