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 GoDaddy
Go to the GoDaddy website and click the "Sign In" link at the top of the page.
Once logged in, you should be greeted with the domains you own, on the domain you want to use with your Fabrik site click the DNS button
If this is a domain you currently use you may have a few records already configured. In any case, the ones we are interested in are:
DNS Entry Type Example URL
@ A yourdomain.com
www A/CNAME www.yourdomain.com
Change the "@" A (Host) record to Fabrik's IP address 188.8.131.52 by clicking the Edit button next to the DNS entry:
If you have "www" configured as a A (Host) record then you should update it with the same IP Address. Otherwise it will likely be configured as a CNAME (Alias) in which case you do not need to do anything, so you should have:
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.
