Proper set up of external domain


#1

Greetings! I have registered domain elsewhere.

DNS needs CNAME set up like: [name].000webhostapp.com. I entered this.

Question 1: Do I need name servers pointed as well or I can I leave registrars?

My bigger question is I had older DNS records established. What do I put in place of the older IP in dns “A” etc?

Thank you for anyones contribution. :slight_smile: !

Follow this tutorial:


#4

you can leave registrars

there is no A record any more. use CNAME record


#5

Is it proper to delete A records or no problem?

So

DNS RECORDS FOR [DOMAIN.XYZ]

HOST NAME       TTL      RR TYPE     DATA

WWW.DOMAIN.XYZ  1 HOUR   CNAME       DOMAINXYZ.000WEBHOSTAPP.COM

If this was the only data in DNS this will forward?

That would be the correct setup 1 CNAME set at yourwebsite.000webhostapp.com yes.

Sounds good and clear thanks guys!
