Hi Webman,

Welcome to Synthasite! All you need to do is publish your newly created site, chose option 2 and follow these steps.

To configure a domain name you already own:

* Login to your chosen Domain Registrar (GoDaddy)
* Go to the DNS Management page
* Setup an A Record
* The IP address of your record must point to: "208.75.208.172"

OR

* Setup a CNAME
* Set your CNAME alias to: "hosting.synthasite.net".
E.g.www.mydomain.com = hosting.synthasite.net

This will only work if you are not assigning to the base of your
domain. I.e. domain.com will not work but www.domain.com will.

Please Note, it can take up to 48 hours (although usually less) for
these changes to take effect. Please contact your domain registrar
should you require any support relating to this.

The OR setup worked for me atleast I got away from godaddy telling me to enter a valid whatever. Time will tell is it really worked but thanks for the alternative because entering that number in the second field was not working for me.
