Connecting domain with 000webhost - CNAME only?


#1

Hi,

I bought my own domainname and everything works with CNAME. However, I want the url in my browser to stay www.mywebsite.com and not just a forward to mywebsite.000webhost.com. I guess this could be fixed by changing the DNS server to that of 000website (ns01.000webhost.com + ns02.000webhost.com) on the website where I bought the domainname but I would also need to get something added on the control panel of 000webhost. I am reading that since a short period there is a new control panel for free users which only allows CNAME? Is this correct, and is the only way to fix my issue to buy a pro package?

I have purchased domain name from bigrock.in. I want to host it from 000webhost.com. I have email service on bigrock with domain which I want to use. If I change nameservers, I wont be able to use mail services. If I add cname records, still I am unable to use mail services. I contacted bigrock, and they said that I need to add A record. Now 000webhost don’t show IP address, as it used to. How do I add A recodr with IP address? Please Help!

@smartsmith You can’t add A record with IP address as ip addresses changes regularly.

I suggest use “Email Forwarder” provided by 000webhost.

or Use any other email service, like: GSuite

else upgrade to premium for email services.
