How to configure created website on your own domain


If you have your own domain, you can run your Aircus website on it for free.

Here is how to do it, you need to do two things.

1. Configure your domain DNS server

Every domain seller, have an online console, where you can change your DNS settings.
Set your domain CNAME record to point to fort1.aircus.com. Also you can set up naked domain A record to point to 46.137.75.231.
Than wait about 3 hours to let DNS server propagate the change.

Example: 
You own a domain tobigames.com
Configure tobigames.com A record to point to IP address 46.137.75.231
Configure www.tobigames.com CNAME record to point to fort1.aircus.com.


2. Configure your domain in Aircus

Click on Settings -> Domain
Select "your own domain" and write your domain name into the text area (in our example www.tobigames.com).
Click on the button set domain.

Domain configuration screen
Now your created website will run on your own domain.
