The Detailed Answer

You can easily connect your own domain to your site, and here are the general steps for how to do this. It will allow you to change from the current subdomain (remove “Breezi” from the address), to a TLD (Top Level Domain) of yours.

Note: the following instructions assume you’ve already registered your domain, and be aware that it can take up to 48 hours for the domain to propagate fully.

1. Log Into Your Account

Log into your domain registrar’s site and access your account. For a list of available instructions of specific providers, click here.

2. Access the DNS Manager

Find the area in your domain registrar account where you can edit DNS settings, which also may be titled something like “DNS Manager,” “Zone File Settings,” “Domain Settings,” “DNS Records,” etc.

3. Point Your Domain to our IP Address

Look to see if there’s already a list of “A (Host)” records – you need to either update the “@” record here (or add an “@” record), and point it to our IP address: 107.20.136.32

It should look something like this:
