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.

Go to the Gandi site and click the "Log In" link at the top of the page. Once logged in, click the Domains tab on the left hand side of the page to see your domains.

On the domains page click the domain you want to use with your Fabrik site. On the next page click the DNS Records tab in the left hand side. 

You need to update the following DNS records:

DNS Entry    Type        Example URL
@            A           yourdomain.com
www          CNAME       www.yourdomain.com

Change the value of the @ record to Fabrik's IP address and the www record to the value @. After making the updates your DNS records should look similar to this:

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.
