Register a domain with Sitejet

A domain name is the web address (URL) where visitors can find your website. In order for your Sitejet website to be accessible online, you must assign a domain to it. The advantages of having a user-friendly custom domain, and how you can register and use your own domain with Sitejet, are explained in this article.

Basic knowledge

Custom domains give your website a professional look and feel, strengthen your brand and make it easier for visitors to find you online. The same goes for your customers, so we recommend that you always use a custom domain. Managing, transferring, and connecting domains is done in the "domain manager" of the respective website. 
Before we look at the features and possibilities themselves, we make sure that we are talking about the same terms: 
  • "Hosting" means the space provided on servers to make a website available on the Internet
  • "Domain" is the "name" of the website that is entered in the address bar of the browser to access the website. The domain always refers to the homepage of the website, while each individual subpage has its own URL (Uniform Resource Locator)
  • "Top Level Domain" stands for the short final part of the domain, for example, ".com" is the Top Level Domain for "www.your-website.com" 

Sitejet offers hosting for websites, and the ability to purchase and manage associated domains.

Register domains with Sitejet

To register a domain through Sitejet you will need to access the Domain Manager for the respective website. You can find different ways to access the Domain Manager here.
Once you opened the domain manager click on "+ Domain" in the right corner, enter your desired domain, and click "Search". If the domain is still available you can click "Register domain". 

You will now see a form to check the information that will be used for the domain handle (domain owner information). It will automatically use the information that was entered as customer data for the website but can be manually changed if needed. 

Once you click "Register now liable to costs" the domain will be purchased and added to your account. It is up to you whether you pass on the costs directly to your customer or charge the price to your customer within the project. Please note that the domain subscription with Sitejet will automatically renew after a year to ensure continuous ownership of the domain and availability of the website. All information about the renewal date and the upcoming costs for the domain will also be visible in the domain manager.

If a domain is already registered it is not possible to register the domain via Sitejet. If either you or your customer is already the owner of the domain you can connect that domain with your Sitejet website by using an A-Record or by transferring the domain to Sitejet.

Cancel a Sitejet domain

If you want to cancel a domain with us, please send an email to  help@sitejet.io, and if you want to transfer the domain to another provider via an auth code (also known as an authorization code, EPP code, or transfer key) before that you can find a step-by-step-instruction for that here.


Customize advanced DNS settings

DNS settings manage forwarding to other servers, mail servers, or other IP addresses. You can manage the DNS settings in the Domain Manager. See the section on " Registering Sitejet Domains" for instructions on opening the Domain Manager. In the Domain Manager, click on "Actions"  and select "DNS" to go to the DNS settings for a domain registered via Sitejet.

You will find fields for the typically used DNS record attributes. If you want to use more advanced DNS records like SRV please follow these guidelines:

Name: "_*service*._*protocol*" (without ", *something* = placeholder) 

Value: "*weight* *port* *target/value/wert/etc.*" (without ", *something* = placeholder) 

Please replace for example *weight* with the actual "weight" value required for this specific DNS record. The same goes for the other placeholders. An example would be:

Service Protocol Port Weight Priority TTL  Name Type Target
_sip _tls 443 1 100 3600 @ SRV sipdir.online.lync.com

would turn into the following in Sitejet:

Name Priority Type TTL Value
_sip._tls 100 SRV 3600 1 443 sipdir.online.lync.com

TIP: Correct settings ensure that the website is always accessible. If you are unsure about these settings, our support team would be happy to help you.
