Redirecting a domain to WebSelf

With your new WebSelf website, you have the convenience to continue using a domain that you already own.

Redirecting a domain name allows you to maintain your current URL address, while forwarding users to WebSelf site.

With WebSelf, you can create a DNS redirect (Domain Name Server) while keeping your domain name with your current host. By using our DNS records in your existing domain settings, visitors will be forwarded to your WebSelf site.

To set up a domain redirect in your Individual Control Panel, click on "Manage":

  1. Click on Domains, then on "Do you already own a domain name?”;
  2. Click on “Connect it to WebSelf”;
  3. Enter the domain name that you'd like to redirect to WebSelf and the associated site name if applicable.

IMPORTANT: When you specify the domain name, do not enter the "www" portion of your URL. For example, if your address is ‘www.mysite.fr’, only enter ‘mysite’. Remember to specify your extension (e.g. .com, .net, .org, .ca, .fr, etc.).

  1. Login your domain registrar's interface. In the  DNS management, indicate WebSelf DNS values:

                               ns1.webself.net
                               ns2.webself.net

If you have email accounts linked to the domain name, please send us the "MX Records" to ensure the proper function of your email addresses.

Normally, it takes a period of 24 hours for the changes to take effect.

Note:

Please note that the Domain feature is only available to customers with a premium plan subscription. To learn more about WebSelf Premium Plans, click here.
