Custom Domain

One of the most important things to consider when launching a business is a domain name. Coming up with a catchy domain will not only build up or strengthen your branding but will also make it easier for people to find and remember your website. 

What is a Custom Domain?

Our Custom Domain feature allows you to connect your domain to Payhip. This allows all pages of your Payhip store to be shown under your own domain.

Where can I get a Custom Domain?

There are many Domain Name Registrars that you could purchase from out there on the market, but it's ultimately your decision which provider works best for your business. To help you get started, here are some of the popular Domain Name Registrars that Payhip sellers use:

Please note that it is not required to connect a domain to use Payhip.

How can I connect my existing domain to Payhip?

On the Domains page, click the " Connect Existing Domain" button to connect your domain to your Payhip store. 

A pop-up will appear asking you to log in to your DNS provider first as you are required to set up either an A record (for the root domain) or a CNAME record (for a subdomain). The step-by-step instructions for setting up your store with popular DNS providers are provided here

Does Payhip generate the SSL certificates for me?

Yes, Payhip automatically generates the SSL certificate for you when you connect your domain. The main function of SSL certificates is to allow a website to move from HTTP to HTTPS, making it more secure. Without SSL certificates, popular search engines such as Google will flag your website as “Not Secure” and your ranking online will be harmed as a result.
