Launching Your StoreBuilder Online Store



With StoreBuilder by Nexcess, it’s time to launch your StoreBuilder online store and show your products to the world!

It’s time to launch your StoreBuilder store, and show your products to the world!



At a minimum, you will want to fine-tune your store design, add all your products and team members, work out your shipping and taxes, and link your credit card payment gateway.

Depending on the complexity of your store and your processes, there may be other steps you will want to complete before you take this step.

Creating coupons, working out emails, setting up analytics, and many other options are available. If curious about these tools, the dashboard and video tutorials provide a number of options you may want to explore. And when you are ready, we make it easy.

So far, you have been building your store on your temporary URL. Now it is time to implement your real store name, the one you want your customers to use to access your store on the internet. This is commonly known as “your dot com” domain.

However, you don’t necessarily have to have a .com URL. We love .co, .biz, .club… all of these are called TLDs (Top Level Domain), and we don’t care what TLD you choose. The point is to find an online home that your customers will remember and enjoy.

You’ll have to purchase this name separately from any domain registrar you like.

You can buy one from Nexcess, but you can also use whatever registrar you wish to use. Common domain registrars that you might be using include Name Cheap, Hover, GoDaddy, or Domain.

Your domain registrar will have instructions on configuring your name servers. Look through their documentation to find out how to update your name servers and set them to the following:

  • ns1.nexcess.net
  • ns2.nexcess.net
  • ns3.nexcess.net
  • ns4.nexcess.net

Note: It may take between 24 and 48 hours for this to update across the Internet.

Once that period has passed, you can use the Go Live with a domain option in the setup dashboard to complete the transition.

Select that you already own a custom domain and wish to verify this domain to go live on your StoreBuilder site.

Setting Your Site Domain



Setting Your Site Domain #1


Starting the Process for Your Site Domain



Setting Your Site Domain #2


Entering Your Site Domain



Enter the domain name of the custom domain you will use on your StoreBuilder store to go live with.

Verify Your Domain


If the domain did not verify that it was using the Nexcess name servers, you would need to wait and try again later.

If you are used to making DNS changes, you can use the CNAME on your custom domain to go live:

We want to ensure there are no problems with your transition, so our system runs a quick check to ensure your store will work as expected.

Verfiying Your Site Domain

Verify Your Domain #2


If you skip verification of the site domain and the name servers or CNAME record is not updated, it will cause the StoreBuilder site to no longer load correctly. Therefore, it is recommended to ensure that the domain verifies correctly and then proceed to update the site URL. Once the site URL has been updated, you can access your StoreBuilder store over the custom domain.
