How do I set up my domain for short links?

To get your domain point to short.cm, you need to set up an A record.

  1. Sign in to your domain's host account.

    GoDaddy and eNom are examples of domain hosts.

  2. Locate the page for updating your domain's DNS records.

    The page might be called something like DNS Zone File, Name Server Management, or Advanced Settings. Get specific steps for your domain host.

  3. Locate the A records for your domain.

  4. Update your existing A records to point to short.cm servers by entering this A record value: 52.21.33.16

  5. Delete any A or CNAME records for this host not pointing to short.cm

  6. Save your changes and wait until they take effect. The changes can take up to 72 hours to go into effect depending on your domain host, but generally occur within a few hours. If the changes don't take effect after 72 hours, please contact us.
