Domain name linking is for users who have a domain name registered elsewhere and want to use that domain for their Webador site. While linking is an option, we recommend transferring domain names to Webador to avoid paying double the costs. Both our Pro and Business plans come with a free domain name.
⚠ Warning: If you choose to link a domain name, you will be responsible for setting up any mailboxes on the linked domain. Webador can only provide mailboxes for domains that are transferred to us.
You'll need a Webador Pro or Business plan to be able to link a domain name.
You can link your domain name to Webador and activate it yourself.
1. Link domain name to our server
Follow the steps below to link your domain name to Webador's servers.
Log into the website of the provider your domain name is registered with.
Go to the page where DNS settings are managed (also known as 'DNS management') and find the option to change the A-records (NOT the name servers).Step 3
Change the following A-records so that they link to 188.8.131.52 (the IP address of our servers):
|www.yourwebsite.com OR www||A||184.108.40.206|
Warning: We do not use IPv6, so make sure all AAAA DNS rules are deleted.
2. Activate link
Follow the steps below to activate the link to your domain name.
In the Editor, click on the Webador logo in the top left corner.
Click on My subscription.
Under Domain names, click on Register domain.
Enter the domain name you have just linked and click on the blue Check availability button.
You will then be asked if you'd like to enter a transfer code. Click on I want to link the domain name via DNS.
You will now see an overview of the required DNS settings. If these settings are correct, click on the green Check link button. Your website should be active immediately!
After following these steps, your domain name will be linked to your website.
