    Hi there, custom domains aren't available in the Lite account. You can utilize custom domains by upgrading to the Pay-As-You-Go account where it is available as a free perk. The Pay-As-You-Go account has no minimum charge so you only pay for what you use beyond the free tiers. There are also other free perks in the Pay-As-You-Go account in addition to the ability to have custom domains!

    Here's info on how to add custom domains -

    Also some info our account types to help you decide what's the best fit for you -

    Happy building!
