How to add a domain to your website

We have two ways for you have your website hosted on a domain you've purchased separately.

  • If you don't have e-mail currently hosted on your domain, you can use our Quick Setup.
  • If you are already hosting e-mail on your domain, use our Advanced Setup so that's it's not disrupted.  Click here to go to the Advanced Setup now.

 

BEFORE you dive into the steps below, you'll need to get the login information for your account with your domain registrar. Please contact the company you registered the domain with (GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc.) to get this information. 

 

Quick Setup

These steps are best if you aren't currently hosting e-mail on the domain you're going to attach to your website.  You'll still be able to have e-mail on the domain in the future if you decide to set that up.

Step 1: Log into your Website's admin area and click Website in the toolbar at the top.

 

 

 

Step 2: When the Website Wizard loads, click on Manage Domains on the left-hand side. 

 

 

 

Step 3: In the Your Website Domain Pool section, click Add New Domain.

 

 

 

Step 4: Select Point Existing Domain and follow the steps on screen. You'll enter the domain you want to point to your site and finish by clicking Add Domain at the bottom of the window.

 

 

Step 5: Now you'll need to make some changes to your domain's settings. This is where you'll need to go to the website where you purchased your domain (Godaddy, Network Solutions, etc.) and login to your control panel. Do that now.

Step 6: While we can't tell you or show you where to go as EVERY domain registrar is different. We can tell you what you need to do. You'll want to add the following Name Server records to your domain. If you need assistance, contact your domain registrar and tell them "I need to add some Nameserver records to my domain".

Primary DNS Server dns1.name-services.com
Secondary DNS Server dns2.name-services.com

Additional DNS Servers

(If you can add more than 2)

dns3.name-services.com

dns4.name-services.com

dns5.name-services.com

It might take up to 24 or 48 hours for the changes to take effect. We'll continually check to see if our servers have recognized these changes yet. Once everything is done, we'll send you an e-mail letting you know your site's new domain is ready.

 

Advanced Setup

Step 1: Login to account with the domain registrar (GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc.) you purchased or now host your domain with. We can't show you where exactly to go because EVERY domain registrar's system looks different. If you need help from here on out, please contact the registrar and tell them "I need help updating my domain's records".

 

Step 2-A: If your registrar offers URL Redirection, follow this step. If not, go to step 2-B. You'll need to add the CNAME record below to your domain's records AND forward your @ record to your www record.

Only add the record for your profession - mortgage or real estate.

CNAME record to add for real estate agents/brokers cname.proiwebsites.com
CNAME record to add for mortgage professionals cname.proiwebsites.com

 

Step 2-B: If your registrar does not allow you to redirect your @ record to your www record, add the following records:

Only add the record for your profession - mortgage or real estate.

A Record for real estate agents/brokers 24.248.251.82
CNAME Record for real estate agents/brokers cname.proiwebsites.com
A Record for mortgage professionals 24.248.251.82
CNAME Record for mortgage professionals cname.proiwebsites.com

 

Step 3: Once your changes are complete, you MUST notify us of the changes so we can configure our server to respond to them. Simply e-mail us at domains@pipelineroi.com describing the domain name(s) you just made these changes to. We'll take it from there.
