WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Currently my blog address, the one supplied by Webfaction is, "myname.webfactional.com." I bought a domain name from namecheap. Then I changed the URL forwarding to url frame so that if you type in the domain name I bought, you can see my blog.

Here are my questions. 1) Is that the right way to do it? 2) I don't want my name to be associated with the website at this point. Is there any way people will be able to discover my name from going to my website? 3) Is my address from webfaction going to always be "somethingsomething.webfactional.com? Or is there a way to go ahead and change it right from the webfaction control panel to the domain name I purchased?

Sorry, I'm a complete newbie. Thanks a lot!

  1. You should follow this documentation to get your domain pointed at our servers.
  2. Whether or not your personal details can be determined from your domain registration depends on how you registered. Check with NameCheap to see if "WhoisGuard Privacy Protection" is enabled for your domain.
  3. You can add as many other domains to your account as you like. You can edit the existing website record in the control panel to change the domain that is assigned to it. If you are using WordPress, you may also need to update the siteurl and home fields as described here.

I hope this helps!
