If you already have your own domain name with another provider, you can easily point it to your Create website. To do this, you will need to add two specific DNS records to your domain, which are provided in your Create account. They will be shown as a CNAME and A record.
First, you'll need to add the domain name to your Create account. To do this please follow the instructions below:
Next, you will need to log in to the account where your domain name is kept and configure some settings to point it to your Create website.
Record Type: CNAME
Record Type: A
**The above are examples, please refer to your own Create account for the specific details of your records.
For the A record, if your domain provider does not accept the @ as the hostname, you can leave it blank.
The specific settings you need will be displayed in your Create account in the 'Manage Domain Names & Email' area where you added the domain name. You will see the CNAME and A records you need to update to beneath your added domain name.
NOTE: Every domain registrar will have a different settings area, so it's worth finding your registrar's guide on updating a domain's DNS settings or speaking with their support team if you're not sure how to make these changes.
Allow around 30 minutes for the settings to be updated (this might take longer depending on how quickly your provider makes the changes). Then click the button 'Check Domain Settings' and our system will check the settings you have created. If correct the setup settings for the domain name will disappear.
