How do I set my domain name?

Great question! It’s an easy, four-step process.

  1. Register your domain. If you haven’t already done so, register your domain name. We recommend Google Domains, as they only charge $12/year and have free privacy services.
  2. Update the DNS record. Once your domain name is registered, set the DNS “A” record to 184.168.203.1. You’ll have to follow your domain registrar’s instructions on how to do this. Although it may sound difficult or intimidating, if you are unfamiliar with these terms, it is usually a fairly painless process. On Google, it will look like this. This tells your registrar to point your domain to zwoodle.
  3. Contact us and let us know that you would like to add this domain. The process often takes 24-48 hours. We will respond and let you know when your domain has been added to our hosted domains.
  4. Add your domain to your site. After you get an e-mail confirmation that the domain name has been processed, visit Tools > Domain Mapping (in your admin area) and enter the URL. Select it as your primary domain, if you wish.

That’s it!
