Your domain-name is the address people enter in their browser, to access your internet-sites. E.g. Aqqii.com for this site.
You will need to decide what domain-name you want to use.
|Parts of the internet-address||Explanation|
|http||(Source: Wikipedia) In short, the http stands for "HyperText Transfer Protocol" and is the technical protocol for our internet.|
|(http)s||It stands for "Secure" and it means that the communication (between visitor and your website) is encrypted. It is recommended in general, and specifically when dealing with sensitive information. E.g. personal data or payments. Aqqii arranges this by default.|

When you are not sure, search the internet for further considerations. There are quite some blogs on it.
Moving your domain to Aqqii
Aqqii will arrange and procure the domain-name for you. In the contract with Aqqii, you will be stated as the owner.
In case you already have a domain, Aqqii can transfer it from your current hosting-partner to Aqqii(‘s hosting partner).
You only need to request your current hosting-partner for the ‘Domain Transfer Key’. The rest will be taken care of by Aqqii.
The transfer will be done before go life. Visitors will not notice this. They will ‘only’ see changes we will make, such as a new webstore!
