If you would like to use your own domain name with your Jimdo site, you can transfer it or connect it to your Jimdo account.

How to transfer to your Jimdo account your Namecheap domain name:

Once you have completed the domain name transfer from Namecheap to Jimdo the latter will host and maintain your domain name. Jimdo only allows transferring “basic domain names” such as .org, .com, .net, .co.uk and so on. When transferring a domain name, you need to:

Follow these steps for .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, .de, or .ch domain name transfers.

Follow these instructions to transfer your .co.uk domain name to Jimdo.

How to point (connect) a Namecheap domain name to your Jimdo site:

Another option is to keep your domain name at Namecheap and map the domain to your Jimdo site. Some changes are needed through Namecheap’s platform. You should ask Namecheap to make the required changes. When you open a support ticket with Namecheap please make sure to send them these instructions from Jimdo.

Additional Information

You will only be able to use your Namecheap domain name when you purchase a premium plan. For free sites, a Jimdo subdomain (such as example.jimdo.com) is provided.

At Jimdo, basic domain names such as .net, .com, .org or .co.uk are $20 per year. However, more domain extensions are available. You can take a look at the different prices of Jimdo.

Namecheap offers better deals for domain name registration. A .com domain name is around $ 10 per year. In order to use your Namecheap domain name, you only need a basic domain name—no extra functionalities are required.

Yes, if you have a paid plan, you can buy either one email address for $12 per year or a bundle of 10 email addresses for $60 per year to save money. You’ll find detailed information here.

However, Namecheap is a cheaper solution for your email accounts. Have a look at Namecheap’s prices.
