Redirecting your domain from Domain.com


 

Before we start: If you don’t yet have a domain for your Bookmark website and you were thinking about registering one from Domain.com and then redirecting it to Bookmark, hold on a second! Did you know you can register a new domain directly through Bookmark, and save yourself some hassle? Check out Registering a domain through Bookmark for details.

 

If you already have a domain registered at Domain.com and wish to use it for your Bookmark.com website, you can point your domain to Bookmark.com by following these steps:


 

Step 1: Log in to your Domain.com account

Open a new browser tab (so you can follow along with this guide), and login to your account at Domain.com.
 

 


 

 

Step 2: Click on Domain Central

You should be on the Control Panel page. Scroll down until you see the Domain section, and then click on Domain Central.

 

 

 

Step 3: Click the domain name

On the Domain Central page, scroll down to your list of domains, and click directly on the domain name of the domain you want to redirect to Bookmark.


 

 


Step 4: Click the DNS tab

When you click on the domain name, a menu bar will appear below it. Click the tab: DNS.

 

 

Step 5: Select Edit A Records

When you click the DNS Tab, a drop-down menu called Modify: appears. Click the down-arrow to reveal the drop-down menu.
 

 

 

 

From the drop-down menu, select A Record.
 

 

 

 

Step 6: Change the IP Addresses for * and www

You will probably see a long list of records, under a heading like this:
 

 


We only need to change two of them. The two records we need to change are for the Hosts:

  • *

  • www

 

The change we need to make is to change the IP address in the Points to: column to Bookmark’s IP Address, which is 75.126.149.187.

 

Scroll down the list to find the record for * and click the drop-down arrow at the far right under Action, and choose Edit.

 

This will allow you to type in the IP address box. Type in 75.126.149.187 as shown below.

 

 

Then scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save.

 

 

Repeat this process for the record for www. If you don’t see any www record, you can add it at the bottom of the page.

 

Type www in the first box, type 75.126.149.187 in the second box, then click the Add button.
 

 

 

 

Step 6: Check the Changes

Take one final check that Bookmark’s IP Address is correctly entered in the Points to: column for Hosts * and www.
 

 


 

That’s it! Remember to log out of your Domain.com account before leaving their website. It might take Domain.com up to 24 hours to make the changes, so please be patient.

 

And thanks for choosing Bookmark.com to build your beautiful website!
