If you create a single property site and you do not want to use our provided domain name, here are a few other options that you can use (please be aware you may not have access to the options listed below):



Use a domain name you already own


If your domain is not being used with another website, follow these steps:


1. Login to your domain registrar.

2. Go to the DNS records and change the A (Host) record to point at the following IP address: 18.216.40.237

3. Navigate to Web Marketing -> Domains.

4. Click “+Add an Existing Domain.”

5. Enter the domain name as shown (for example, 123mainstreet.com).

6. Set the status to “Active.”  You can also choose if your co-marketing partners should have access to use the domain that you're adding.

7. Save your settings.

8. Go back to your single property website and click “Edit.”

9. Click on “Website Address.”

10. Select your domain name from the list.


Reference the video below to see how to do this through GoDaddy. Other registrars will have a similar process. We use GoDaddy as an example since it’s the most popular registrar we use.








Use a domain name you own, that's used on another website.


If you are already using your domain name with another website, you can create a subdomain (for example, homes.johnsmith.com). Follow these steps:


1. Login to your domain registrar.

2. Edit the DNS records on your domain name and add an A (Host) record.

4. Navigate to Web Marketing -> Domains.

5. Click "+Add New Domain."
