Yes, you can. Just purchase your domain name and then point it to our servers - the information is available on the publishing settings page under "Publishing Settings" section of SynthaSite under "Use a domain you already own". Happy publishing!

Hi Galaxion,

When you publish a site you have an option to publish to a free subdomain or to purchase a first level (dot com) domain.
Click on the yellow "Publish My Site" button. A dialog box will open up and you can either:
1) Select a free subdomain by filling in the first box and follow the prompts to publish your site
or
2) You can fill in the domain you would like to purchase in the second box. If this domain is available, click "next" and you will be taken through the process of registering your domain and purchasing it with either PayPal or a credit card. Once you purchase the domain we will take care of setting up everything for you and your site will be up and running in under 48 hours.

If you have a domain you have purchased elsewhere, please click here for a tutorial on how to set it up to point to your SynthaSite website: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/p...

Hi Galaxion,

If you wish to have a website address that ends in .com then you will need to pay to register the domain name. The simplest option is to buy that name from SynthaSite and we will take care of setting it up for you.

If you already own a domain name that you bought somewhere else (like from GoDaddy for instance) then you can point it to SynthaSite for free.

If you don't own a domain name and you don't want to buy one, then you can publish your site using a free subdomain name from SynthaSite. In this case your website address will look like this: http://yoursitename.synthasite.com/

Please let us know if this doesn't anwer your questions.

You should try this:
http://www.dot.tk/en/index.html?lang=en
Your site ends in .tk and it's free, but when you change the site, you will have to do that again...
