Bottlenose - Frequently Asked Questions
I already have a website. Can I just link to the new Bottlenose website from my own website?
Yes, you can have your Bottlenose website set up separately from your existing website.
Bottlenose will set up your e-commerce website on a domain of your choosing. Note that this must be a standard domain such as www.abcwine.com.
We cannot set up your e-commerce website on a "third-level" domain.
- Example: I have already have a website at www.winestore.com. Can bottlenose set up my e-commerce website at shop.winestore.com?
No. This is not a standard domain. We could take over the existing website at www.winestore.com, or set up your e-commerce website on a new standard domain such as www.shopwinestore.com.
If you do not want Bottlenose to take over your existing website, you would be responsible for linking your existing website to your new Bottlenose e-commerce website.
