How do I change my free site to a paid domain w/out losing all of the work already accomplished? And is it possible to purchase 2 domain names for one site? For example...can I purchase and and have both addresses take you to the same place?

Hi Angie,

If your site is already published to a SynthaSite subdomain, you can easily purchase your own domain when you click on 'Update my Site'. The subdomain will automatically redirect to your new address ( This way, you won't lose the value of any links or visitors that only know your old location and they'll see your new domain.

Please click here for more information on this issue:

You can also buy your second domain by following the same process once you've bought the first domain. It will automatically redirect to the domain you purchased first.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
