For more information about these domain types, see Types of Domains and Domain Options for Web Stores.

To supplement your web store, you can also set up the following types of domain as described in Set Up a Domain.

After you have finished setting up your domain, the Domain Health Status feature shows you if the setup has been done correctly and provides guidance on how to fix any errors. See Troubleshoot Domain Setup Errors for details.
