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

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 ZONE FILE tab, you would need to first add the A (HOST) Record and second, the CNAME Record.

1. Click on the Add Record link.

2. In the ADD ZONE RECORD modal that appears, click on the down arrow for the Select Record… option.

Click on the FINISH button to add the CNAME Record.

Congratulations! You have now added the A Record and the CNAME Record and these will be activated in a time period of 4 hours. After that, all customers searching for myshop.com or www.myshop.com will reach your website automatically.

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.
