Connect FastDomain Domain to Weebly

Connecting your custom domain from FastDomain to Weebly is pretty straightforward and relatively easy.

The first one is to add the domain as the Site Address in Weebly and the second is to point your domain to the IP address assigned to your site.

Note: Just like other web host providers such as Wix, Squarespace and Shopify, you need to have a paid hosting plan to be able to connect your domain name to Weebly.

Part 1. Add your existing domain in Weebly

  1. Login to your Weebly.com account
  2. Select the website you wish to link to your domain.
  3. Click the Settings tab at the top
  4. Under General > Site address click the Change button.

Connect FastDomain to Weebly - Use a domain you already own

You’ll be shown two options for making the necessary DNS changes to your domain: One for doing it yourself, and one for emailing your domain host for assistance.

Choose one of these options and follow the steps to get your DNS records updated to point to the provided IP address.

Don’t forget to publish your website to the new site address when the process is complete.

 

Part 2. Point Your FastDomain Domain to Weebly IP address

This part varies depending who’s the DNS provider of your domain name.

But if you’re using FastDomain name servers, you just need to point the root domain @ and subdomain www to the same Weebly IP address. Example Weebly resource records:

www A199.34.228.75

Create DNS records

    • Legacy: Select the DNS Zone Editor icon in the Domains section.
    • Rock: Click the Domains tab from the side navigation menu, then select the Zone Editor option.
  2. Select the domain you’re modifying from the drop-down box.
  3. Scroll down to the heading named Add DNS Record
  4. In the Host Record field, enter the subdomain www.

  6. Select A, from the drop-down labeled Type
  7. In the Points To field, enter Weebly IP address value (ex. 199.34.228.75).
  8. Other fields may appear depending on the type of record you are creating.
  9. Click on the Add Record button to create the record

Add a new record

Once you have accessed the DNS Zone Editor these steps will explain how to add a new record.

  1. Scroll down to the heading named Add DNS Record.
  2. In the Host Record field, enter @.
  3. Leave the TTL field at it’s default setting.
  4. Select the A type for your application, from the drop-down labeled Type.
  5. In the Points To field, enter the Weebly IP address (ex. 199.34.228.75).
  6. Other fields may appear depending on the type of record you are creating.
  7. Click on the Add Record button to create the record.

 

Publish Site

Once you’ve updated the domain’s DNS settings, return to your Weebly site and publish it.

Due to DNS propagation delay, you may not be able to see the changes immediately.

 

DNS Propagation

All DNS changes may take 24 – 48 hours to fully take effect across the entire internet. This delay is also known as DNS propagation.

If the DNS has been properly configured and the domain has been added successfully through Weebly, it’s just a matter of time before you see the domain integrated with your Weebly website.

 

If you have another domain from a different domain registrar that you wish to connect with Weebly, check this post.
