If you own a custom domain purchased elsewhere, you can connect it to a Nicepage website.

Go to Website Settings >> General Tab and put the name of the domain in the field "Custom Domain". For instance, mysite.com.

Then click "Publish and Preview" to publish your website:

Next, you will have to go to the domain settings on the registrar website where you have registered the domain itself (Godaddy, HostGator, Amazon Route 53, Namecheap, etc.).

  1. Go to the control panel of your domain
  2. In the settings, find something like 'Add a record to DNS.'
  3. Do one of the following:

For a domain

  • Add a type A record with empty Host (Hostname) and the IP address 54.72.144.12
    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 54.72.144.12 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 run into any issues, please refer to instructions at the domain name registrar or contact their support service.

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