I already have a domain. How do I connect it to my website?

Exai allows you to connect your domain name to your website on Exai while still keeping the domain name with your current provider.

You have two methods to connect your domain to your site: 

Method A: Change the NS Records (Name Servers). This is generally easier and quicker to do . 

Method B: Change your A Records. 

In this page we give an example of changing your A Records. You will need to login to your domain registrar and point the A Records to Exai's IP address. The A record maps your domain name to your website (IP Address). Please note that you must pay for Exai hosting in order to connect your domain name to your website.

Here is how to connect a domain to my website:

Step 1: Login to your domain registrar.

Step 2: Select Manage Domains

Step 3: Select A Records

An A record (Address Record) points a domain or sub domain to an IP address.

In order to successfully point your domain to your Exai website, you need to redirect the A-Records from within your DNS control panel to the following IP address:

Make sure that you include WWW and any other prefix (like the @ symbol)  in the A record. See example images below.

 Step 4:  Login to your Exai account and select manage domains.
Remember that the  connect is done from your domain registrar account (not related to EXAI).

Step 5Add your domain to the website
