Connect domain with Sitemagic Cloud
Contrary to other hosted website builders, Sitemagic Cloud lets you connect your own domain free of charge.
I want to connect an existing domain
If you already own a domain, you will need to contact your domain registrar (the company where you bought your domain name) and ask them to point the domain to our platform.
You might have e-mail hosting associated with your domain - in this case you should ask your registrar to create a so-called "A record" pointing to our IP address.
If you only use your domain for a website (or don't use it yet) then ask them to change the Name Servers of your domain to our Name Servers.
Here is the information you need:
Name Servers (move domain):
IP address (pointing using an A record):
Important: Before asking your domain registrar to move your domain, make sure you connect the domain in Sitemagic Cloud (see Connect domain). Your domain registrar might not be able to move your domain if it is not associated with our services first.
I want to buy a new domain to connect
If you don't have a domain yet, please follow this guide to buy a new domain
. In this case you will not have to contacting your registrar to change anything. The domain will be ready for Sitemagic Cloud out-of-the-box.
Once you own a domain and has decided to use it with Sitemagic Cloud you should connect it immediately. Moving an existing domain is often not possible until the domain is associated with our services.
All you need to do is log in
to Sitemagic CMS and navigate to Admin > Cloud Account
Click the Connect link. The Cloud Manager will ask you for your domain name. Enter the domain name (e.g. company.com) and press OK to proceed.
That's all. You will receive an e-mail once the domain is fully connected, which happens when the domain is either pointed to our IP address, or when the domain has been moved to - or registered with - our Name Servers. It can take somewhere between a couple of minutes to hours or even days so please be patient. Sitemagic Cloud tries to connect the domain 4 times every hour.
