Websites created in WebWave - responsive webdesign application - are displayed on subdomain webwavecms.com by default. Your webpage can obtain HTTP address similar to this: http://websiteID.webwavecms.com. To each website you can easily add your own domain. This allows you to show your website under address you want, e.g. http://mydomainname.com. You can change domain in two ways:
1. Register new domain via WebWave CMS interface - you can learn that here.
2. Redirect domain registered under 3rd party provider - this article will explain this metod.
