- Enable and schedule weekly backups
- Review status reports
- Optimize performance
To get started, you need to create your Live environment and have a registered domain name where you can control DNS settings.
Pantheon is not a domain registrar, and we do not offer DNS management as a service. To connect a custom domain to Pantheon, you need to register one with a third-party provider.
