Bannersnack Enterprise

To set up a custom domain for your site you need to go trough a few simple steps. First of all you need to choose a custom domain name and register it with a DNS provider, after this is done you need to configure your DNS records.

See more detailed instructions below:

1. Pick a domain

Pick your custom domain and register it with a DNS provider. A DNS provider is a company that allows users to buy and register a unique domain name and connect that name to an IP (Internet Protocol) address by pointing your domain name to an IP address or a different domain name. A DNS provider is also called a domain registrar or DNS host.

2. Configure your DNS records

You can configure your DNS in two ways:

  1. Use DNS

    You need to change DNS settings with your domain name registrar.

    NOTE: Everything you serve through this domain will not work any longer (including emails, website, ftp & subdomains). To preserve nameservers, we recommend the CNAME method (a little bit more complicated though).

    Go to your domain name registrar - where you bought the domain name from - and look for something called "DNS settings". Change your current name servers with the following:

    NS1.BANNERSNACK.COM
    NS2.BANNERSNACK.COM

    Please allow at least 24 hours for the new DNS to propagate. If you have problems changing NS settings through your registrar's interface you could send them an email.

  2. Use CNAME

    You need to add a CNAME record with your domain name registrar.

    Create a CNAME record. Go to your domain name registrar - where you bought the domain name from - and look for something called "Add/Create CNAME". You need to add a "bannermaker" CNAME record that points to bannersnack domain name.

    CNAME (Alias): bannermaker
    Points to: bannersnack.com

    If you have problems changing NS settings through your registrar's interface you could send them an email.
