How to Set Up a Custom Domain

To set up a custom domain, first head to our partner  https://uniregistry.com/ to register your domain. If you already have a domain from another provider, you can still point it to us, but you might want to consider transferring your domain to Uniregistry so that we can provide you with the best support.

This will show you how to point your domain to us. You'll be able to do this by creating an  A record and adding 52.32.215.222 as the IP.

Check out this  video, or follow the steps below to set up your custom domain. Please note that the location of the URL settings have changed since this video. You can now find the URL settings at the gear icon in the top left

1.  Log in to your account at Uniregistry.com by clicking the ‘Log In/Sign Up’ button in the upper-right corner of the homepage.

3.  Click on the domain name you want to edit.

4.  Select the ‘NS/DNS Records’ tab.
