Pointing Your Domain With 1&1
Edit your “@” record under “Edit DNS Settings” in your Control Panel; point it to 188.8.131.52 and save; log into your site, then click “More” and select “URL / Custom Tracking Code“; enter the domain in the Top Level Domain field, select “Redirect Subdomain to Top Level Domain” and save.
You can easily connect your own domain to your site, and here are the steps for how to do this if you’ve registered your domain through 1&1 (note: the following instructions assume you’ve already registered your domain through 1&1, and be aware that it can take up to 48 hours for the domain to propagate fully).
1. Login to your 1&1 Account & Access Your Control Panel
Login to your 1&1 account, and enter your Customer ID and password, and click “Login”. If you have only one package, you will land on the Administration page. If you have more than one package, select the package in question to reach its Administration page.
2. Go To Your Domains
Click the Domains link from the Domains & Webspace panel.
3. Check the box next to the domain to select it and then click “Edit DNS Settings“
4. Point Your Domain to our IP Address
Make sure “DNS” is checked (see below). From the “Basic DNS Settings” drop down menu select “1&1 name server”. Under “Advanced DNS Settings” check “Other IP address” and add 107 20 136 32 (our IP address) below in the four boxes. Click “OK”.
Click here to learn the final steps of pointing your Domain. These last steps are inside our application.
Or go to the list of providers, if 1&1 is not your Registrar.
You can contact 1&1 support if you need assistance doing this.
