Editing Domain Settings
Your Helcim Account provides you with a fully-hosted ecommerce store, including a secure SSL certificate.
To edit the domain settings for your online store, click on
Online Store and
Online Store Configuration, then select
Domain Settings from the menu on the right-hand side of your screen.
To edit your Domain Settings, your online store will need to be active. You can check the settings of your store under the
Configuration tab of the menu. Under General settings, the first option is
Active, ensure the radio button is toggled to
On and configure your online store settings based on your business needs.
Once your online store is set to active, you can edit your Domain Name Settings. Once you've clicked on
Domain Settings from the menu, you can choose between three hosting modes including
Domain Name Hosting, and
Domain Name - Third-Party DNS.
The first hosting mode is
Default Subdomain, this is the domain that Helcim creates for you. The domain name will be displayed below for your reference.
Domain Name Hosting
If you have an existing domain that you would like to use, or if you have a custom domain name, simply select
Domain Name Hosting from the drop-down menu to enter your custom domain. Then, under the
Your Domain Name text box, enter the domain you want to use. Click
Save to apply your changes.

Is your domain registrar not one of the companies listed above? Simply give your chosen registrar a call and ask them how you can change your domain's nameservers to: ns1.helcimdns.com ns2.helcimdns.com
Do not enter https as part of your domain. You will need to wait at least 24 hours after completing these steps for the switch to be completed. That is the minimum amount of time it takes to switch DNS servers and get SSL certificates for your website.
