Step 1 : Know Your Domain
This is typically the hardest step for most. You have to pick what you want your website to be called. With almost 124 million .com domains taken, finding the right one can be difficult. Luckily if your .com doesn’t exist you can always register a .io, .co or many of the other available domains.
You can use our domain search during registration to check if the domain you want is available. Whether you have your domain purchased with WP.land or not, you will need to set your domain to work with your WP.land Site.
Step 2 : Setting Your Nameserver
If you’ve purchased your domain with WP.land then you can skip to Step 3.
If not, be sure your DNS Records are set to our Nameservers. You can do that by logging in to your DNS provider and changing the Nameservers to:
If your DNS provider only has a place for 2 nameservers, that’s ok. Just use the first 2 provided.
Step 3 : Setting Your Domain
Now that you’re ready to set your custom domain click on “Domains” then click “Add Domain”. Select whether you would like to purchase a new domain or set up an existing outside domain and input the domain name you would like to add without the “http://” or “www” (ie: domain.com).
When the domain is added you will see it in the list of domains. You can add more than one domain to any site, so grab your domain and get started building your website!
