Connect domain from Bluehost

To connect your domain name registered on Bluehost, follow these steps:

1. Go to Bluehost website and click on Login button on right top. Enter your username and password to signin in your account.


2. Click on Zone editor tab under Domain section. You would see all your purchased domains here. Now find your domain that you want to connect Pixpa website and select.


3. Here you would see all the DNS records. You need to create a www CNAME record.

Enter www (as Host Record), 14400 (as TTL), CNAME (as Type), domains.pixpa.com (as Points to) and click on Add Record tab.

Do not replace the CNAME value with your domain name. Points to value would be “domains.pixpa.com” as it is.

 


5. Now you need to add a domain redirect. Click on Redirect tab under domain section. Select Permanent (301) and select your domain.

Example: If  your domain name is “amrishmugal.in” then type “http://www.amrishmudgal.in” in the redirects to field as shown below.


Now, Make a Go Live Request in the Studio

Once you have completed the above steps, you can then submit a Go Live request now.

Click on avatar icon on black sidebar to go to settings section. In the Settings section, go to the Connect Domain Name page and enter your domain name with “http://www” prefix as http://www.amrishmudgal.in

Here amrishmudgal.in domain name is an example in this help article. Request you to replace it with your domain name.

Correct Go-live URL

Do not use any forward slash (/) after the domain name during Go-LIve request. It would be just “http://www” prefix to your domain name.

  • http://www.amrishmudgal.in/ – Incorrect URL for Go-live request
  • http://amrishmudgal.in – Incorrect URL for Go-live request
  • http://amrishmudgal.in/ – Incorrect URL for Go-live request
  • http://www.amrishmudgal.in – Correct URL for Go-live request 


Notes

1. Before your point your existing domain name to your Pixpa website, make sure that you have taken a backup of whatever is important from your current hosting provider.

2. You are still responsible for domain name fees and renewals with your current registrar.
