Mapping a domain name to your Website Builder (v8)

Mapping your domain is done in both the account and in the Website builder editor.

1. First we need to map it in your account. Please follow these steps:

  1. Log into your account.
  2. Click the green MY PRODUCTS button.
  3. Click Website Builder under My Products.
  4. Click the link that says Change under Website Domain Name.
  5. Select your domain from the drop-down menu and click Update.
  6. This will create the DNS records that you need and allow you to publish directly to your domain name.

2. Once mapped in the account we may also need to do it in the Website Builder editor.

To map a domain:

  1. Click the Main menu icon (1)
  2. Click Site settings (2)
  3. Click Domain mapping (3)
  4. Click Map a domain or click the + button (4)
  5. Map your domain using your domain provider's control panel. These control panels differ between providers but the process remains the same:
  • For the domain you want to map, go to the DNS settings page.
  • If you want to point the www subdomain to your website (for example, add a CNAME record, setting the host to ‘www’ and pointing to XXX
  • If you want to point the naked domain to your website (for example, add an A record, setting the host to ‘@’ and pointing to XXX

6. Click the Test Mapping button to check if the DNS is setup correctly. DNS changes can take anything from two minutes to 24 hours, but typically happen in less than 2 hours

7. When the test passes, click Map domain to create the mapping
