If you were on the fence about grabbing your own URL for your site, it’s dead simple to get one now.
Custom URLs in Three Steps
Does it get any easier than this?
1. Search for an available domain.
2. Purchase it from Go Daddy.
3. Plug it in to your SmugMug Control Panel. You’re done!
Already With GoDaddy but New to Smug?
Just point your CNAME ‘www’ to domains.smugmug.com and your A record ‘@’ to 188.8.131.52 .
Transfer From a Different Registrar
If this sounds great but you already have a domain with another company, you can transfer it to Go Daddy.
Just go here and click on the “login to Go Daddy” link. Look for the “Transfer” option under the black “Domain Names” drop-down at top left. They’ll walk you through the rest.
Of course if you’re ever stuck, confused or just plain have a question, shoot our Heroes an email. We’ll getcha hooked up in no time.
