Domain Related FAQ
In this article we will address specific concerns or doubts related to setting up your Domain.
You might find yourself in one of the following cases, and with this guide we may be able to help you get going.
Before Entering your Domain in Breezi
You may experience problems if you enter your Domain without it being successfully pointed at your registrar.
Can I point multiple Domains to my site?
No, you can only point one domain to one Breezi site.
I purchased a Domain with a (random) Registrar, how do I link it to Breezi?
You need to edit the A records on the DNS management and point it to Breezi’s IP: 18.104.22.168.
If you don’t know where you purchased your domain, keep reading (almost at the bottom).
What about FTP?
Breezi does not offer FTP management – only website hosting.
And you don’t need any FTP account, only if you want to back up or host your site yourself. Look at the next question.
But I already have a hosting account, how do I set it up with Breezi?
You don’t have too. Breezi is independent from a hosting account.
However, and only if you want (it’s not necessary), you can sync your site to download your Breezi site files to a hosting account of yours, as a backup. It can also be a Dropbox or a Google Drive account.
Learn more about the FTP sync tool.
Will both “Old” and “New” login pages work?
Yes! When your Domain is successfully pointed, note that both yoursite.com/login and yoursite.breezi.com/login pages will work as the login entrance for managing and editing your site.
Will my Email break if I change my Domain to Breezi?
No, your Email will continue to work when you point your A records to Breezi, since this setup does not require to edit the MX records.
MX records are the ones in charge of Email in your domain.
I have set up my Domain with Breezi, what happens to Email?
If you didn’t edit the MX records, your Email will continue to work just the same. You don’t have to take additional action to keep your Email working.
I already pointed my A record to Breezi’s IP, why is it not working?
You must follow one last step to get your Domain working with Breezi.
Edit the “Top Level Domain for This Site” field on the “URL & Custom Tracking Code” option from the “More” menu in Breezi. See detailed instructions here.
Check this very article for other possible causes:
- Verify that your Domain was pointed correctly
- Wait up to 48 hours
- Make sure your site is published
- Enter your Domain in Breezi and save
Why am I getting the “X” symbol on Breezi’s settings?
This can mean one of two things: either the Domain hasn’t been pointed successfully (learn how to check it) or it hasn’t propagated around the world. It can take up to 48 hours.
Otherwise you must look back and review or ask for tech help to either our support team or the one from your registrar. Learn more at the bottom of this post.
Once it’s OK, that field on the settings should display a green check mark/tick.
How do I ultimately know that everything is OK?
Do a browser test: publish your changes, log out of your site and open the Domain URL you pointed to Breezi.
If you see your site, then it’s successfully pointed.
What service should I use for Email?
Breezi does not provide Email services, but there are a lot of third parties that do. Here are some of the most popular:
You can choose any of those to set up Email at your Domain.
If you want to set them up, read on to the next question.
How do I set my Email up?
Depending on the Email hosting service you want to use and the Registrar where you purchased your Domain, the process and the screens you’ll have to go over may vary a little bit. Some Registrars let you do this automatically with a few clicks, without you having to go manually over the updates of the MX records.
Or you can ask their support team to do this for you.
In case you want to do it yourself, you’ll need to set up an account on the respective Email service of your choice first. Then you’ll have to look at the table of MX records for that particular service, and update your table on your DNS records panel or management section.
For example, for Google Apps, you would have to enter the following addresses:
Here’s a list of instructions for the providers listed above.
My Registrar doesn’t allow me to edit DNS settings, how do I link it to Breezi?
Unfortunately, if your Registrar doesn’t let you change your records, or doesn’t give you access to the DNS panel, you won’t be able to point it to Breezi. You’ll need to transfer your domain to a Registrar that lets you do so.
Also note that some Registrars might do this for you, if you contact them directly and ask them.
Need your Domain registrar to help with the pointing?
You can contact your domain registrar’s support if you need assistance doing this, and call or submit a ticket using the following request:
I’ve created a website using Breezi, and I need help pointing my domain, yourdomain.com, to their 22.214.171.124 IP address. Can you please point the “@” A and “WWW” (Host) records to this IP address for me, or provide me with clear instructions on how to do this?
For more information on this, please visit this instructions page.
Thanks for your help!
No idea where you registered your domain?
In case you’ve already registered a domain but forgot about it and can’t remember where it was, you can use the following tip to find out.
Visit http://whois.domaintools.com/, enter your domain name, click on the tab labeled “Registration” and look where it says, “ICANN Registrar:”. Following this phrase should be the name of the registrar where your domain was purchased.
Forgot your login/password/credentials?
Contact your registrar’s tech support to ask them about those details.
Most providers have a “forgot password” functionality, where you enter your email and a reset link (or your current password) is sent to that email.
If you don’t know where you purchased your domain, look at the question above.
