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 eNom, and perform the following steps.

  1. Log into your eNom account and select the menu Domains. Then click My Domains.
    enom-domains-my-domains
  2. Click the domain name you wish to edit.
  3. From the Manage Domain drop-down menu, select DNS Server Settings.
  4. If not already selected, select Custom for Use our Name Servers?
    enom-change-nameservers
  5. Fill out the name server fields with the name servers provided in the MagicPress panel shown above.
  6. Click Save.
    • You may receive a pop-up warning stating “If you switch away from our nameservers, you will need to add host entries to your third party nameserver if you want to continue to use our provided services. See the Host Records section for this information.” If so, click on the OK button.

You will receive a confirmation indicating that your update was successful.

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.

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

  1. Log into your eNom account and select the menu Domains. Then click My Domains.
  2. Click the domain name you wish to edit.
  3. From the Manage Domain drop-down menu, select Host Records.
  4. Enter @ in the Host Name field, which corresponds to your domain. Insert the IP address provided in the MagicPress panel (shown above) in the Address field. In the Record Type drop-down menu, pick A (Address).
    enom-host-records
  5. Click Save to complete the process.

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