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