How to get started building my site.

Can someone explain how this works. I bought a domain name. I go to SITE BUILDER and select a style then it ask for my web address. When I type it in it says invalid....? Are there any instructions anywhere?

Could be any number of reasons why the web address you want is invalid. Try using nothing but letters a-z and numbers. Post the invalid address and someone will probably be able to tell you what the mistake is.

At a big guess the OP probably hasn't linked the domain to the hosting account.

We are of course lacking in information, not helped by the fact that this is posted as a generic web design question rather than one specific to a Bravenet service. Was the domain bought from Bravenet or elsewhere? Is the web hosting at Bravenet or elsewhere?

Thanks, I was able to get the page up but only after I left off the ".com" at the end of the domain name. I purchased the domain from bravenet. But now the domain has ".bravesites.com" at the end. I assume this for the free hosting, but I paid for the domain and would prefer it be just ".com".

If we are talking about a free site with a paid domain then bravesites .com is correct.

If it is a paid site then you would have "mysite.com"

I think
