One of the first decisions you’ll need to make is what name you want in your Merchant Shop address, commonly called a URL.
Figure 1: URL Highlighted in Blue (Above)
All NuggetWeb.com URL’s are similarly named, with nuggetweb.com at the end of the address such as:
NuggetWeb.com is the Domain Name. This saves you the cost of having to purchase your own .com domain name and maintain that name. If you would like your own domain name (for example: www.ginafudge.com), we can provide for this, but keep in mind an extra fee will be charged for the service, and a yearly cost is involved.
There are guidelines you should be concerned with when choosing your shop’s name:
- The name should be a short, but descriptive name for your shop. Try to think of something that describes your business, and easy to remember and type into a web browser.
For example, “jamiesshop.nuggetweb.com” would work very well, but “jamiescookiesandcraftsandjewelryandmakeup.nuggetweb.com” is hard for people to digest.
- The shop name is not case-sensitive, but it can only contain letters and numbers.
- Lastly, domain names are subject to restrictions due to trademark and copyright laws. Most of the time, the owner of a registered trademark is able to contest the ownership of a domain name that mimics the registered trademark. This can be a very murky area, but in general it is highly recommended that you not register domains that infringe on registered trademarks unless you are the holder of that trademark (i.e.: pizza-hut.nuggetweb.com).
* Note: We can change your Merchant Shop web address (URL) after your shop has been created, however, that requires “copying” your Merchant Shop. Some settings may not be saved when changing your Merchant Shop web address. To change your Merchant Shop web address, please submit a ticket on our support portal.
