If you are using your main url or a domain that you previously pointed elsewhere, you will want to EDIT the A record.
Examples of a main url:
myphotography.com or sallysweddings.com
If you do not want to point your entire domain to StickyFolios then you would want to create a new sub-domain (weddings.myphotography.com) - Creating A Subdomain A Record
Step 1 - Edit the A Record: (see below for specific providers)
- Log in to your Domain Services Provider
- Select Edit your DNS Settings
- Change the A Record to point to our IP
- The IP to use is: 188.8.131.52
Step 2- Update your Domain in the StickyFolios Builder:
- Log in to your Account
- Go to Account -- Your Domains
- Select the Add Custom Domain box next to Custom Domains
Note: Each host has different requirements for the domain setup. We have a list of the most common providers below.
If you have questions, please ask your DNS provider how to edit the A record for your domain. If creating a subdomain, ask how to create an A record subdomain.
Step 2: Update your Domain in the StickyFolios Builder
Step 3: Add the Domain to your Folio you can read more about customizing your domain with Paths
Directions for specific web hosts:
Note: some directions will show IP addresses as part of their sample. DO NOT USE those IP addresses.
If you are not sure how to update your domain, email your domain provider and ask them how to edit the A Record and point it to our domain.
Note for Bluehost: you cannot change these records if you are not hosting with them.
If you host your DNS with PhotoBiz, just give them a call or send in a ticket and let their support team know what the address needs to be (for example, app.yourwebsite.com) and where it needs to be pointed ( 184.108.40.206 )
