Custom Domains

Posted: 01/28/2020

Want to use your own domain name without using a Netlify subdomains? Netlify control panel allows us to do this! You must have already purchased a domain name from a registrar. I recommend google domains because you can purchase one with no hassle. To get started go to:

Overview > Domain Settings > Add Custom Domain > [Input your domain] > Verify > Yes Add Domain

You will need to create a DNS record that points to your Netlify Site. DNS records will be new to some so if you are stuck on this step email me. [email protected]

Example: blogcms CNAME blogcms.netlify.com.

Once that is complete you will want to redeploy your site to use the new url.
