Owning a domain is an important part of managing your brand. With Pattern, you have the option to set up a unique domain name linked to your site. You’re also welcome to use the default URL if you prefer not to manage a domain.
Registering a domain
If you do not already own a domain name, you can register up to three through our partner, Tucows, on your Pattern Dashboard. You’ll be able to manage domain records, set your renewal preferences, and create a professional email address that matches your domain.

Connecting a third-party domain
If you already registered a domain name, you can connect it to your Pattern site by editing records from your domain provider’s website. This Help article has more information about connecting a third-party domain to your Pattern site.
Using the Pattern default web address
You can still create a website on Pattern without a domain if you don't want to register one. Your default website address will be: YourEtsyShopName.patternbyetsy.com.
Disconnecting a domain from your site
You can continue to use a domain you registered through Etsy even if you cancel your Pattern subscription. To learn more about your different domain management options, like disconnecting your domain or pointing it to a different website, click here.
