These are the steps on how to manually connect your domain through Google.

⚠️ If you are wanting to migrate a blog you can not switch your DNS records until our Showit blog team has finished migrating your blog. If you do switch your DNS records before your blog is migrated, our blog team will be unable to migrate your blog. Once the migration is complete, our team will message you and give you the necessary DNS records.

If you need to add or migrate a blog you can do so here:

💡 If you've already applied the DNS settings and just need to have the SSL (secured url) applied, you can message our support team and ask for that to be setup.

To get started you'll want to login to your google account where you purchased the domain. After signing into your account go here  
You should see your domain listed below. Next select "DNS"

On the next screen scroll down to the bottom where you should see "Custom resource records"

Enter in the following DNS settings within the Custom Resource Records:

A Record @ (or leave blank) to (Have a blog? Use the IP provided by our team)
A record * to
CNAME www to (<--whatever your unique domain is - like ours would be

⚠️ If you have a showit blog IP don't setup a CNAME record. Instead add a new

A Record.

A Record: www to: (showit blog IP address)

Once you have set up these 3 DNS records occasionally, the changes that were made can take time to propagate throughout the internet worldwide. So if you aren't seeing it live just yet, give it another few hours, and refresh the page.
In rare cases, it can take up to 48 hours for full propagation. If it's not working at that point for you, then message our support team
