Before Mapping your Domain:
If you are importing an existing WordPress site, please read our import instructions.
You need to do your import BEFORE pointing your domain.
To use a custom domain, you will need to contact your domain registrar or current host.
Each operates differently and most will simply set this up for you so do not worry about understanding the terms or how to go about doing this. Just contact the registrar’s support team and have this page ready to read to them.
To use a top-level-domain ( mydomain.com )…
- You will need to setup a DNS setting with your domain registrar for an “A Record” that points to our IP address.
- Simply tell the support at your registrar: "I need an A Record for “http://mydomain.com” pointing to '126.96.36.199' "
To use a “subdomain” ( blog.mydomain.com )
- You need to create a “CNAME record” pointing to the blog address you chose.
- Tell your registrar: "I need a CNAME for “blog.mydomain.com” pointing to “myblog.photographyblogsites.com” "
How do I know it worked?
After all of this is done, it may take up to 24-48 hours or more for the change to take place. If your custom url is pointing toward our main site http://photographyblogsites.com/ then it is working.
The last step is to login to your BlogSite and add your custom url under Tools -> Domain Mapping.
Just note that when you add your domain you do not add any www before it or any "/" or other character after it, just "domain.com".
