How do you use your own domain name?

Postby kuurt » Mon Oct 24, 2016 6:43 pm

I'm starting to see why this is free - I can't figure out how to build a site on here. Seriously, are there no tutorials?
It doesn't look like anyone is getting any help on the forum either.

I want to use my own domain name, does anybody know how to do that?

Dear Kurt,

Yes, you may have one additional domain. You can configure it from cPanel >> Parked Domains. Then point the DNS to the server that your cpanel account is on.

My cpanel doesn't have a "parked domains". Are you sure I wouldn't go to "Addon Domains" instead?

If so should I add the www. to the beginning of my domain name in the new domain name field or not? And what should I put in the subdomain field?

Point your dain registar to the 5gbfree.com DNS servers. I think they are ns1.5gbfree.com and ns2, etc, etc.

Secondly, on add-on domains insert your domain name without the www I believe. After a couple of minutes it should work.

In case you want to have www.your domain.com you have to add that as a sub domain I think.
