6. You will be returned to the previous screen where you can select your domain from the dropdown list.

Once you select the domain you will get the notification that your domain should point to a specific URL.

APPLY CHANGES TO YOUR DOMAIN

We've chosen CloudFlare service as our DNS provider .

You have another one if you've already bought a domain. But we'll show you an example on its base.

So you need to do the following:

1. Open your DNS settings and create a CNAME record on your entry that you want to send to us.

2. The CNAME should be the URL you see in Publish page dialog.

That's it! Now the domain is pointing to our server.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Please, note that changes of DNS server may take up to 24h to work as it should.

Why does it take up to 24 hours?

When you make a DNS change, it takes time for the changes to take effect. This is called DNS propagation. It is the time it takes for the domain DNS to refresh the cache on the network since the cache is cleared over a certain amount of time(up to 24hours) Unfortunately, we cannot speed up the propagation process.

Do you want to publish on your main (root) domain?

e.g. www.yourdomain.com
