Overview

If you have a Domain Name purchased elsewhere, you can connect it to your Nicepage website.

Registrar Domain Settings

Please go to the Domain Settings on the Registrar website where you have registered the Domain itself, for example, Godaddy, HostGator, Amazon Route 53, Namecheap, etc.

Set up your Domain Name to point to the Nicepage network.

  1. Go to the Registrar Control Panel of your Domain.
  2. In the Settings, find something like "Add a record to DNS."
  3. Enter one of the following or both A Records.

Important Note

IMPORTANT! It takes from 6 to 72 hours to apply the changes!

Domain A Record

Add a type A record with an empty Host (Hostname) and the IP address 35.157.174.232

NOTE: The Host Setting or Hostname for hosting companies may differ. In some cases, you should use @ instead of empty filed. If you already have a blank or @ A record, you need to change it.

Subdomain A Record

For a subdomain (for example, 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.

Insecure Website Message

If you want to use WWW, 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 encounter any issues.

The screenshots below show how to do this for Amazon Route53 for a domain. There is an empty Name filed and subdomain "WWW.mydomain.com."
