The Configuration

For a webpage created in Gevme, instead of showing www.gevme.com, you may wish to use your own domain instead. This can be easily configured in Gevme in just a few steps.

In this example, we will share how you can connect your preferred domain to this Gevme's website from the domain provider - Godaddy.
