Once your site has been activated by paying the registration fee, you can connect your domain name by following the steps below.
Step 1: Set the domain name in your account dashboard
Visit the Sites section of your account dashboard, then enter the domain name you would like to use under Set your domain name, then click Save.
Step 2: Update the DNS records with your domain provider
You will now see the DNS records required. If you don't have control over the domain name, send these details to the person who does. An example email message is provided below the DNS records. If you do have control over this domain, continue reading.
Log into your domain provider
Open a new tab in your browser.
Go to your domain host's website and log in.
Find your domain settings page
Go to the domains page on your domain host's website.
Find your domain and go to the settings panel.
Find your domain DNS records
In your domain settings, find the area where you manage or edit DNS records.
Enter the records shown to you in your account dashboard.
If you're having difficulty updating your DNS records, contact your domain host for assistance.
Step 3: Wait for the DNS records to propagate
Click the Check now button in your account dashboard.
It may take 15 minutes to 24 hours for DNS to fully update. If the records aren't found yet, we'll keep checking for you over the next day and send you an email when the required DNS is found. If it still isn't found after a day please contact support.
Step 4: Apply the domain name
Once we can find the correct DNS records, click Apply this domain name. Your site will then be registered with the new domain name. 🎉
