Pointing Your Domain With FastDomain
Edit your “@” record under “Host Record” in your DNS Zone Editor; point it to 126.96.36.199 and save; log into your site, then click “More” on the shelf 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 FastDomain (note: the following instructions assume you’ve already registered your domain through FastDomain, and be aware that it can take up to 48 hours for the domain to propagate fully).
1. Login to your FastDomain Account & Go to DNS Zone Editor
Login, and enter your Domain or Username and password, and click “Login”. Select the “DNS Zone Editor” icon in the “Domains” section. Select the domain you’re modifying from the drop-down box.
2. Point Your Domain to our IP Address
If there’s already an “@” record under “Host Record” (“Type” should have “A” or “A-Record” selected), change the “Points to” field to 188.8.131.52 (our IP address), and then click “Save”. If there isn’t an “@” record under “Host Record” currently, scroll down and select “Add DNS Record”.
In the “Host Record” field, enter “@”; leave the “TTL” field at it’s default setting; select “A” or “A-record” from the drop-down labeled “Type”; and in the “Points To” field, enter 184.108.40.206 (our IP address). Click “Add Record” to create the record.
