You may want to review the process for adding a custom domain within Exhibit first. But if you want specific steps to update DNS, look for your domain registrar from the list below.
First, there are two types of DNS records that need to be updated to point your custom domain to Exhibit:
Also called an Address or Host Record, every domain has an A record that associates the domain to the server's IP address. This allows people to remember domain names (rather than hard-to-remember IP addresses) to connect to a website.
Also called a CNAME Alias or Host Alias, CNAME stands for Canonical Name Record. A CNAME record allows you to point one of your subdomains to a different server. For Exhibit, we need to add a CNAME record so that if a user types www before your bare domain into the browser, it will also point to your Exhibit site.
We do our best to keep these links up to date. But registrars may change their help documentation at any time. If a link doesn't take you to the right place, please let us know.
"From your Domain Control Panel, select the domain name you wish to modify the DNS records for and select Manage Advanced Domain Record Settings (CNAME, A, MX). From here, you can fully modify the DNS records for your domain name."
