Details about registering a domain with Bubble

Hello
I have a couple of questions about registering a domain with bubble:

  1. Can I register more than one? (first is included, how much it is for additional domains pointing to the same app)

  2. Is it possible to have the private whois’s details (to not expose my private address, name, phone etc…)

  3. Does Bubble act as a standard domain registrant, allowing domain transfer on demand etc?

Thank you
and happy new year!

Hey @rhinoted,

Here’s a quick run through of your questions:

Registration
You’ll need to register your domains independently through a registrar such as GoDaddy or NameCheap. Bubble doesn’t support domain registration through their service as of today, though that would be a good revenue driver.

Forwarding
You can create and manage forwarding rules at the registrar level. Bubble can only assign those for pages you create. You can ‘fake’ domain forwarding if you have separate projects for each domain with automated workflows.

Privacy
You’ll need to purchase WHOIS privacy protection from your registrar to protect your domain owner information.

Registrar
Your registrar will remain your go-to source for transfers, pointers and support regarding your domain.

Thank you Salar, I’m enrolled in your course, it is very interesting.

What about the tab “domain e email” in the settings? it’s written “Pick a domain name and click set up this domain. this will register the domain with bubble and will provide you with what you need to redirect your domain to your app”

Much like the documentation and interface copy, it’s a bit misleading. Bubble isn’t a domain registrar here. Those instructions could have been better communicated with “Register a domain name and enter it below. We’ll provide you with DNS records for your registrar in order to point the domain to your Bubble project.”

Ok I see…

If I register multiple domais and then redirect all of them to the same app there is some way I could be messing with SEO? I will be able to choose like the “main one” from the bubble panel?

It probably depends on what you are trying to do, however …

You are probably best off doing the redirects at the DNS end, so picking one “main” domain and setting that up on bubble, then redirecting the others to that.

So for example if you have yourdomain.com you probably will have www.yourdomain.com redirected in the setup anyway and if you have yourdomain.co.uk (for example) it is probably going to be easier to redirect to the .com one. Most domain management tools allow this.
