What is a domain?

A domain is where your website can be found online, e.g. Youtube's domain is www.youtube.com, or B12's domain is www.b12.io.

B12 websites have a default domain that ends in .b12sites.com, but it's best to have a custom domain, such as www.mybusinessname.com. Custom domains look professional, are memorable, and help build your brand identity.

Buy a custom domain:

Domains typically cost around $15-$50/year, depending on their value. (Premium domains may cost much more.)

  • You can buy a domain from a domain registrar, such as GoDaddy or Google domains.

  • Some domain registrars will encourage you to buy extra features, such as SSL certificates or website hosting. These might not be necessary, so feel free to double-check by emailing hello@b12.io.

  • Once you buy the domain, you can connect it to your B12 website. Check the bottom of this article for instructions for specific domain registrars.
