I don't own a domain name, what do I do?
Purchasing a domain name is painless. There are a ton of domain registrars to choose from on the Internet. If you don't have a preferred domain registrar, we recommend you check out Namecheap.

What happens after I point these records?
Your Sitecast will have a beautiful new domain name to share with your audience.

How long will it take to go live?
It depends on your DNS provider and your location in the world. It may take up to 24 to 48 hours for the DNS to propogate after you switch over these two host records.

In other words, sometimes it takes awhile for all the servers, satellites, and cute hamsters to know about this new domain setting.

Will this affect my email at this domain?
Nope. Your email settings are found in the MX records. Which is a different type of record within your domain's DNS settings. So whatever you are using to host your email now, you can continue to use.

I don't have email at this domain yet. How should I create email addresses?
We recommend checking out Google Apps, Rackspace, or possibly the email service provided by your domain name registrar.

Are there any gotchas I should know about?
Sometimes there may be a CNAME for your @ record or www record or both. You don't need them anymore. But besides those two possibilities, you shouldn't need to touch any of the other DNS records. All other CNAME records, MX records, TXT records, etc. are for your other services.

Can you give me a motivational nudge?
Don't worry, you've got this! Breath in... Breath out... Overall, the process should be pretty smooth for you. If you get stuck, check out your DNS manager's support documents or send us an email at wecare@sitecast.com

If you've set everything up properly, you will not experience any downtime during the switch.

How do I know when the domain switches over?
