In the WhatsHash, you can publish your store on your own domain.
To do this, first add the domain to your account, our system will install a free SSL certificate on it automatically.
What is a Custom Domain?
Many of the users want to make their store live on their own domain. It's good for branding and brandable domains will also increase the conversions.
WhatsHash gives default store domain like “yourdomain.whats.bz”. Custom domain feature allows you to use your own domain for your store which means you can make your store live on "yourdomain.com".
Follow the steps mentioned in this document to set up your custom domain.
Adding a custom domain to your WhatsHash Store:
First, you will have to buy a domain of your choice. You can buy your domain from any reputed domain registrar like Godaddy.com, Google Domains, Name.com, etc
