Right after adding your site to MagicPress, your MagicPress panel will look like this.

For your site to be available to the public, you’ll need to configure your domain settings. Specifically, you’ll need to change the name servers on your domain registrar to the ones provided in the nameservers setup section of your MagicPress panel.

Clicking set up your nameservers will reveal the name servers you’ll need to enter for your domain.

Note that the values shown in the image above are only examples. You need to use the values provided in your MagicPress panel.

Then, you’ll need to visit your domain registrar, in this case DomainMonster, and perform the following steps.

  1. Log into your control panel.
  2. Select the domain you wish to modify from the right-hand menu, and click ‘Manage’.

  4. Fill out the name server fields with the name servers provided in the MagicPress panel shown above.
  5. Click ‘Update Name Servers’.

Note: Once you have made changes to your nameservers at the registrar, there will be 24-48 hours of DNS propagation during which your website may not be available.


Alternatively, you can direct your domain to MagicPress by creating an A record in the DNS settings of your domain registrar.

First, click set up your nameservers on your MagicPress panel.

This will reveal the data that needs to be entered in the A record.

Note that the values shown in the image above are only examples. You need to use the values provided in your MagicPress panel.
