If you have a domain name purchased elsewhere, you can connect it to your Nicepage website.

Setting Up A Domain Name

Please go to the domain settings on the registrar website where you have registered the domain itself (Godaddy, HostGator, Amazon Route 53, Namecheap, etc.) and set up your domain to point to the NicePage:

  1. Go to the control panel of your domain
  2. Find something like 'Add a record to DNS' in the settings
  3. Do one of the following or both:

For a domain:

  • Add a type A record with empty Host (Hostname) and the IP address 35.157.174.232
    Please note that the way how to set Host or Hostname may be different for different hosting companies. In some cases, you should use @ instead of empty filed. If you already have an empty or @ A record, you need to change it.

For a subdomain e.g., sub.mysite.com, www.mysite.com

  • Add an A record with the IP address 35.157.174.232 and your subdomain (e.g., sub or www) in the host (hostname) filed

Note, it may take 6 - 72 hours to apply the changes.

If you want to use WWW, be sure you set up both WWW and @ record. If you don't, your site may appear insecure. Your visitors may see an "Insecure website" message, and browsers may prevent access to your website.

Please refer to the domain name registrar's instructions or contact their support service if you run into any issues.

On the screenshots below, you can see how to do this for Amazon Route53 for a domain (with an empty Name filed) and subdomain "WWW.mydomain.com."
