What is a custom domain?
A custom domain is a customized URL for any website currently online on the Internet.
For example, the custom domain for UENI is http://ueni.com/.
Similarly, for Google, the custom domain is https://www.google.com/.
When you create a free account on the Starter plan with us, you get a default UENI domain. For example, if you create an account for a business called 'Alex Plants', the URL for that website would be https://alexplants.ueniweb.com/.
However, with a custom domain, the same business could have the following URL: https://alexplants.com/. The removal of the .ueniweb portion is what makes a custom domain stand out.
