How to connect your domain to your social media

While you're building an amazing website, why not connect your domain to your social media. That way customers can engage with your business straight away.

Customers who search your domain will be taken to your social media like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more. To redirect your domain to your social media page:
