Recommended: Connect domain by pointing to our Domain Name Servers
To use your existing domain name with your FASO site, you can point it.
IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT A DOMAIN EMAIL:
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.
To use your existing domain:
The instructions will include the following:
Login to your domain account at the company where you registered your domain - your domain registrar (GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc).
Change the DOMAIN NAME SERVERS (DNS) to our nameservers:
AFTER you update the nameservers, your off-site domain should begin working with your FASO account within about 12 hours.
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 current 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:

If your registrar is asking for an IP address instead of wanting to change name servers, please see this FAQ:
