Step 1: Search and register your domain
Search and register your domain at Namecheap.
Follow the order proccess, it is straight forward.
Step 2: Set a Catch-All Email
After completing the order go to the domain settings by clicking on the domain. Set up a Catch-All Redirect email to another email you own (gmail, yahoo, etc.). Make sure emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org reach you!
Step 3: Set up DNS
Now select “Advanced DNS” and delete all “CNAME Record” and “URL Redirect” entries. After that add entries with the following values:
Type: A Record Host: @ Value: 18.104.22.168
Type: CNAME Record Host: www Value: your-domain.com.
- Please exchange “your-domain.com.” to match your actual domain name.
- The last dot (after the last letter of your domain) in the second entry at “Value” has to be included.
- It may take up to several hours to get all this to work!
Step 4: Shopmaker needs to set up a SSL certificate
When your domain is connected to our server we need to create a SSL certificate for your shop so it is available via HTTPS. Due to technical issues how SSL works you need to contact us and tell us your domain name. We’ll create the certificate for you in no time.
When everything works, you should be redirected to your shop when you enter your domain.
