Purchase a custom domain name for your site

Last Update: December 17, 2023

Owning your own domain is a must-have for anyone looking to build a successful online presence. It gives your site an easier-to-remember address allowing potential visitors to quickly find you. Whether you’re starting a business, creating a personal website, or running a blog, one of your first tasks should be to purchase a unique address that people can use to find you online.

Note: While we recommended that you purchase your domain name for your Elementor Hosting website through Elementor, we also support domain names you may have purchased through other providers. For more information, see Add a Custom Domain Name for your Elementor Hosted Website.

Purchase and connect your domain name

There are two ways to purchase and connect your domain name:

  • From your site’s website management screen
  • From the Brand and Business area of your My Elementor dashboard
