Connect Register.com Domain to Weebly

Connecting your custom Register.com from Hover 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.

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 Register.com Domain to Weebly IP address

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

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

Register.com: Connect Domain To Weebly IP address

Host NameTypeData
@ A199.34.228.75
www A199.34.228.75

 

To add or edit A record, follow these steps:

New Account Manager View:

  1. Click here and log in to your Register.com account.
  2. Hover your mouse over Domains, then choose Manage.
  3. On the next page choose Manage next to the domain name.
  4. Scroll and look for the Advanced Technical Settings. Click Edit A Record (IP Address).
  5. Place your alias (@ or example.com)in the left hand box and your IP (ex. 199.34.228.75) in the right hand box.
  6. Click Continue, then Continue again.
  7. You have updated your A records.

Classic Account Manager View:

  1. Click here and log in to your Register.com account.
  2. If you see your domain name as a blue link in the center of the page, then click it.
  3. Click Edit IP Address (A record). This option is found under the Advanced Technical Settings heading.
  4. Scroll and look for the Advanced Technical Settings, then click Edit A Record (IP Address).
  5. Place your alias (@ or example.com)in the left hand box and your IP (ex. 199.34.228.75) in the right hand box.
  6. Click Continue, then Continue again.
  7. You have updated your A records.

Repeat the same steps to create another A record pointing www to the same Weebly IP address.

 

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.
