How do I use my own domain with a Fotomerchant account?

So you can point your own existing domain to your Fotomerchant account.. or you can choose to purchase a new domain within your Fotomerchant account provided you're subscribed to a plan that includes "BYO Domain" as a plan feature.

If you already have a domain ( registered with your own registrar then you can point that domain to your new Fotomerchant site by working your way through this Knowledge Base tutorial

Important: There's no need to cancel your current domain hosting account, nor should you arrange to have your domain released from your current domain registrar. Doing this can cause delays in resolving your domain setup and can also break your email service
