How to setup a domain name

If you don't already have a domain name, grab a free one from the Settings page of your site's admin area, or from one of the many great domain registrars out there.

Step One - Setting Up your DNS Records

From your domain host's website, you'll need to setup two "DNS records":

Host Type Points To
@ A

Erase or overwrite any duplicate records. Your domain shouldn't have multiple "A" records pointing to "@" or "CNAME" records pointing to "www".

Step Two - Adding your Domain to 22Slides

From the admin area for your website, click Settings, then Add a custom domain.

Enter your custom domain name in the blank and click the submit button.

Step Three - Wait

These changes can take anywhere from a few minutes to 12 hours to update, so don't worry if your domain doesn't start working immediately.
