How do I connect my domain to my hosting account?

Please keep in mind that your website will not appear until your domain name has been properly setup to point to our servers. You will need to transfer your DNS (Domain Name Server) to our servers using the information provided to you in your welcome email.

Once initiated, it may take anywhere from 24-72 hours for your domain name to be associated with your website. This process is called propagation. Until your domain has propagated, your website and email services will not function.  A temporary URL is provided to you in your welcome email, which may be used to view your website and upload files in the meantime.


Note: Benchmark Design does not currently sell domain names.  You will need to purchase a domain name from a domain name provider such as GoDaddy, 1&1 IONOS, or NetworkSolutions.  We recommend contacting them for assistance with DNS setup.  Any required information will be sent to you in your welcome email.
