INFO: Should your domain be with another registrar you would need to add DNS records to point your domain to your Website Builder package:

  1. Login to your domain provider’s control panel. Find the domain you want to map, and go to the DNS settings page.
  2. If you want to point the www subdomain to your website (for example www.mydomain.com), add a CNAME record, setting the host to ‘www’ and pointing to sitebuilder.1-grid.com
  3. If you want to point the naked domain to your website (for example mydomain.com), add an A record, setting the host to ‘@’ and pointing to 41.185.63.10
