HOW TO CONNECT A DOMAIN





You can connect ANY domain you own to your new site (global - .com, .net, .info etc. or local - .fr, .co.uk, .com.au etc).


To connect a domain:


1. Click the green PUBLISH button at the top right corner of the editor. If you haven't registered already or saved the site, you will be asked to do so.


2. Choose a subscription plan and click Continue - ITS FREE!!!!! And choose to conect your domain. Insert your domain name: WWW.EXAMPLE.COM All our subscriptions include unlimited hosting and bandwidth and up to 10 emails. Connecting your existing domain requires changing the DNS Records in your registrar so that the domain will point to our servers and your new site.


To connect your domain:


1. Log in to your registrar account The registrar is where you originally purchased the domain. If you don't remember who your registrar is, you can use whois.net to find out.


2. Locate the Control Panel or Domain Manager of your domain in your registrar account. The control panel allows you to change the DNS records from the default ones provided by the registrar. Different registrars may have different control panel layouts and other names for it as well.


You might find it under 'DNS Manager' or 'Domain Manager".


3. In your registrar's Control Panel, change the A record and the CNAME: Add an empty (@) A record, with the value of 174.129.25.170


Add a 'www' CNAME, with the value of imxprs.herokuapp.com

----------------------------------------------------------

A record - Host --> @ (empty) points to --> 174.129.25.170

CNAME - Host --> WWW points to --> imxprs.herokuapp.com

----------------------------------------------------------

Make sure to SAVE these changes. Few important notes:


1) It may take up to 24 hours for these changes to propagate worldwide.


2) If there are previous A records in your DNS settings - make sure to delete them.
