Go to the 123-Reg website and click the "Control Panel" link at the top of the page. Once logged in, select your domain name and click "Manage":
On the domain management page, under "Advanced domain settings" click "Manage DNS”:
Click the "Advanced DNS" tab to view the DNS records for your domain. If this is a newly registered domain you will likely see the following default records in place (these just point to the 123-Reg holding page):
If this is an existing domain you may have a few other records in there. In any case, the ones we are interested in are:
DNS Entry Type Example URL
@ A yourdomain.com
www A www.yourdomain.com

Once done, you should see the following updated records:
The final step is to link your domain in the Fabrik dashboard.
The Internet is a big place!
DNS records are replicated all over the internet so any changes you make can often take up to 48 hours to propagate. If after a few hours your domain still goes to the old location, please be patient and wait a bit longer. If you want absolute confirmation that you've set everything up correctly you can use Dig Web Interface.
