Using your own domain name

When you first sign up for your Skizzar site, you will be given a domain name. However, it is easy for you to use your own domain name in place of this.

  1. From your dashboard, navigate to Tools > Domain Mapping

  2. In order to map your own domain name, you will need to change a setting within your domain name registrar. This process is slightly different for each registrar, however, the most popular registrars make it relatively easy to access your domain name settings.

    You will need to edit the DNS settings for your website and change the A record to point to

    If you are unsure of how to do this, contact either Skizzar support from your dashboard or contact your registrar support. Below is an example from 123-reg of the DNS settings required to map your domain name to Skizzar – please note, DNS changes can take up to 48 hours to propagate.

  3. Once your DNS changes have taken place, all you need to do is enter your domain name into the Map a new domain name box and click on Map Domain

You can use to check the current destination of your domain name and to know when it’s propagated. Changing DNS settings can be complicated, so if you’re not sure, give us a shout!
