How to connect a domain I already own?
If you want to turn an existing domain into the domain for link shortening, you need to change DNS records.
Warning: Do not change the main DNS settings for a domain of your active website. This will lead to the website go down. Short.cm does not work on the active website domains. You need a domain that is not in use.
To connect your DNS, do the following steps:
Log into your domain name registrar account (GoDaddy, Hostgator, Register.com, etc).
Navigate to DNS Settings page.
- If your DNS management allows multiple A records, you can add A record with value "126.96.36.199". It will increase stability of your short domain
Save your changes.
Wait a few hours for your domain to become active. You will receive an email from Short.cm when your domain is configured correctly.
Learn the detailed instructions on how to add a domain to Short.cm. Choose a guide depending on your domain host.
In case of any quiestions, feel free to contact Short.cm support.
