How to point your domain in various registrar's systems

The Quick Answer

  • If you bought your domain name from Zeald, using http://portal.zeald.com, you won't need to create a CNAME record as this is done for you automatically
  • If your domain is registered with another company, you'll need to follow company-specific instructions below
  • If you can't figure out how to do it, you will probably need to contact your registrar's tech support and ask them how to do it (or to do it for you) - unfortunately Zeald's support team aren't familiar with every possible registrar's systems

Other hosting services

  1. Log in to your account on your hosting service's website, and go to the DNS management page.
    Since CNAME records are special Domain Name Service (DNS) records, they may be in sections such as DNS Management or Name Server Management. It's possible that you will have to enable advanced settings to create a CNAME record.
  2. Delete existing CNAME entries for the address you want to use with your website.
    Before entering a new CNAME record to point to Zeald, you should first delete any existing entries for the same alias. If you plan to transfer an existing web address to websiteger, you may want to copy any content currently at that address elsewhere first.
  3. Use the information in the following table when you create your CNAME record.
    If your service requires you to enter server information directly into the DNS tables, the entry below needs to have a type CNAME associated with them.

    Value/Destination
