When you create your SlickPic website, we will assign you a standard domain name e.g. yourname.clickpic.site. However, if you would like to purchase a specific domain to match your brand, you can do that from the Website Manager.
Just go to the Domain Manager tab and click Buy Domain.
Click Buy at GoDaddy. GoDaddy is an external domain provider that we recommend.
When you click the button, you will be taken to the GoDaddy platform where you simply search for your domain and then follow the steps to purchase.
Important note: If you don’t already have a GoDaddy account, you will need to create one first.
You will then be sent a confirmation link to your email. Confirm your email address and then wait for your domain to connect.
If you fail to confirm your email address, the domain processing will be halted and you will see the following message in GoDaddy.
Once your purchase has been finalised and the domain is active, you’ll be automatically returned to SlickPic.
While you’re waiting for it to be assigned, you will see a ‘processing’ message next to your domain.
Once you have confirmed your email address, you may still need to wait for your site to become active.
Usually this happens within half an hour but can take up to 48 hours in some cases and you will receive a notification email once it’s ready.
Domain providers refer to this waiting period as “propagation time,” or the time it takes for changes to update throughout the Internet.
Once your domain is connected, you will see the ‘Active’ message when you check it in your settings.
