To register a domain through Sitejet, add a domain to the website you want to publish and click on Register.
Before you actually register the domain, make sure that the customer data is correct. This data will be transmitted to the domain registry and this is also the owner of the domain.
Sitejet Domain Pricing
If you need any other TLD please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the requested domain (including the TLD) in mind and we will send you a no-obligation proposal.
Point existing domains to Sitejet
If you already have a domain that you want to publish your website onto, you also need to add that domain to the list (see above). But instead of registering the domain, please set the following DNS settings for the existing domain. Please keep in mind that changes to the DNS can take up to 24 hours to take effect across the internet.
|@ (or blank)|| A
For redundancy you can also add records pointing to a redundant server:
|@ (or blank)|| A
To enable e-mail services through Sitejet, please also add the following DNS settings:
|TXT|| v=spf1 mx -all
- Missing A record for www. Please make sure that you set A records for both names, your-website.com and www.your-website.com
- Existing AAAA records. Remove these if you are still seeing the old website on some devices
- Do not put the full domain name (e.g. www.your-website.com) into the Name field. If your domain is your-website.com, you need to write @, www or nothing into the Name field
Secure a website domain with a SSL certificate
Just mark the checkbox "SSL" on any domain to automatically obtain and install a SSL certificate, so the website will be served through a secure HTTPS connection.
Issuing a new certificate usually only takes a few minutes but can take up to 24 hours. Until successful certification, the website will still be served through a regular HTTP connection.
Tip: In order to make this process as streamlined as possible, please only check that checkbox for SSL encryption after making sure that the domain is working correctly.
Choosing your business plan and going live
So you've built a website with Sitejet, your customer reviewed it and is happy and now it's waiting to go online? Luckily that isn't difficult at all. Go to your Websites overview. Make sure your website is in the Publish status (learn more about each Status in this article). Now click on "Publish now" (underneath the website Name).
If this is your first time publishing a website or you are not yet a subscriber, you will get to choose your business plan before being able to proceed further.
If you are a within one of our Pricing Plans you will enter the domain manager.
Enter your domain and tick the boxes according to your needs. Keep in mind that once you entered a domain and the checkmark underneath "ACTIVE" is set the website will be hosted and live. This is not an issue with your first website since one hosting is included in every paid plan but additional websites will automatically cause additional charges - even though you might not have registered the actual domain yet.
You can "Register" a Domain or "Delete" it again. If you registered the Domain through Sitejet or transferred it over to Sitejet from another hoster you can also set specific DNS settings. We cover this topic in another article.
