Use your own domain
Use your own domain for the mini website
Don't you have a website yet, or is yours outdated? We offer the "Mini Website" that you can use for free :-)
The Mini Website is created within a few minutes and functions as a channel where your customers can easily make online appointments. The site works on all (mobile devices).
If you want to use Salonized's mini website, you'll get your own domain name. This basically is [yoursalonname].salonized.com.
You can view it directly via the little fellow icon top right -> Promotion -> Mini Website.
Can you use your own registered domain name for the mini website?
Yes, you can link your own domain name to the mini website. What will be different?
For example, if I would use the Salonized mini website without my own domain name, my website url is ambers-schoonheidssalon.salonized.com. If I connect the mini website to my own domain name, my website url will be www.ambers-schoonheidssalon.nl.
Before you can connect your own domain to your mini website, you first need to register it of course. You can do this at eg http://www.transip.nl/ or http://www.sohosted.nl/.
Link your domain name
To link the domain name to Salonized you don't need a webhosting package, we all arrange this for you. A registration or e-mail package therefore often suffices.
After you registered your domain name, you must log in to the registration panel for some technical tasks. Because each provider is different, we try to describe it below in general. If you need help with this, we advise you to contact your own provider.
- Go to DNS management. Here you'll get a list of all variations on your domain name and the addresses of the servers to which this should be linked
- If a record called "www" already exists, you have to modify or delete it. If it is not listed then you must add a new record
- The type of record you need is called a "CNAME". Enter "www" in the "domain name" or "subdomain" field
- You can enter www.salonized.com as a server address
Changing the DNS can take a while. Often this is done within 30 minutes, but it can take up to 24 hours. Do you need help with connecting your own domain name? You can contact your hosting party or send us a message.
