Here's a more in-depth guide into configuring your DNS settings as part of setting up your custom domain. In this guide, we'll show you how it works with Godaddy's DNS manager. If you're using a different DNS manager, the steps might be slightly different.

How to Configure your DNS Settings

After purchasing your custom domain name through GoDaddy, here’s how to set up your DNS to point to your new Propopen website:

First, Copy your IP Address from Propopen

Go to propopen.com and login to your account.
Once logged in, click on “Setting” on the left-hand menu, and click on the “Custom Domains” tab.
Under the “Custom Domain” section, input your custom URL (don’t include the “www”)
Copy the IP address (you’ll need this IP address later for your DNS settings)

Login to your Godaddy Account

Go to godaddy.com and login to your account

Click on the DNS button next to your Custom Domain

After logging in to GoDaddy, you should see a list of your purchased domains.
Click the “DNS” button next to your domain name to manage your DNS settings.
This should bring you to the DNS manager for your custom domain.

Add or Edit the "A Record"

In the DNS manager, if you already see an A Record there, you’ll need to "Edit" this A Record.
If there’s no A Record there, you’ll need to Add a new A Record by clicking “Add” on the bottom.
First, add the "@" A Record by filing out the form with these values:
Host/Name: @
Points To/Value: (paste the Propopen IP address you copied in previous Step)
TTL/Time to Live: 1 hour
Second, add the "www" A Record by filing out the form with these values:
Host/Name: www
Points To/Value: (paste the Propopen IP address you copied in previous Step)
TTL/Time to Live: 1 hour

You're all done!

That’s it. Now wait about 1 hour, and go back to Propopen > Settings > Custom Domains
Under "Domain", click "Check Site Status" to make sure you've setup everything correctly!
If so, your Propopen website should now be working at your custom URL, so go check it out!
