Pointing a domain at your website

Written by Hamish Braddick on April 1st, 2008.      0 comments

If you would rather keep your domain name hosted with an external provider, you can point your domain name at Zeald's webservers while keeping control of the domain, email etc with the other provider.

To do this you will need to either use the web interface provided by your other host, or otherwise instruct that host to make the following changes
  1. We will need to update your website's settings to accept this new domain name (until this is done the domain will be redirected to a page that says "Domain not found") - to do this contact the Zeald support team. The website can be updated to accept the domain before you make the following changes to ensure the switchover happens smoothly
  2. Point the domain at the following IP address
  3. Setup the www subdomain to point to (if you need to enter an IP address use
It may take up to 48 hours for these changes to take effect.
