DOMAINS AND EMAIL
What’s a domain name?
A domain name is the address where your website can be located. For example this website uses www.qtwebbuilder.com. When choosing to create your site, you might want to create a domain that is unique to yourself or your product, but easy to type into an address bar.
Do I need a domain name to create a site?
Yes, each account with QT Web Builder requires a domain name. If you already have a domain name registered that you would like to use we can transfer your domain to our server. Otherwise your QT Web Builder account includes one free domain name registration.
Can I use a domain name I already own for my QT Web builder site?
Yes, but only if the domain isn’t currently associated with other files or permissions. Once you have signed up for an account, a member of our team will contact you to arrange for DNS transfer to our server, or to acquire your server’s FTP connection info, if you would like to continue hosting your own domain.
Does my domain name hosting come with an email address?
Yes, each domain name that is hosted with QT Web Builder comes with one free email. During the sign up process you will be asked for the prefix for your email (ie: email@example.com) and whether you would like it forwarded to an existing email account or whether you would like to use it for sending.
Can I create more than one email account?
Yes, each QT Web Builder plan comes with one free email account – each additional email address costs $5/month. To add an email address to your account contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
