Setting Up a Custom Domain with Portfoliobox


Creating a memorable brand starts with having a custom domain. A custom domain strengthens your brand’s identity and enhances credibility with your audience. For Portfoliobox Pro and Pro Plus users, setting up a custom domain is straightforward, offering a seamless way to elevate your online presence. Here’s why you should consider it and how to get started.

The Benefits of a Custom Domain

  • Brand Identity & Professionalism: Having a domain that is specific to your brand is important because it helps to establish a professional image, which, in turn, helps to build trust with your audience. When customers or clients see that your website has a domain that is unique to your brand, they are more likely to view you as a legitimate and trustworthy business. This can lead to increased engagement, more conversions, and ultimately, greater success for your business. 
  • SEO Advantage: Custom domains can improve your website’s visibility on search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, and others. This is because search engines prefer websites that have a custom domain over those that use free subdomains. This means that your website is more likely to appear at the top of search engine results pages, which can attract more visitors to your website.
  • Marketing Flexibility: With your domain, you can create custom email addresses, further promoting your brand.
