Please note: The custom domain feature is exclusively available to paying customers on Basic and higher subscriptions. If you're on a free plan, please follow these steps to upgrade your subscription first. 


What is a custom domain?


A custom domain is a customized URL for any website currently online on the Internet.


For example, the custom domain for UENI is http://ueni.com/.


Similarly, for Google, the custom domain is https://www.google.com/.


When you create a free account on the Starter plan with us, you get a default UENI domain. For example, if you create an account for a business called 'Alex Plants', the URL for that website would be https://alexplants.ueniweb.com/.


However, with a custom domain, the same business could have the following URL: https://alexplants.com/. The removal of the .ueniweb portion is what makes a custom domain stand out.



Why is this valuable?


Most businesses consider a custom domain as the first step towards creating a professional online presence for themselves. On this link, we have perfectly highlighted all of the benefits of having your own custom domain, including but not limited to:


  • Maintaining brand ownership
  • Being memorable with customers
  • Competing with other businesses
  • Developing credibility with businesses and customers alike
  • Boosting your SEO


A custom domain can be selected by entering the URL of your choice in the following tile in the Pro-Features tab of your UENI Hub:

What if I already own a custom domain?


If you already have your own custom domain, that's no problem. Upgrading to any one of our paid plans will allow you to connect an existing custom domain of yours at no additional cost whatsoever.


Additionally, you can select a custom domain with us along with connecting your own, meaning that you can have multiple custom domains pointing to your website with us.
