Hi all I will be pointing my webpage on synthasite from my domain name at telivo.
When I go to telivo name server change section I have the following;
Nameserver Change -
Nameserver 1
Nameserver 1 IP address
Nameserver 2
Nameserver 2 IP address

The name in both servers is telivo*****
Do I just change the the IP address to the one given by synthasite and leave the name of the server? And do I change both IP addresses or just 1?
Many thanks
Morgan

Hi Morgan,

We have a tutorial outlining the steps to configuring your domain, giving two popular domain name registrars as examples: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/p...
There are also instructions on how to use ZoneEdit if your domain name registrar does not provide you with domain name management. However, most domain name registrars can assist you with an A record, in which case you would not need to use a third party service like ZoneEdit.

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
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"

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. Feel free to forward any instructions you receive from them to us so that we can advise you further.

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. If you have any difficulty with this please let us know.

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!
