1. Add your domain to your Fabrik site
Important: Link your domain within the Fabrik dashboard first. To do this, log in to Fabrik and go to Settings > Domains and link your domain.
Make sure both the root (non-www) and www versions of your domain are added. This way it doesn't matter which URL someone enters, they'll still end up at your Fabrik site.
2. Choose your primary domain
Every Fabrik website has a primary domain/URL. If someone navigates to a non-primary domain we redirect them to your primary domain. What you choose is up to you - personally we favour the non-www version (e.g. yourdomain.com) because it is shorter and looks nicer in the address bar.
3. Link from UK2
Go to the UK2 website, log in. Once logged in, you should see your domain listed.
Tap the link to find the DNS link in the header of the next page. At the bottom of the nameservers page you'll find your Advanced Options. Tap Show Advanced DNS Options.
Find your A Records and add or change both the root and www records to point to Fabrik's IP address 188.8.131.52
Make sure you don't have any AAAA Records or other forwarding set up by mistake, or from the settings for a previous site.
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.
