During the YourVirtuoso signup procedure, you selected a unique web name for your studio. You were then assigned a web address (URL) of http://uniquewebname.yourvirtuoso.com
You can use this web address as is, for setting up and reviewing your website for example, but it is recommended that you find and purchase a custom domain name (URL) from one of the internet registrars like GoDaddy or Network Solutions.
When you have your system ready to "go live" under your custom domain name you will need to forward any customers who access your custom domain to your actual YourVirtuoso site. To do so, just follow these steps (GoDaddy is shown, similar steps would apply at other registrars):
Login to your Registrar's Website
Enter your username and password for the registrar (provided when you purchased your domain) and click Login
Manage your Domain
- Click on the Domains tab
- Select Domain Management
Select your domain for forwarding
- Click the checkbox next to your custom domain name to select it
- Click the "forward" tool
- Select "Forward Domain"
Enter the forwarding destination
- Type the address you were given by YourVirtuoso (uniquewebname.yourvirtuoso.com) in the box
- Click OK
Click OK and you are done!
It may take a while for the forwarding to be active, but within an hour or so you should be able to use your custom domain name to access your YourVirtuoso website.
