Setting Up Your Personal Domain Name

This document will show you how to point your personal domain name to any web page using the URL redirect function.

Step 1: If you have not already done so, purchase your domain name (or transfer an existing domain name) via Fistbump Media's domain name services.

Step 2: Log into your Client Area account.

Step 3: From the Domains drop-down menu, go to My Domains.



Step 4: Select Manage Nameservers from the Manage Domain menu for the desired domain name.



Step 5: Ensure that the nameservers are set to use the following nameservers (you may need to select Use custom nameservers):

dns1.name-services.com
dns2.name-services.com
dns3.name-services.com
dns4.name-services.com
dns5.name-services.com



Step 6: From the Management Tools drop-down menu, select Manage DNS option.



Step 7: Add two Host Name records (one for @ and one for www), both with the Record Type of URL Redirect and the Address with the link of the page you want users to land on when they type the personal domain name into their browser.



Note: It may take several hours (up to 24 hours in some cases) for the change to filter through various servers around the web.ns1.name-services.com
