This tutorial will guide you on how to properly setup your domain on Domain.com.
*You may find your registrar’s support team asking for an “IP Address” to attach the domain name. We use a cname record to attach domain names because using IP Addresses means a systems servers must remain the same and ours do not and flux with incoming traffic and other updates. To ensure domain names always work, please use a cname to attach the domain to your site.
*If you have a custom email, this process will likely disconnect the email. Please be sure to check with your registrar to ensure it continues to work after this update.
