How do I set my custom domain in my Big Cartel admin?

Filed in Domain

Please note that Aarcade custom domain and email services are only available with an Aarcade Domain & Email Plan.

Navigate to the Store > Settings section of your shop admin, scroll down to the Domains control section.

Big Cartel Custom Domain

Navigate to the Domains section of your Store > Settings admin page.

Enter your custom URL, provided by Aarcade, in the Custom domain field. In most cases you will be using your root domain in the format:

www.my-domain.com

NEVER enter your domain without any prefix:

my-domain.com (incorrect)

Even though the above will work, it may cause some issues with your content sharing and SEO meta code. For more information on the non-www version of your domain refer to Never use HTML Frames and Setting your non-www redirect.

ALWAYS add the www. at the start of your domain. Entered into your Big Cartel admin, this will appear as follows:

My Domain

Note that you must ALWAYS enter your custom domain in the format:

something.my-domain.com

For example, instead of www you may use a sub-domain of your domain:

shop.my-domain.com

Entered into your Big Cartel admin, this will appear as follows:

Shop Sub Domain

Click the Save button when you have finished editing your Custom domain setting.
