A few users have asked us how they can purchase their own domain name to use for a site already published on a SynthaSite subdomain (yoursite.synthasite.com.)

We are working on an easier solution, but here's a process you can use in the meantime:

1) From the site manager, click the arrow next to "Update My Site" and choose "Publishing Settings."

2) Choose "Unpublish Your Site" and confirm when asked.

3) Choose "Publish Your Site" from the dialog box that's displayed

4) Select the second option and choose your domain name!

**IMPORTANT: By doing this, you will no longer have access to your old SynthaSite subdomain (yoursite.synthasite.com.) Visitors will only be able to access your site from the new domain name, and the old subdomain will not work. You'll have to update any links or references to your site to include the new domain name. If you prefer to wait, we'll release a solution that will redirect your old subdomain to your new custom domain; I don't have an estimated release date at this time but we'll let you know when it's live.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or issues!

Cheers,
Chris

As I mentioned on another post at http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite... , you can now upgrade to a custom domain at any time. We'll automatically redirect users that visit your old subdomain to your brand new custom domain!
