Where do I find these DNS settings?
We've made detailed walkthroughs of how to make these settings for these domain companies:
Other companies will follow soon. If you're having trouble finding these settings, contact your domain company. They'll be able to provide you with detailed step-by-step instructions on how to set CNAME and A-Records correctly.
Availability with and without www subdomain
For every top-level domain (example.com) your domain company will let you set up subdomains (www.example.com, mysubdomain.example.com). It's generally a good pratice to have your website available at both the top-level domain and the www subdomain. We've set up a redirecting service that automatically takes people to your website even if they typed in the address without www. So if they typed in example.com, they will be taken to www.example.com. The redirecting service should work immediately once you've set everything up correctly.
CNAME not an option?
If your domain company doesn't allow custom CNAME records or you want to connect a domain without subdomain, use an A-Record to 188.8.131.52 instead. Do keep in mind however that this points specifically to our server's IP address. In case we upgrade our servers, you'll have to manually update that A-Record to match our new IP. With a CNAME record, your website will stay up even if we change our IP address.
