Register your domain name
The domain name or URL is what people type into the browser address bar to visit your website. We recommend using a second-level domain for the Website builder. It consists of 2 words separated by the dot. For example, travelline.pro.
Read the tips on how to choose a domain name. If you already have it, you may use it for the Website builder.
Please note that it is not required to buy the hosting in addition to the domain name. We`ll take care of the website hosting and its security. We can also install SSL - certificate issued by “Let`s Encrypt” certification authority to enable encrypted connection for the users accessing your website.
How to connect a domain to the hosting
Once the domain is registered, you should host it.
Hosting can be compared with the house foundation
Website content with its walls
Domain with its roof
If the domain is not connected to the hostings, the house will fall apart - so the guests won`t find your website.
There are 2 ways of connecting the domain name to the hosting
1. Changing DNS-servers (recommended one).
DNS (Domain name system) is a server that is specifically used for matching website hostnames (like example.com) to their corresponding Internet Protocol or IP addresses.
Find the DNS zone editor of the domain name in the registrar account. It can be called “DNS- servers” or “NS-servers”. Add the following DNS-servers:
2. A-record changing
This way is prefered if the domain name is used for your email or you are going to use subdomain on your website.
IP-address is a unique address that identifies a device on the internet or a local network. For example, a server address where the website is hosted.
If you choose this way, you should change A-record (IP-address) to 18.104.22.168. It will be changed during 24 hours.
After that it will be possible to install an SSL-certificate. Please note that you should change A-record to 22.214.171.124 after the certificate installation.
Connect a domain name to the Website builder
Whatever way you choose, once the settings are made, you should connect a domain name to the Website builder.
To do this go to the “Website builder” > “Domain settings” section.
Add the domain name into the corresponding field and click “Check domain” button.
Confirm that you are the domain owner and click “Get domain set up instructions” button.
