Step 1. Login to your Domain Registrar

Log in to your domain registrar's site. Once there, locate the 'Zone File Settings', 'DNS Manager', 'Host Records', or similar area of your registrar's control panel.

Step 2. Create a 'CNAME Record'

Once there, you will create records that point your domain to AgentMethods. You'll see fields for the following:

Host Name Record Type Address

You'll want to create a 'CNAME Record' that points to

The first record, for (replace with your domain name)

Step 4. Link your AgentMethods account to your domain

Now, log back in to your AgentMethods account. Go to Site Settings under Manage Your Site and enter your domain name where it asks for 'Domain Name'.

Step 5. Give the DNS record time to spread across the Internet

It may take up to 72 hours for changes in DNS records to show up, but often they will show up much more quickly. Test your website by trying to visit your domain name in a web browser. If it doesn't work after 72 hours, contact us for help.

Securing Your Site via SSL

Once your DNS records are updated and your site is live at your domain, our system will automatically configure your site with an SSL.
