How do I point my domain name to my Website Builder package?
This article will explain how you can point your domain name to your Website Builder or Online Shop package.
Before you get started, you’ll first need to ensure your domain is pointed to the 123 Reg nameservers. Otherwise, any configurations you’ve made to the DNS through our Control Panel will not take effect.
You will need to set your DNS at your nameserver provider. For more information on how to do this, please view the following article: How do I change the nameservers for my domain name?
Please note: it will take between 24-48 hours for any new nameserver changes to become active.
You will not be able to assign external domains (i.e. domains registered with another provider) to our Website Builder or Online Shop package.
Once you’ve done this, select your version of Website Builder from the list below and follow the instructions provided to get started:
If you’re not sure which version of Website Builder you have, you can find out by reading this article.
Start by logging in to your 123 Reg Control Panel.
From there, select Website Builder within the ‘All Products and Services’ section and then select Manage opposite for the website you wish to edit.
You will now be taken to your website’s dashboard. From here, click Edit Website.
On the next page, select Settings in the top-right corner.
Click Manage opposite your domain name.
A pop-up window will now appear, where you can choose which type of domain you want to use.
If you already have your domain name, click On a domain I already own, followed by Continue.
Enter the domain name you wish to use into the provided field and select Confirm to save your choice. Alternatively, click Use a domain in my account and then choose which domain you want to use from the provided list.
Start by logging in to your legacy Control Panel. For details on how to do this, please read the following article: How do I access and manage my products?
From there, select Website Builder within the ‘Manage Active Products’ section and then select Manage opposite Manage websites.
On the next page, you’ll see all the Website Builder packages that you’ve purchased.
Select Options for the package you wish to update, followed by Billing from the drop-down menu.
On the next page, you’ll see the settings and billing options for your Website Builder plan. Simply click Change opposite the Domain field.
Enter the domain name you wish to use into the provided field and select Confirm to save your choice.
You will now see a confirmation message informing you that the domain name associated with your Website Builder package has been updated.
You won’t need to do anything else as we will automatically update your domain’s DNS records to incorporate the following details:
- www CNAME record: 123reg.multiscreensite.com
- @ A record: 184.108.40.206
- @ A record: 220.127.116.11
