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

⚠️ 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 records and just need to have the SSL (secured url) applied, you can message our support team and ask us to setup your SSL.

Before self-configuring, your DNS be sure you've connected the domain within your showit app.

To find your specific DNS records follow these steps:
1). Click your name in the lower left corner of Showit
2). Choose Manage Account
3). Click Your DNS Records below your domain

(If you do not see a domain in your account screen, go into the Showit app and ensure you have clicked "connect my domain" in the upper left of Showit to first submit your domain)

4). Apply the DNS records - you can work with your domain host customer support to do so by giving them the records or reference the video above for instructions on setting up these records

Pro Tip: Take a screenshot of your DNS records before changing anything! Often people are worried they might totally break their site, it's fairly difficult to do if you only change the provided records. But, having a screenshot of the original records will allow you to put things back as it was in the rare event that anything goes wrong.
