Domain mapping

  1. 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 www.mydomain.com), 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 mydomain.com), add an A record, setting the host to ‘@’ and pointing to XXX
