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 Register.com, and perform the following steps.

  1. Log in to your Register.com account.
    register-manage-account
  2. In the Account Dashboard, choose Domains
    register-dashboard
    then click Manage on the left of your screen.
    register-domains-manage
  3. Select the domain you wish to configure from the list and click Manage.
    register-choose-domain
  4. Fill out the name server fields with the name servers provided in the MagicPress panel shown above.
    register-change-nameservers
  5. Click Continue when you have finished making changes.

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 Register.com, and perform the following steps.

  1. Log in to your Register.com account.
  2. In the Account Dashboard, choose Domains, then click Manage on the left side of your screen.
  3. Select the domain you wish to configure from the list and click Manage.
  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and under Advanced Technical Settings click Edit IP Address Records.
    register-edit-ip-address
  5. Leave the left text box, that corresponds to your domain, blank. Fill out the right text box with the IP address provided in the MagicPress panel (shown above).
    register-change-a-record
  6. Click Continue when you have finished making changes.

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.
