If you’ve registered your domain name with another registrar (compare our domain registration and renewal fees) and you want us to host your site, then you’ll need to ‘point’ it to our hosting service so we can start building your new website.
Please note that when we refer to email below we are talking about email addresses on your domain name e.g. [email protected]
I want my website and email hosted with PogoStick
Log in to your domain registrar and change the domain DNS to what’s shown below:
I only want my website hosted with PogoStick
This option is when you already have your email setup somewhere else (e.g. Google Workspace, Microsoft Outlook 365 etc.).
Update your domain’s A record to 188.8.131.52. It may be just the non-www version of your domain, or it could be both the www and non-www if there is no CNAME record for the www).
After you have updated your domain settings, please let us know so we can start setting up your new website hosting.
