If you have your own domain name that you would like to use instead of the web address we give you (https://www.CountyUnclaimed.com/Your-Username), then you need to “forward” your domain name to the web address we give.
Domain Name Forwarding takes place where you registered the domain name. For example, if you registered your domain name on GoDaddy.com, the instructions for forwarding your domain name are here.
Now, this is very important for you to understand: There are 2 types of forwarding, “Forward with Masking” to “Forward Only”
“Forward with Masking” will allow someone to type in your domain name and that name will always show in the address bar.
“Forward Only” will allow someone to type in your domain name and they will be taken to your website, however, the address shown in the address bar will be https://www.CountyUnclaimed.com/Your-Username
We have an SSL Security Certificate installed so that all of our client websites will show as Secure.
But if you do domain name forwarding with masking so that it continually shows your domain name in the address bar, than the Security is no longer there. Your clients will see that your website is not secure and may be scared off by that.
You make that choice.
