How does using a custom domain work? I may be able to have my site made using replit rather then github

Custom domains are a two-step process.
First, you buy the domain -- this can be located on whois.
Then, you link the domain to your server, this is through DNS. When you click the pencil button (used to link custom domains), you enter in your domain, and you are given a DNS. Add this CNAME DNS to whatever your host is with the domain you typed. And that is all.
