How to Connect Existing Domain Name to Your Website

When you start a website during a 14-day free trial period, it’ll get a random domain name on Weblium.com. You need to subscribe to the Growth Plan to choose a custom name for your site on Weblium.com, connect a new domain name, or the one you already own.

In this instruction, you will learn how to connect the domain name that you own to your website on Weblium.

Make sure that you own a domain name you want to connect to Weblium.com and then proceed to the following steps:

Part 1. Settings on your domain name registrar

Step 1. Go to your domain name registrar website and sign in to your account.

Step 2. Open the settings for the domain name that you want to connect to your website.

Step 3. Create or change 2 records in domain settings (Nameserver) panel:

Record Type: Record data:
Record 1 NS ns1.weblium.com
Record 2 NS ns2.weblium.com

Note: These settings will apply to the entire website, including all subdomains and connected email addresses. If you want to connect only the main domain (or one of the subdomains) to Weblium, please contact us at support@weblium.com. We’ll be glad to help you!

Step 4. Save the settings.

Part 2. Settings on Weblium.com

Step 1. Go to Weblium.com and log in to your account.

Step 2. Go to My Websites and find a site, the domain name of which you want to change.
Again, remember that this website should be subscribed to the Growth Plan.

Step 3. Choose Site Settings > Domains

Step 4. Add a host name WITHOUT http/www.
Example: mywebsite.com

Step 5. Click “Connect”

Done! Now it’s time to wait a little bit. Connecting a domain name takes 24 hours on average.

IMPORTANT: Even after connecting a domain name to your website on Weblium, you will still have to control all domain name settings, including payment methods, on the domain registrar website.

If the domain name is not connected within 24 hours, or you face any other issue, do not hesitate to contact our setup experts in chat or via:
