Chapter: Days 29-32: Static Sites
Lecture: Custom domains on Netlify
0:00 Now last but not least, the last thing I want to show you is our URL. Look at that, romantic bends, hopefully
0:08 you've got something slightly better than that. It's actually not fantastic, is it? You probably don't want to be sharing that with people
0:15 saying hey, this is my blog, or this is my website. So what I'd encourage you to do just for simplicity's sake, and do not think
0:23 we are affiliated with Netlify in any way 'cause we're not, it's just for simplicity's sake. On your overview tab for your site, for your page
0:34 you can see that our site is deployed. Okay? But, we haven't set up a custom domain. If you click on that you can actually bring your own domain.
0:45 So you can bring a domain name that you already own or buy a new one. So when you buy the domain with them
0:52 they automatically configure your DNS settings and provision a wildcard certificate for your domain. So they do a lot of the work for you.
1:01 If you really want to make this a real, proper website with a proper URL, follow these steps, and that's it.
1:09 I added this video in purely because I'm sure a few of you will probably wonder how you get your current domain or how you find a domain.
1:18 If you've probably created a nice little website for yourself who knows how much a domain might cost? It might cost you a couple of bucks
1:25 right, and you might want to show this off. So this is where you do it. Go through those steps and follow the prompts
1:31 and you'll be able to set up your own domain and have a nice little website running. That's it.
