Hosting your site under your own domain

Your website may be displayed under a domain you own. This will make all pages on your site available under http://mydomain.tld/page.html.

 

If you don't have a domain name yet, you may register one at GoDaddy.com, or at any other domain registrar.

If you already have a domain, please follow the two steps below to point it to your site.

 

  1. Specify your domain name(s) under My Domain field in Site Properties
  2. Set your domain to point to IP address 72.20.110.40

 

 

Step 1: File your domain name(s) under My Domain in Site Properties
    

  • Go to the Admin view of your site. From Control Panel option on top right choose Site Properties.
  • In My domain field list your domain name(s) both with and without www,  separated with a comma.
        

       
  • Click
      
    Step 2.  Set your domain to point to our IP address

  

The approach to this step depends on the level of control you have over your domain name. For each option please allow up to 48 hours for the change to get fully propagated.

 

   Option A. You can manage the DNS for your domain from the registrar's website

Login to your registrar's website with the username and password for your domain management account. 
Locate the option for DNS Management (different registrars may use different names for it, e.g. DNS Control). Set the IP (A record) of your domain to IP 72.20.110.40 .
Create an alias (CNAME record) "www" pointing the record you created.
If your domain is registered with GoDaddy.com, please follow these step-by-step instructions.
  

  Option B. You (or your hosting company) manage the DNS servers for your domain

You need to set (or ask your hosting company to do so) the IP address of your domain to 72.20.110.40. It is recommended to also create an alias (CNAME) for www.yourdomain.tld pointing to the same IP address.
 

   Option C. You can't manage your DNS from the registrar's website

You can use one of the many free DNS hosting services like http://www.xname.org, http://www.everydns.net, http://www.zoneedit.com. The interface in each one of them is different, but your goal is the same: to create "A" record pointing to IP 72.20.110.40 and add www alias "CNAME" pointing to this record. Here is an example how to do this with EveryDNS.
 

   Option D. If none of the above works for you
