We recommend using your domain provider's default nameservers and updating the DNS settings in your domain account. Most domains connect to a site within 24 hours, but it can sometimes take up to 72 hours. Keep this in mind if you have a deadline.
Only the publication owner or admin can set up a custom domain.
Step 1: Go to Publication Settings page
Step 2: Navigate to the Custom Domain tab
Step 3: Enter the domain name you want to connect to get your DNS records
You will receive 3 or 4 DNS records depending on your domain name.
Step 4: Log into your domain account
Log into your domain account and go to the section where you can manage your domain's DNS settings.
Depending on your provider, the settings for managing your domain's DNS records may be called DNS, Advanced DNS Records, Manage Domains, or something similar.
If there are existing records with the same Host value for the A and CNAME Record Type, you will need to remove them first.
Some domain providers like GoDaddy will have Parked DNS records. You will need to remove them before adding Storipress’ DNS records.
Note 1: If your domain provider provides a Proxy feature, you will need to disable it.
Note 2: If your domain provider does not provide 10 10-minute TTL, choose the shortest one.
Step 6: Click Verify DNS Settings after all DNS records are added
It may take a few minutes to hours for the verification process, especially if there are existing records with the same Type and Host before you set up the custom domain.
When everything is set up correctly, you will see the following screenshot.
Your site will become live after a few minutes when the custom domain is enabled. If you see any error messages after 24 hours have passed, contact live chat support using the ❓ help button on the bottom right of the app or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
