Custom Domain

By default, all sites are assigned URL.

You can add your own Custom Domain to your site. In this document, we'll explain how to add a custom domain to your site.


Adding a Domain

If you don't own a domain yet, you can purchase it at GoDaddy, Google Domains, Namecheap, and other domain registrars. Once you have a domain, follow the next steps:

Step 1: Select Your Site

On the dashboard, pick the site to which you want to assign your domain:

Select a project from the Typedream dashboard

Step 2: Go to Site Settings

Once you have selected the site, go to Site Settings from the sidebar.
