Set up your domain for Hosting
You don't have to give up your unique, brand-centric domain names with Firebase Hosting. You can use a custom domain like example. Make sure that you've completed the "Get Started" wizard from your project's Firebase Hosting page so that you have a Firebase Hosting site in your Firebase project. From your project's Hosting page , enter the wizard for connecting a custom domain:. Optional Check the box to redirect all requests on the custom domain to a second specified domain such that example. These steps ensure that your domain is not already linked with a Firebase project and that you own the specified domain.
Register a New Domain Name
In the same way that a GPS needs a street address or a zipcode to provide directions, a web browser needs a domain name to direct you to a website. A domain name takes the form of two main elements. For example, the domain name Facebook. ICANN specifies which domain name extensions are available and keeps a centralized database of where the domain names point to. Every website that you visit effectively consists of two main elements: a domain name and a web server. Without a domain name, anyone who wanted to visit your website would have to enter the full IP address.
You need two things to have a successful website and professional email: a domain name and a hosting account. Without a domain name, your website visitors won't have a memorable way to get to your website. And without a hosting account, there won't be a website to go to. Bluehost offers both hosting and domain names to make it easy to manage your email, website, and domains— all in one place.
