Moving a domain to a new Webflow project is a relatively straightforward process. With just a few simple steps, you can seamlessly transition your domain to your new project. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process, ensuring that you have all the necessary information at your fingertips.
Step 1: Accessing Your Webflow Dashboard
To begin the process, log in to your Webflow account and navigate to your Dashboard. Once you’re in, select the project you want to move the domain to.
Step 2: Go to Project Settings
Within your chosen project, locate and click on the “Project Settings” tab. This will take you to a page where you can manage various settings for your project.
Step 3: Domain Settings
In the left-hand menu of the Project Settings page, find and click on “Hosting.” This section contains all the necessary tools for managing your domain and hosting settings.
Step 4: Add Custom Domain
Under “Hosting,” scroll down until you see “Custom Domains.” Here, click on the “Add Custom Domain” button.
If you have an existing custom domain associated with another project, make sure to remove it before proceeding with this step. Only one custom domain can be connected to a Webflow project at a time.
Step 5: Enter Your Domain
A modal window will pop up where you can enter your custom domain. Type in your desired domain name (e.g., www.yourdomain.com) and click on “Add Domain.”
- Note: You don’t need to include “www” in your domain name if you don’t want to. It’s entirely up to you.
- Also, make sure that your domain is properly configured and pointing to Webflow’s servers. You can refer to Webflow’s documentation for detailed instructions on how to set this up.
Step 6: Verify Ownership
Once you’ve added your custom domain, Webflow will ask you to verify your ownership. This helps ensure that only the rightful owner can manage the domain within their projects.
- To verify ownership, choose one of the available methods provided by Webflow (e., DNS verification or uploading a file to your server).
- Select the method that best suits you and follow the instructions provided by Webflow carefully.
Step 7: Activate Your Domain
After successfully verifying your ownership, return to the “Hosting” section in Project Settings. You should now see your custom domain listed under “Custom Domains.”
- To activate your domain, click on the toggle button next to your custom domain name.
- If everything is set up correctly, Webflow will display a green checkmark indicating that your domain is active and connected to your project.
You have successfully moved your domain to a new Webflow project. It may take some time for DNS changes to propagate across the internet, so don’t be alarmed if it doesn’t work immediately. In most cases, it should be up and running within 24-48 hours.
If you encounter any issues during the process or need further assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out to Webflow’s support team. They are always ready to help you with any domain-related concerns.
By following these simple steps, you can seamlessly transfer your domain to a new Webflow project. Enjoy the flexibility and convenience that comes with managing all your domains within a single platform!
