Link your sub-domain to Oxxle

Linking your store to an existing website

If you are planning on using a sub-domain for your shop, meaning you have an existing website and simply want your shop to be integrated into the site, the best way to do this is to create a sub-domain and call it shop.yourdomain.co.za as this is the most universal subdomain for stores. You can of course name it anything you want. If you are planning on linking your full domain name to Oxxle, please click here.
