Ecwid Starter Site allows you to change its web address (URL), so that it reflects the name of your store or brand and your customers can easily find it in the organic search results.
By default, each Ecwid Starter Site is available as a subdomain of ecwid.com address: for example, https://storeXXXXXX.ecwid.com, where ‘XXXXXX’ is the ID of your store.
You can change the subdomain part and use your store name instead or buy a totally custom domain name and connect it to your Starter Site.
Ecwid provides free SSL protection for all ecwid.com subdomains and custom domains, connected to the Starter Site, so that all Starter Sites always have https:// links.

If you do not have your own domain name yet, you can use Ecwid subdomain for the Starter Site for free. In this case the Starter Site link will start with your custom name and end with ecwid.com, e.g. https://mysuperstore.ecwid.com.
To change the Starter Site link:
- Go to your Ecwid Control Panel → Starter Site.
- Click Change URL in the Starter Site address section:
- Type in your desired name in the Use our subdomain field:
- Click Save.
If you own a domain and want to have your Starter Site there, you can just connect your domain to your Ecwid Starter Site. Ecwid will provide SSL for your domain for free, so your site will run via HTTPS. See the step-be-step instructions on how to connect your own domain to Starter Site.
