Customers who do not have a hosting account with PlanetHoster have the option, from their member area, to redirect their PlanetHoster-registered domain to Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin, or to any other domain.

Note: The PlanetHoster Glossary contains explanations on multiple topics and can be consulted to clarify certain terms.

Prerequisites

Enter the following address in your web browserhttps://my.planethoster.com.

Facebook/Meta URL

Log in to your Facebook account, then :

  1. Click on your alias (Your profile) :

Step 2
