First of all, you have to go to the domain settings on the site where you have registered the domain itself.

There, you need to add a type A record for a domain or a record like CNAME for a sub-domain. You don't have to change NS records for your domain.
If you run into any issues, try reading instructions at the domain name registrar or talk to their support service.

For a domain
E.g. mysite.com 

  1. Go to the control panel of your domain
  2. In the settings, find something like 'Add a record to DNS'
  3. Add a type A record with the IP address 142.93.172.24 
  4. If there is a "Host" field, add the @ symbol there.

For a subdomain
E.g. sub.mysite.com
Add a A record with the IP address 142.93.172.24
If there is a "Host" field, add a name of a subdomain (sub for sub.mysite.com) there.

IMPORTANT: Only the A record with our 142.93.172.24 IP address should point to the domain you want to add. If you have multiple A records, please remove them before placing a domain/subdomain on Shorby.

Then, go to Project Settings > Custom domains (beta). Put the name of the domain in the field Domain name. For instance, 

Note that it may take 6-72 hours for the changes to apply. When everything is ready, we will notify you via email, and you can add your domain in the Settings of Shorby Smart Page.

If you want your link to be mysite.com/insta, enter "insta" at the alias field.
If you want it to be mysite.com leading to a Shorby page (root link), enter the "/" symbol at the alias field.

You can enable SSL for all of the links with a custom domain on Shorby. Click here to get the instructions!

Troubleshooting: if you have any problem while setting a domain, please contact us in the chat! We highly recommend you to mention a domain name which has a problem.
