Step 4:
You will see a list of 2 records on the right.* These are so-called DNS records that you will add to your domain in the next steps.
* If you are using a subdomain (like: subdomain.mydomain.com) then you will only see 1 record.

Step 5:
Open a new tab and go to the website where you purchased your domain. Log in to your account.
 
 
Step 6:
Open settings for the domain you want to use and find where it says Manage DNS or something similar.
 
 
Step 7:
Add 2 new records using the data from Popsy. Make sure to save changes in the end.
 
If you are using a subdomain (like: subdomain.mydomain.com) then you only need to set 1 record.
 
 
Step 8:
Go back to Popsy and click Publish. You are done! 🙏
 
The publishing process usually takes a few minutes, but in some cases it can take up to 24 hours. This tool can be used to check if the records are set up correctly: https://www.whatsmydns.net/. If you encounter any issues contact us at hello@popsy.co.
