There are two ways that you can point your domain to your website: you can change the domain's DNS (Domain Name Server) information to that of your website or you can use our Domain Forwarding service.

CHANGE DNS
(Modify Domain Name Server & IP addresses)

For your domain name to work, it must be associated with a DNS (Domain Name Server). When you register your domain, default DNS (Domain Nameservers) settings are used(NS1.shopco.com, NS2.shopco.com). Your web hosting provider can give you their primary and secondary DNS information and you can change the default settings to those of your web host. The DNS information usually looks something like this:

Primary Hostname- ns1.examplehostname.com
Primary IP- 123.45.67.8
Secondary Hostname- ns2.examplehostname.com
Secondary IP- 123.45.67.9

To change DNS information

1. Click on "Domain Manager" and  Log in by entering your username and password
2. Beside the domain whose DNS you want to change, click DNS.
3. In the Name Servers section, replace the existing information with the information provided by your web hosting company (you may omit the IP addresses, as they are optional).
4. Click Save. Your new DNS information is automatically entered, if it is verified to be valid.

Please allow 24 - 48 hours for your change to propagate throughout the Internet.

Other DNS Services

Please note that when using a-records and/or cnames, you must be using our default name servers
(NS1.shopco.com, NS2.shopco.com) in order for those setting to work.

A-Records
Address Record. Maps a domain name (such as example.com) to a numeric address that computers recognize (10.45.54.231)

A (Address) records must have a valid IP Address in format x.x.x.x.

Anytime you are dealing with domains, you must have an A record.  You will need to have two records set up; one just a blank and then the IP Address,  the other -  an * and then the IP Address.

CNAME Record
Canonical Name Record. Allows you to create an alias for your domain. For example, you can make 'www.example.com' an alias for 'example.com' so that visitors can use either one to find your webpage.

CNAME records must have a VALID hostname only. You cannot use a URL such as members.angelfire.com/test/test.html. The valid hostname in the previous URL would simply be members.angelfire.com.

MX Record 
Mail Exchange Record. Ensures that email that is sent to you is routed to the correct destination

MX records must have either a valid IP or hostname. You may only have one MX record per domain. If you need to set your MX to point to another mailserver, use @ for the prefix and enter a valid hostname.

Name Server Management
(Add Edit and Delete Name Servers)

Name Server:  A computer server that maps domain names such as example.com to their IP address (10.45.54.231). The name servers are automatically set when you register a domain, but can also be provided by your web hosting service.

Default Name Servers (ns1.shopco.com, ns2.shopco.com).

Using the default shopco.com nameservers is not mandatory; however, if you configure your nameserver settings to point to another service provider, Domain Forwarding, Email Forwarding, and zone record services (which are provided through our servers) will not be available. Click on the link in the sentence  'Click here'  to restore the default nameservers.

Edit a name server currently listed.

  • Click on 'DNS' for your domain.

  • On the name servers page add, delete or change the name servers for your domain name.

Create a new name server.

You can create a nameserver that is based on your domain. You first have to create the new nameserver, and then you can add the new nameserver to the list of nameservers for your domain.

To create a custom nameserver, click on the 'Manage' tab and log into your account.  Then beside the domain for which you want to create a custom nameserver, click DNS.

      • Click the link at the bottom of the Name Servers section, in the sentence "If you would like to create custom nameservers based on your domain, click here."

      • The Edit Custom Nameservers window appears.

      • Click Add Record.

      • In the Subdomain field, enter the name of custom nameserver.

      • In the IP Address field, enter the corresponding IP address.

      • If you want to use the new nameserver with this domain, click the link at the bottom of the Custom Nameservers section, in the sentence If you would like to configure your domain to use these servers, click here.

      • The Edit DNS Settings page appears.

      • In the Name Servers section, click Add Name Server.

      • Enter the name of the custom nameserver that you just created.

      • Click Save.

DOMAIN FORWARDING
(Forward your domain to another web address)

Domain forwarding is a service that is available with your domain registration. It allows you to redirect visitors to another website (that you own) when they type your domain name in the browser address field. Please note:  you must be using our default name servers (NS1.shopco.com, NS2.shopco.com) in order for the domain forwarding to work.

There is an option in the orange text box of the name servers section of the DNS page to restore the default name servers "Click here to restore the default nameservers."  that you would use.

To set up domain forwarding
1. Click on "Domain Manager" and  Log in by entering your username and password.
2. Beside the domain that you want to redirect, click Domain Forwarding.
3. In the URL field, enter the address of the destination website.
You can specify the URL, for example, http://www.yourcompany.com/yourexamplesite.html, or you can specify the IP address, for example, http://12.34.56.789.
4. Click Enabled to implement domain forwarding.
5. If you do not want your website address to appear in the browser address field, select Masked from the drop-down list. When visitors type your domain name in the browser address field, they are sent to your website, but they still see your domain name in the address field. If you do want the website address (the destination) to be displayed in the address field, ensure that Masked is not selected.
6. Optionally, in the Title field, enter the text that you want to appear in the browser title bar.
7. Optionally, in the Description field, enter a short description of your website.
8. Optionally, in the Keywords field, enter some descriptive words that a visitor might use when searching for your website. Separate each word or phrase with a comma.
9. Click Save.

To remove domain forwarding
1. Click Manage, and log in to your account.
2. Beside the domain whose domain forwarding you want to remove, click Domain Forwarding.
3. Ensure that Enabled is not selected.
4. Optionally, in the URL field, delete the address of the destination website.
5. Click Save.
