Configure Your Domain with Tumblr

You can establish a more professional identity for your Tumblr blog by mapping it to one of the domains you registered through GoWebsite. Instead of entering your Tumblr URL to view your blog, visitors enter your domain name's URL. For example, visitors could go to www.coolexample.com instead of coolexample.tumblr.com.
