Hi asshu,

To point your domain to SynthaSite, you need to edit the A Record:-

These are general instructions on how to configure your domain to point to SynthaSite. If you require specific help with the interface of your domain name registrar, please contact them for support.

How to configure a domain name you already own:
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. 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.

If your domain registrar does not provide you with any DNS management, you can use ZoneEdit. We have a tutorial that explains the steps: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/p...

Once you have configured your DNS settings, click the yellow "Publish My Site" button in SynthaSite. Click on the blue link at the bottom of the dialog box that says "Already Own a Domain?" Fill in your domain name and follow the prompts to publish your site.

Once your site is published to your domain the hard part is over and you will be able to edit your site and then update it with a single click!
