Not sure how to update records?

The domain setup process differs from one domain registrar to another, so we have provided generic instructions for those with GoDaddy, Google Domains and Namecheap accounts. 

  • If you are still not sure how to update the records, we recommend contacting your registrar's support center for the most accurate information.

Tip: In case you're still having trouble setting everything up, or don't want to do it yourself, you have a 'Send Instructions' option. When clicked on, you simply need to  insert the email of a Developer, for instance, thus providing him your DNS records without granting access to the edit mode of your Site.
