Log in to your B12 account at b12.io.

  • Once you're logged in, click Domains on the left side of your website editor.
  • Click on the '+' symbol next to Custom Domain(s) to add a new domain name.
  • Enter your domain name in the Domain field starting with 'www'. Click Save when you have added the domain name. 
  • Copy the CNAME record as shown below, which ends in ".b12sites.com".  
  • Click the 'X' on the top right of the Domains window to close it
  • Click purple Publish button in the upper-right corner of the website editor to publish the live website to your domain.

Open up a new tab and log in to the account you have with your domain provider (e.g. Google Domains).

  • Find your DNS settings. Look for your account admin panel, or your domain management area, or DNS configuration, or similar. 
  • There are only 2 things you need to change: the A record & the 'www' CNAME.

For the A record, 

  • Enter or select the @ symbol, or A record.
  • Key in B12's IP address: as the destination for the A record.
  • Save the A record (click Save, Save Zone File, Add Record, or similar)

For the CNAME,

  • Make sure there is a row for the 'www' CNAME record.
  • Change your 'www' CNAME's 'value' to the CNAME record you copied from your website editor. 
  • Click save.

And that's it!

Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for DNS changes to propagate, as a result your website may take up to 24 hours to be live on your domain.
