You need to follow the below mentioned steps.

1. Access your DNS settings.
2. Delete any existing records
3. Add records

1. Access your DNS settings

To access your DNS settings, you will have to first go to your domain provider’s website, and log into your account.

1. Enter https://in.godaddy.com in your browser, and click on the Sign In button.

2. Click on Sign In under Registered Users.

3. Enter your username and password and click on Sign In.

4. On successful login, the following page will be displayed.

5. Under Domains section, click on the Manage button.

6. Now click on DNS >> Manage Zones.

7. Enter your domain name and click on Search.

8. Your Domain details (DNS Management) page gets displayed along with its records.

2. Delete any existing records

Once you are on the DNS Management page, you would need to delete any existing A Records already present for your domain name.

1. Next to A Records, click on 

2. Click on Delete .

3. From the confirmation modal window, click on Delete.

Your existing A Records gets deleted.


Note
Follow these steps for all records present for your domain name, until there are no records present.

3. Add records

For customers to reach your website, you would have to direct each of them to your account’s IP address. For this, you would need to add two records. Once you have deleted all existing records in the DNS Management page, you would need to first add A (Host) Record and then CNAME Record.

1. Click on the ADD.

2. From the list of options, select the A (Host) option.

3. In the blank fields, perform the following actions and then click on Save.

  • Enter @ in the Host field.
  • Enter 103.20.127.61 in the Points to field.
  • Select 1/2 Hour in the TTL dropdown.

 

You have successfully added the A (Host) Record.

4. Now to Add CNAME Record, again click on ADD.

5. From the list of options, select the CNAME option.

6. In the blank fields, perform the following actions and then click on Save.

  • Enter www in the Host field.
  • Enter @ in the Points to field.
  • Select 1/2 Hour in the TTL dropdown.

 

You have successfully added the CNAME Record.

Congratulations! You have now added the A (Host) Record and the CNAME Record and these will be activated in a time period of 4 hours. After that, all customers will reach your website automatically upon searching on Google.

On successful addition of the domain name, and the configuration, your customers can now visit your web store at the new URL. Also, the next time you click on the Online Store option from the left menu, you will be taken to your web store on this new URL.


Business Emails
Once your domain has been registered, you can also purchase email accounts for your store. These emails can be used for notifications purposes, communications and feedback from your customers, communication to/between staff members, and other purposes.
