Domain Names

How do I use my existing domain name with the bookalet web builder?

Each domain name provider has their own unique interface, but the general requirement is that you update the DNS records of your domain and add or update your 'A' record to point to

Below is an example of what this looks like on GoDaddy:

This is telling the browser that www.[yourdomainname] should point to the bookalet IP address and this is the most basic configuration, you may have many other records for mail (Type MX) and others that you should not update without knowing the implications. 

Once this is done, add your domain name to the web builder by selecting the 'Domain Names' section on the left hand menu, then click on 'Add domain' and enter your domain name.

Please note:
Changing your 'A' records won't make your website appear immediately, it can take up to 48 hours for the changes to propogate around the Internet.

Also, if your domain name has an AAAA (IPv6) record, this must be deleted in order for the SSL certificate to work.
