A domain is the web address that people go to view your published project. By default your guidelines will be published to live.standards.site, but you can also use domains that have been registered with third-party providers, such as Google or Godaddy.
In this guide you’ll find help on:
Things to keep in mind
- If you connect a custom domain to Standards it cannot be used anywhere else. You cannot ‘share’ a domain name with another website hosting service.
- A custom domain can only be used for a single project. For example, if you added acmebrandguidelines.com to your account and published a project to it, all traffic going to the custom domain would view the project. You cannot publish multiple projects to the same custom domain.
- Base domains (mybrand.com) and subdomains (identity.mybrand.com) are considered separate domains. Many Standards customers prefer to publish guidelines documents to subdomains so the base domain can continue to host the brand’s website.
What you’ll need
- A Professional Standards plan. Free plans cannot add custom domains or publish projects.
- Before continuing you should have already registered a domain with a third-party provider. We recommend Google Domains.
