Connect Your Domain to SmugMug

You can establish a more professional identity for your SmugMug Website by connecting it to a domain name you register through us. Instead of entering your SmugMug URL to view your Website, visitors can enter your unique domain name to view your customized photos and galleries.

  2. Next to Domains, click Manage.
  3. Select the domain name you want to use.

  6. Under the Settings tab next to Forwarding, click Manage.
  7. Click Add Fowarding and enter your domain in the following format: www.yourdomainname.com. (For example, if you own coolexample.com, you would enter: www.coolexample.com.) Select Forward Only under Forward Settings.
