When you begin a trial website with us, we issue you with a temporary URL (web address). This is your short name. It looks like this:
You can use your short name to share your trial website with others to look at. Just give your short name to your friends and they’ll be able to view your website-in-progress and give you feedback. You may need to check your site is set online.
This also allows you to test out the mobile version of your site. Just type the short name into your mobile’s web browser and you’ll be able to see how it looks on a mobile.
Once you upgrade from your free trial, you’ll get a proper domain name (URL/website address) like this:
When you upgrade your website you will have the option to register a new domain name, transfer your domain to us or configure your domain to work with your new Rocketspark website. (Domain charges may apply)
Your site can then go live and will be indexed by Google. While you just have a short name, your website will not be indexed by Google. Learn what indexing is here.
