Using your own domain

Already own a domain through GoDaddy, Namecheap or another provider? 

With about.me Pro, you can map a domain you already own to your about.me page.

First, go to the DNS settings page of your domain provider ( GoDaddy, Namecheap, Bluehost, etc)

Then, create the following records:

  1. Create an A record: type @ for "Host" and paste 52.2.64.1 under "Value" or "Points to"
  2. CNAME record: type www for "Host" and paste yourdomain.com under "Value" or "Points to"

    * Make sure you don't have any other A Records or CNAME Records listed. If you do, you'll want to delete them.

Also be sure that your Nameservers are set to default. If you see custom here, click to change the selection to default.

If any of these fields don't match what you see in your domain registrar's DNS settings, please contact your registrar's support team for help. 

Every registrar has a slightly different setup, so their team will be able to help you get set up. If they ask for the IP address, you'll want to share  52.2.64.1 with them.

Please keep in mind, your domain may take up to 48 hours to process.
