Redirecting your domain from Network Solutions


Before we start: If you don’t yet have a domain for your Bookmark website and you were thinking about registering one from Network Solutions 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 Network Solutions 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 Network Solutions account

Open a new browser tab (so you can follow along with this guide), and login to your account at Network Solutions. When logging in, select Manage my Domain Names in the drop-down menu for Log into:

 

 

 

 

Step 2: Change where the Domain Points

You should be on the Domain Names page. If not, see if there is a Domain Names tab on the navigation menu at the top of the page.

 

Find the section “Manage [yourdomain.com]” for the domain that you want to use on Bookmark and click the handy button “Change Where Domain Points”. Alternatively, you can click the link to “Edit Advanced DNS Records”

 

 

Step 3: Domain name pointing options

Choose Advanced DNS from the Domain Name Pointing Options list and then click Continue.

 

 

 

Step 4: Edit A Records

The first record type in the list of records is the one we want to edit: IP Address (A Records). Click the button to Edit A Records

 

 


Step 5: Change the IP Address

We’ve made it to the important part! In the Add/Edit IP Address (A Records) area, we need to change the existing IP address to Bookmark’s IP Address, which is 75.126.149.187. You will need to change the IP address for www and for * (All Others).

 

In the Numeric IP Address column, enter 75.126.149.187 in the row for www and enter it again in the row for * (All Others).

 

 

You might want to double-check that you typed the IP Address correctly. And don’t omit any of the periods!

 

When you’re finished, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click Continue.

 

 

Step 6: Save the Changes

Take one final check that Bookmark’s IP Address is correctly entered, and then click Save Changes.
 

 

 


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

 

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