Connecting a domain

To connect your domain to your Nimbo website, first you need to tell Nimbo what your domain is. From the dashboard, click 'Connect a domain' in the 'What's next' column, and follow the instructions there to set a domain for your site.

If you're on an annual plan, and you're taking advantage of our "free domain" offer, there's nothing more for you to do - connection is all automatic.

If you're using a domain you already own, then the next steps will depend on your email situation. Choose one of these options:

I have a domain, but no website or email

That makes things simple! Follow the Name Server instructions to connect your domain.

I have email and website hosting

In technical terms: your domain is pointing to a webhost via Name Server at your domain registrar.

If you want to keep your email setup exactly as it is now, please ask your current webhost to update the A record for your www DNS entry on their hosting server, so as not to disrupt your email.

If you don't want to keep your current email setup, follow the Name Server instructions.

I have email set up at my domain registrar

If you want to keep your email settings at your domain registrar, update the A record for your www DNS entry so as not to disrupt your email.

If you don't want to keep your current email setup, follow the Name Server instructions.
