What is a custom domain? #
A custom domain is a personalized URL for any website currently online on the Internet.
- For example, the custom domain for Esesito is https://esesito.com/.
- Similarly, for Google, the custom domain is https://www.google.com/.
When you create a lifetime account with us, you get a default Esesito domain. For example, if you create an account for a business called ‘Alex Plants’, the URL for that website would be alexplants·esesitoweb·com.
However, with a custom domain, the same business could have the following URL: alexplants·com. The removal of the .esesitoweb.com portion makes a custom domain stand out.
