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.

Once you’ve done this, simply follow these instructions:

Step 1 of 5

Start by logging in to your 123 Reg Control Panel.

 

Step 2 of 5

From there, select Domain Names within the ‘Manage active products’ section. Next, choose your domain name from the provided list and then select Manage.

Manage Domain Names

 

Step 3 of 5

On the next page, you’ll see the settings and billing options for your Website Builder plan. Simply click Change that appears opposite the Domain field.

Click Change

 

Step 4 of 5

Enter the domain name you wish to use into the provided field and select Confirm to finish this process.

Confirm change

 

Step 5 of 5

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: 35.172.94.1
  • @ A record: 100.24.208.97
