You being here means that you are about to go live, you have your new website completed enough for others to see it. Or, you are just looking to add an additional domain that you already own to utilize in your existing hosting account with us.


If you currently have a domain name that you are ready to use with your Sharefaith website, find your username and password for your current registrar. If you are not sure who is the registrar of your domain name, search either http://who.is or http://whois.net. You may have to call the registrar with proof of ownership if the staff person who is listed is no longer at your ministry.

Please take the time to find out who your domain name registrar currently is (i.e. GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc...) and have your username and password ready.


IF YOU ARE NOT READY TO GO LIVE, GO BACK, DO NOT DO THIS STEP YET AS YOUR SITE WILL BE LIVE, YOUR TEMPORARY DOMAIN WILL DISAPPEAR, AND YOUR CURRENT SITE WILL NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE.


To go live follow these simple steps.


  1. Click on the Settings button.


  2. Click on the "Domain" tab. 
  3. Click on the "Use a domain you already own" button


  4. Enter your domain name. Then click on the "Right Arrow" Please note that you do not have to enter the www.
     


  5. Click on the "Leave my domain registrar as-is button.



  6. If you make a mistake and misspell your domain you will see the below scenario and you should not proceed. Just click the back arrow and it will take you to step 3.


  7. Read the disclaimer, copy down the provided A Record, then click the "Check" Button




  8. Update the A Record that you have received with your current domain registrar account. Please be aware that it may take up to 24 hours for your changes to take effect and for your Sharefaith website to be viewable with your domain name.
