Point your domain

Do you want teams and players to find you on the interwebs more easily? Then what you need is a custom domain. is not hard to purchase and point to your LeagueTime organization website and best of all it doesn't cost much at all. Typical domain names can range in price from $3-15 per year. There are many domain registrars that you can purchase a domain at. Here are a few:

We will be showing you how to "forward" (point your domain) to your organization site with Godaddy's domain forwarding. All of the domain registrars should have some similar way of forwarding your domain, but we are showing Godaddy since it is one of the bigger domain registrars. Here are the quick and easy steps to get your domain up and running.

Step 1) First things first, sign up for a free account with Godaddy (or other domain registrar). Click on the Register button in the top right corner of their website. This will take you through the process of registering with their website so you can manage your domain once you purchase it.

Click on the "Register" button to begin the registration process.

Step 2) Search for a Domain that you want to buy and add it to your cart. Click on the "Domain" tab at the top and then click the "Find a Domain" link to search for a domain. Once you have purchased your domain then you will be able to Manage your domain information. Click on the "Domains" tab at the top again and then click on Manage My Domains.

Step 3) You will now be brought to a page where you can manage your domains. Click on the Domains row then click the "Launch" button on the far right next to the domain you want to add forwarding to.

Click on "Launch" next to the domain you want to add forwarding to.

Step 4) Next, click on the "Manage" link under the Domain area in the Forwarding section.  

Click on "Manage" under Forwarding.

Step 5a) Before you can add the forwarding you must copy your URL to your LeagueTime public website. To find that go to and login to your dashboard. Go to My Organizations and select your organization. Then highlight and copy the URL in the "Full URL" box. This is the URL to your public organization website.

Copy the URL from your Organization Dashboard.

Step 5b) Now, go back to Godaddy and click on the "Add Forwarding" button to set up the website you would like to forward your domain to. The next screen will allow you to add a URL to the website you want to forward your domain to. Click in the box and add your URL to your public LeagueTime organization website that you copied in Step 5a.

Add your URL in the Forward To box.

Step 6) Click the "Add" button and that should be it. It usually takes a few hours for your domain to propagate through the web. From now on you should be able to tell people to go to website and they will see your new site.

For extra awesomeness you can have us create your organization a custom designed theme for your organization website. Check out more information on that here: Custom Designs

That's it! Enjoy your new site and domain address. Good luck!
