If you’ve ever bought or sold something online, there’s a good chance you’ve already heard of Etsy — a marketplace where people around the world connect, both online and offline, to make, sell and buy unique goods. To provide an even better experience for sellers, Etsy recently launched a new way to showcase your creations with its latest offering, Pattern.
We’re excited to announce that Pattern by Etsy is the latest addition to our Connect gallery, making it incredibly easy to set up your domain name with your Pattern website. In just a few clicks, you can start sending people to your unique online store to browse (and hopefully buy) your awesome work.
What is Pattern by Etsy?
Pattern by Etsy allows Etsy sellers to create their own websites that are powered by their Etsy shops. After choosing a theme and colour palette, Pattern does the rest and creates a beautiful website showcasing all of the great work you’ve listed for sale on Etsy. Plus, since your Pattern site is all about you, you can be assured that visitors won’t get distracted by other sellers’ work.
How to Connect a Domain Name to Pattern by Etsy
Once you have your Pattern website ready to go, we’ve made setting up your Hover domain name as easy as possible.
1. Register a domain name with Hover.
Obviously, you’ll first need a domain name to set up. Might we suggest using the just-launched .STORE domain extension?
2. Select ‘Pattern by Etsy’ in the Hover Connect gallery.
In your domain details, click Connect.
Find ‘Pattern by Etsy’ and select Get Started.
3. Add your domain to Pattern by Etsy.
In your Pattern dashboard, add your domain name to your site.
4. Select a subdomain & enter your Pattern URL.
First, select which subdomain you’d like to use (e.g. ‘www.yourdomain.com’ vs. ‘store.yourdomain.com’). Then, enter your Pattern domain name and click Connect.
After clicking Connect, your settings will then be automatically configured to connect your domain name to your Pattern website! If you don’t see anything right away, don’t panic — your settings may need a few minutes to go live.
