Point Your Existing Domain Name via FASO DNS

Recommended: Connect domain by pointing to our Domain Name Servers

If you are currently receiving email at your domain name (such as [email protected]), before changing your nameservers be sure to review your options in our FAQ:
How do I use my existing domain if I currently have email on that domain? 

Please do not change the name servers if you have a domain email. Changing the name servers will interrupt your domain email. Let us know so we can address what is needed to be sure your domain email continues to function whether you will be using FASO or keeping the email account with your current non-FASO host.

POINT your Existing Domain to your FASO Website

  • from FASO Control Panel
  • click Manage Your Domains (left-hand column, low on screen)
  • click Use a domain that you already own
  • enter your domain name
  • click Submit
  • follow the instructions

AFTER you update the nameservers, your off-site domain should begin working with your FASO account within about 12 hours.

NOTE: The above steps are recommended prior to transferring a domain to FASO.

Using your existing domain in this way, you will still be liable for your annual renewal fees with your current domain registrar.

Although this is the quick way to use your existing domain, we recommend that you transfer your domain to FASO. Many members enjoy having everything under one roof. Plus, all website plans include 1 domain.

Note - these instructions will make your domain point to your FASO website. This will NOT make FASO your domain registrar. If you wish for FASO to become your domain registrar, review our FAQ:
How do I transfer my domain to FASO?
