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

You need to change both of these records to point to Fabrik's IP address Next to each of the above records click the pencil icon and update the "Destination/Target" with the new address.

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.
