How to Point a Domain Name to Your Website?


Or What do I do with my domain once it's been registered?
You need to update your domain name's "DNS records" to point to the IP address of your new website.
Your hosting provider will provide you with your website's IP address when you first establish your account with them. Your domain name register will provide you with a control panel to update the DNS records. If you register your domain name through your hosting provider, this will probably be the same control panel that you use to administer your website.

Updating the DNS records is easier than it sounds. However, if you're not sure what to do, your hosting provider or domain name registrar will be able to assist.

Besides setting up a website, there are a number of things you can do with your domain name once you register it.

Sell it:
Domain names can be a great investment. If you have registered a domain name that you are not using, maybe someone else can. You can set up a For Sale parked page to let visitors know that it's available — and don't forget to include your contact information. See Setting Up a Domain For Sale Page for more information.

Protect your brand online:
The more domain names you register, the better. Prevent others from registering a similar domain name to yours. These similar domain names can steal your customers or confuse them. What can you do with all these domain names? Forward them to your main domain name's website. See Forwarding or Masking Your Domain Name for more information.

Hold on to it:
Maybe you haven't decided what to do with your new domain name. Don't worry — there's no rush. You can leave it parked with us for the length of your registration. You can also monetize it by setting it up in a CashParking® account. See What is CashParking? for more information.
