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.

You can point your domain name to your Website Builder or Online Shop package, so that your visitors can view your newly created website, using two separate processes:

Firstly, you’ll need to ensure your domain is pointed to the 123 Reg nameservers. Otherwise, you will not be able to configure the DNS zonefile.

Please note: it will take between 24-48 hours for any new nameserver (DNS) records to become active. For more information on changing your DNS records, please view the following article: How do I change the nameservers for my domain name?
