Getting started with your Porkbun account

Congratulations on purchasing a brand new domain at Porkbun!


If this is your first time working with us, we have compiled some handy articles to help you get started with our site.

Looking for an easy way to start building a website? Porkbun has partnered with Weebly to bring you a powerful website builder that is available for a three month free trial with any domain registered at Porkbun. The site builder allows you to create powerful, professional sites with dynamic and easy to use drag & drop tools.

See our full guide, how to use the site builder, for more info.


If the site builder isn’t right for you, and you’d like a more traditional hosting solution, check out our guide on how to set up traditional (cPanel) web hosting.

If you’d like a custom email address to go along with your new domain, we offer a two month free trial of our email hosting service. We also offer up to 10 forwarding addresses per domain, free of charge.

Check out our guide, Hosted email vs. email forwarding, to decide which option is right for you.


If you’ve decided to host with one of the many popular site builders, such as Squarespace, Weebly, or Wix, our Quickconnect option will help you connect your website to your domain in no time flat.

See our handy articles on how to connect to Squarespace, Weebly, and Wix.


If you’re using a hosting provider not covered by QuickConnect, you can still connect using A records, or nameservers. Contact your web host for the records they require and follow our guides on how to set them up.

Finally, if you just need to forward your domain to another website, our URL forwarder has you covered. This is a handy solution if you need to redirect your domain in a pinch.
