Domain Name Registrar - pointing instructions

Helpful tips when you need to point your domain name to your VEVS website

Many of our clients already have a domain name when they find our Website products and decide to start using our services and this help article is for the customers who already own a domain name only, if you do not have a domain name yet or would like to purchase a new one for your website - you can do so by following the appropriate steps after 

Once you subscribe to one of our available website plans and become a client and decide to link your website to your own domain name - you will be provided with the instructions regarding pointing your domain name to our website server via one of two available methods depending on whether you currently use or plan to use a third-party email provider of your own choice or if you will be using VEVS as your email provider for the emails of the type "mailto:email@yourdomain.com"

The available methods are the following:

  • Pointing your NS records for the domain name to the VEVS NS server (if you will use VEVS as your email provider for the domain name).
  • Pointing only the A records of your domain name to the VEVS server IP address (if you will use a third-party email provider).

The specific instructions about the NS server names or the IP address will be provided after you become a subscribed client.

In the article below - we will provide you with the instructions on how to make the appropriate changes to your domain name settings if you use one of the most popular Domain Name Registrar companies.

 IMPORTANT:Note that before you proceed - you need to be a subscribed client for one of our website subscription plans as we provide the required domain name IP address and NS server pointing instructions only to already subscribed clients.
Also, if you are not sure how to proceed and set the provided settings on your own - it will be recommended to contact the support team of your Domain Name Registrar for further instructions.

Be aware that if you already have any A records set for the root domain name (in some cases it would be listed as @) and for the ‘www’ record - you may need to delete them first before setting up the A records provided by VEVS. If there is a CNAME record set for the ‘www’ you may need to also delete it first or properly set the CNAME to redirect the ‘www’ record to the root domain.
