Connect a domain you already own to your TypeStack account by changing the CNAME or A records. Through this connection method, TypeStack hosts your account in your own domain, while your domain remains registered with its current host.

In most cases, we recommend connecting via A records. However, you can also connect using your CNAME records pointing to the below-mentioned details.

Step 1: Update the A or CNAME Records in Your Domain Host Account.

             1. Log into Your Domain Host.

            2. Find Your Domain Settings Page.

            3. Find Your DNS Settings or Manage DNS Records.

            4. Replace Your DNS Records.

Step 2: Add The Domain to Your TypeStack account.

Step 3: Wait For Your Domain To Propagate

Step 1: Update the A or CNAME Records in Your Domain Host Account

To connect your domain, you must update your domain’s A records or CNAME in your domain host account (usually the company you bought your domain from).  

You will see a step-by-step outline below, which will help you to go through the steps to change the name servers in your domain’s current host account. 

The below steps will tell you everything you need to know, including the A or CNAME records you should use.

1. Log into Your Domain Host.

  • Open a new tab in your browser.
  • Go to your domain host’s site and log in.

2. Find Your Domain Settings Page.

  • Go to the Domains page on your domain host’s site.
  • Find your domain and go to the settings panel.

3. Find Your DNS Settings or Manage DNS Records

  • In your domain settings, find the area where you manage or edit DNS records.

4. Replace Your DNS Records.

Option 1- Using ‘A’ Records

  • On your domain host's site, create or map your current A record with one of the lP addresses mentioned below:

          > 65.1.212.223.

          > 15.207.212.132

  • While mapping your A record, it should have the following values in the respective fields

Choice 1

TypeNamevalueTTL
A@65.1.212.2231 Hour

Choice 2

TypeNameValueTTL
A65.1.212.2231 Hour
  • Please note that TTL should be as minimum as your domain host provider can offer
  • Please note that there shouldn't be other A records in your settings with @  pointing to any other records, if there are, please delete them.

Option 2- Using CNAME Record

  • Choose this option only if you want to connect a sub-domain (like www.mydomain.com, shop.mydomain.com, store.mydomain.com etc.) instead of the root domain
  • On your domain host's site, create or map your CNAME record with below:
  • connect.mywindo.shop
  • While mapping your CNAME record, it should have the following values in the respective fields
  • If you want to connect your root domain, one option is as below
TypeNameValueTTL
CNAME?1 Hour
  • If you want to connect your root domain, another option is as below:
TypeNameValueTTL
CNAME@?1 Hour
  • If you want to connect your subdomain, one option is as below:
TypeNameValueTTL
CNAME<yoursubdomainprefix>?1 Hour

Please note that <your sub-domain pre-fix> should be replaced with your actual sub-domain name like shop or store etc.,
