How to connect a custom domain

With Framer, you can instantly publish you site onto the web to a Framer subdomain or a third party custom domain.

Publish your project

To make your website accessible to everyone on the web, publish your project. Click the "Publish" button located at the top right to start hosting your website. After publishing, you can access the URL through the Publish sheet. Use the "Update" button to publish any changes you've made to your project on the website.

Note: If you unpublish your website, visitors will see the default 404 page that Framer offers. To customize the design of this page, create a page in your website called /404 .

Add a free custom domain

By default, your website will be hosted on a subdomain. This domain cannot be customised. You can add an additional customised domain to your website by choosing one of the following options:

  • Add a free Framer subdomain

  • Connect a third party domain you own

The first option is free, and Framer will set up the DNS settings automatically for you so your new domain will be live within seconds. Simply type in the substring in the input field, select between the,,, and options, and submit.

Add a third party domain

In order to publish your Framer website to a custom domain purchased through a web hosting service, you’ll need to add it to your project and setup DNS records for it in your domain provider. Purchase a domain through a web hosting service, such as Google Domains or GoDaddy. Once you have a custom domain, go to the Domains page in your Site Settings and select Connect a domain you own.

After inputing your domain, replace your DNS records with the Framer DNS records provided below in the web hosting service you have purchased your domain from. Domain registrars and hosting companies typically have their own custom panel for DNS management, but this can typically be done under Domain Settings > DNS Records. Listed below is a list of support articles for the most commonly used domain registrars:

Depending on your DNS provider the name is either the full domain, or an “@”. Similarly for the subdomain, it will be either the full domain or just “www”.

Also make sure to delete any other A and AAAA records if they are set for domain, because those will interfere with the A records set for Framer.

Configure a subdomain

Confirm changes

Please note that this process usually takes less than 48 hours. Once your domain has been connected, any user will be able to access your website through the connected domain.
