Puerto Rico is the location of this case. more details 00:01 | May 1, 2012 | #1 I just signed up for a Smugmug (SM) account. I’m still in the trial phase, but I’m going to upgrade to a Pro account so that I can sell prints. I’ve also bought three domains. How do I make my SM site open to tourists by typing www.myname.com? If it matters, the domains were purchased from Godaddy. Thank you so much! LIKES 0flickrLIKES 0flickrLIKES 0flickrLIKES 0flickrLI

By linking your SmugMug Website to a domain name you register with us, you can give it a more professional appearance. Visitors will access your personalized images and galleries by typing your exclusive domain name instead of entering your SmugMug URL.

Smugmug – customizing part1

The domain name is the website’s URL or address, such as www.yourwebsite.co.uk. People can view the website online by entering the URL or web address (www.yourwebsite.co.uk) into the search bar on a tab.
If you have a Power, Portfolio, or Pro account, you can add your own custom domain name to your SmugMug website. This will result in a web address that does not have the smugmug.com suffix. It’s entirely up to you whose domain name you want to use (website address). Simply make the web address readable and try to adapt or be important to the content of your website. If you photograph pets and your company name is Joe Bloggs Pet Photography, a website address like www.fluffytoesphotos.co.uk will be inappropriate. If it’s open, something like www.joebloggs.uk or www.joebloggspetphotography.co.uk will be much better. You don’t have to use.co.uk at the end of your web address; instead, see what’s available with.com.uk. If you’re in the UK, adding co.uk,.uk, or.com to the end of your domain name is probably a smart idea.
Pointing google domains to heroku/openshift/etc. (cname
I clarified why I chose to point my domain to a blog and placed my SmugMug gallery on a subdomain in a previous post: it should give my domain more ‘authority,’ as well as potentially better indexing and search ranking for my photos. I had little to lose with a domain authority score of 3 and very little indexing.
Changing a domain’s target involves changing its DNS zone entries. My domain was purchased from GoDaddy, and while I didn’t feel obligated to transfer the registration, I did want to transfer DNS control to SiteGround, where I would have better resources and help. To do so, I updated my domain’s nameserver entries to point to SiteGround’s servers.
I added a “Gallery” menu item to the blog with a link pointing to my subdomain’s URL, and a “Blog” item to my SmugMug gallery’s menu with a link pointing back to my main domain, once I had my SmugMug gallery on a subdomain.
I eventually figured it out. My domain had been set up as a “URL” property in GSC, and my attempts to do the same for the subdomain failed. However, GSC has a new feature called a “domain property” that automatically includes subdomains when you create one for your main domain. That worked, and I was able to confirm that GSC’s “URL inspection” tool recognized the subdomain as a part of my land.
