Connecting your domain from Wordpress

Important: Before you can connect a domain, your site must be upgraded to a Premium Plan.

Once you upgrade to any one of our Premium Plans, you can connect a domain that you've purchased elsewhere to your Bookmark website.

To connect your Wordpress domain, you will need to sign in to your Wordpress account update your DNS records.

There are two hostnames you need to re-direct:

  1. Hostname: @

    • Record Type - A Record

    • Point to Bookmark IP Address -

  2. Hostname: WWW

    • Record Type - CNAME

    • Point to Name Server -

If you are not tech savvy, here is an email script you can send to the Wordpress support team with these instructions:



I would like your assistance with a change to my domain details with your service.

I would like to point my domain to a website I’ve made at (a website builder). This means I need to change my A-Record to point to the IP address for my root domain which is and the CNAME www to point to

Could you please change the A-records for:

A Record to point to
CNAME record for WWW to point to NS.BOOKMARK.COM

This is not a request to transfer; I want to keep you as my domain registrar.
Thank you so much!
