Getting started with your Porkbun account
Congratulations on purchasing a brand new domain at Porkbun!
We compiled some handy articles to help you get started with our site.
- Looking for an easy way to start building a website? Porkbun has partnered with Weebly to bring you a powerful website builder with a free trial period. The site builder allows you to create powerful, professional sites with dynamic and easy-to-use drag-and-drop tools.
- Need WordPress instead? Our WordPress solution is second to none. Check out: How to set up Easy WordPress
- If you'd like a custom email address to go along with your new domain, we offer a three-month free trial of our email hosting service. We also offer up to 10 forwarding addresses per domain, free of charge.
- If you've decided to host with one of the many popular site builders, such as Squarespace or Github Pages, our Quick Connect option will help you connect your website to your domain in no time flat.
- If you're using a hosting provider not covered by Quick Connect, you can still connect using A records, or nameservers. Contact your web host for the records they require and follow our guides on how to set them up:
- Finally, if you just need to forward your domain to another website, our URL forwarder has you covered. This is a handy solution if you need to redirect your domain in a pinch.
See our full guide, How to use the site builder, for more info.
Check out our guide, Hosted email vs. email forwarding, to decide which option is right for you.
