Adding Custom Domain

Setting a catchy address is the first step to getting customers to your online store! TackThis offers you the option of customising your shop URL via the Launch Options.

Besides offering a free Tackthis-hosted domain, the shop URL can also be pointed to the custom domain that you have registered. A domain name is the address or URL people use to locate your online store.

The creation of a new domain refers to the procurement of the exclusive right to your chosen root domain, and also the exclusive use of any customisable subdomains.
