Hi superjo3y23

This is something you would need to do only if you are hosting your site somewhere else. Are you doing this? If so you should be able to send those instructions to your hosting service and they would do it for you.

Please let me know where you wish to host your site. Hosting with SynthaSite is a lot more straightforward!

In this case you do not need to host your site somewhere else. You can publish your site to your own domain and still host it with us for free.

Here is a really useful tutorial outlining the steps to getting your own domain:

http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/p...

If you have not done so already you need to purchase your domain name from a domain name registrar such as GoDaddy.com or Register.com.

Then you need to:

1. Log in to your chosen domain registrar (eg. GoDaddy.com, Register.com)
2. Go to the DNS Management page.
3. Set up an A Record
4. The IP address of your record must point to: "208.75.208.172"
5. Open your site in SynthaSite and publish it to your domain, using the second option in the publishing dialog box.

Please note that it can take up to 48 hours (although usually less) for these changes to take effect and you need to contact your domain registrar if you need help in that regard.

Get back to me if any of this unclear to you.
