How to assign a domain to a website

In order to assign a domain to a website, you need to add an A- or an AAAA-record to its domain servers:

  • An А-record assigns a domain to an IPv4 address;
  • An AAAA-record assigns a domain to an IPv6 address.

  2. Go to the domain management form.
  3. Open a list of resource records (RRs) of your domain.
