Custom domain names are supported by Lite and Pro plans only.
Using a Custom Domain name with your clickbooq website involves a couple easy changes to your domain’s DNS records.
Note: In order to make these DNS changes, your domain must be set to use the default nameservers of your registrar. If you currently have website hosting through another provider and wish to keep it for your domain, stop this procedure, then contact your hosting provider to make the necessary A-record changes for your domain as reverting to the default nameservers will terminate any 3rd party hosting services for your domain once they are changed.
1. Log into your Bluehost account, then click the "Manage" button for the domain you want to use for your clickbooq website:
2. In the A (Host) section of your Zone file, click the Edit icon next to the '@' record our server IP address 126.96.36.199 and click Save:
3. Now, set the 'www' CNAME record to point to 'sites.clickbooq.com' (double-check the spelling! that is a 'Q' at the end!) and click Save.
4. Log into the Toolbox at https://app.clickbooq.com and click the Settings tab. Enter your custom domain name without the 'http://', i.e. "www.yourdomain.com". Click the Update button when you are finished.
5. Your website is now using your custom domain. Please allow 24 hours for the DNS changes to propagate throughout the Internet, after which time it will resolve to our servers and your new clickbooq website. Congratulations!
