Pointing Your Domain With Namecheap
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 Namecheap.
Note: the following instructions assume you’ve already registered your Domain through Namecheap, and be aware that it can take up to 48 hours for the domain to propagate fully.
Follow These Steps
1. Login to your Namecheap Account
On namecheap.com, hover over “My Account” and click “Manage Domains“. This takes you to a login page where you can enter your login information.
2. Select the Domain You’d Like to Point
You should see a list of your Domains – find the domain you’d like to point to your site, and click the linked domain name.
This applies in case you have more than one Domain registered.
3. Go to URL Forwarding
In the left sidebar, under “Host Management” click “URL Forwarding”.
4. Edit “A Record” to Point Your Domain
Look for the “@” and “www” records under “Host Name” – to the right of that, under the column heading “IP Address/URL” enter 188.8.131.52 (our IP address) in both fields. Also make sure “A (Address” is selected from the drop-down menu on both fields, under “Record Type”. See screenshot below. Click “Save Changes” when you’re done.
