Important: You may use a domain purchased elsewhere for your Bookmark website provided that you subscribe to one of our membership plans.

NOTE - not all domain registars will allow you to create subdomains (especially if you do not have a hosting account).  Please confirm with your registrar before trying this.

 

You just need to make a few changes to your Domain Host. To go over how the main website should look, please view the image below:

You’ll need to do 2 things:

  1. Create a new A Record

  2. Create a CNAME Record

 

There are two hostnames you need to re-direct:

  1. Hostname: subdomainname.yourwebsite.com

  2. Record Type - A Record

  3. Point to Bookmark IP Address - 54.191.83.178

  4. Hostname: www.subdomainname.yourwebsite.com

  5. Record Type - CNAME

  6. Point to Name Server - ns.bookmark.com

As you can see once everything is completed you should have two groups of records for Bookmark. One will be the record for your main site, and the other will be the record for the sub-domain
