How to connect a domain to your site

To connect an existing domain:

  1. Hover over PUBLISH (right hand corner of the editor page)
  2. Click ‘connect an existing domain
  3. Enter your domain (only the domain – yourdomain.com – not http:// or https:// or www.) 
  4. Connecting your existing domain also requires changing the DNS Records in your registrar so that the domain will point to our servers and to your new site.

To connect your domain to our servers:

  1. Log in to your registrar account: The registrar is where you originally purchased the domain. If you use a managed hosting company, copy and paste these instructions and forward to them to implement the changes for you.
  2. Locate the Domain Manager of your domain in your registrar account: The control panel allows you to change the DNS records from the default ones provided by the registrar.  Different registrars may have different control panel layouts and other names for it as well. You might find it under ‘DNS Manager’ or ‘Domain Manager”.
  3. In your registrar’s Control Panel, change the A record and the CNAME:
    1. Add an empty (@) A record, with the value of
    2. Add a ‘www’ CNAME, with the value of im-router-service.com
    3. (If there are previous A records in your DNS settings – make sure to delete them).


A record – Host –> @ (empty) points to –>

CNAME – Host –> WWW points to –> im-router-service.com
