Buy from reputable hosting providers like Hostinger to gather your domain and hosting in one place and get additional value, like a free SSL certificate that secures your website.
Then, install a content management system (CMS) – the choice is up to you, but our recommendation is WordPress. Pick a theme you like, customize it, and add content to attract visitors and improve search rankings. Now, you have a beautiful .studio website to call yours.

How Do I Transfer My .studio Domain to Hostinger?
Enter the .studio domain name you want to bring to Hostinger on our Transfer domain page. Then, proceed with the payment and submit the EPP code. We will take care of the process for you.
Before transferring your .studio domain name to us, ensure you have full ownership and that it is active and older than 60 days.
How Do I Renew a .studio Domain?
If you registered a .studio domain name at Hostinger, renew it on the Billing -> Services page on our hPanel. Click the Renew now button and pay the renewal cost of $0.00. Note that domain renewal is only possible two months before the expiration date, so you’ll see the button only if this action is available.
But what if you passed the expiration date? No need to panic. If it’s still within the grace period, the Renew button will still work. Contact our Customer Success team while the domain is in the redemption period – this process will require an additional fee.
To relieve the anxiety about missing the grace period, just have auto-renew enabled. It’s also possible to transfer your .studio domain to Hostinger and renew it here if you’ve registered it elsewhere.
