For your website to appear online, two things are necessary:

  1. Your website template needs to be connected to a Zyro plan and domain name

  2. Your domain needs to be connected to Zyro servers

Zyro website template + Zyro plan + Domain = Your website

If you've purchased and registered your domain name at Zyro, it's connected to our servers by default. It means that once you connect your Zyro domain to your Zyro website, no additional steps are required. Simply give it some time and your website will get online within 24 hours!

If your domain is not registered at Zyro, you'd simply need to point your domain name to our servers manually. It's really easy and there are several ways to do it:

Pointing your domain to Zyro via nameservers

1. Log in to the website where you purchased your domain name.

2. Find your domain's nameserver settings.

3. Delete all current nameservers and insert Zyro nameservers: dns1.zyro.com and dns2.zyro.com.

4. Save the changes and give it some time: your website will appear online within 24 hours.

NOTES:

  • Nameservers always indicate where your domain's DNS zone is managed from

  • Once you point your domain to Zyro via nameservers, you can manage your domain's DNS zone on the Domains page in your Zyro dashboard

  • If you're asked to specify IPs for the nameservers, refer here

  • Make sure that the DNSSEC configuration for your domain is disabled (DNSSEC is not yet supported at Zyro), otherwise, your domain won't work

Pointing your domain to Zyro via CNAME records

If you prefer to manage your domain at your current domain provider, you can add two specific CNAME records to your domain's DNS zone.

1. Log in to the website where you purchased your domain name.

2. Find your domain's DNS management zone.

3. Delete all A and AAAA type records for @ (if there are any). For example:

4. Add two CNAME type records:

CNAME 1

CNAME 2

HOST: @

POINTS TO: connect.zyrosite.com

TTL: select any (or leave the default) value

HOST: www

POINTS TO: connect.zyrosite.com

TTL: select any (or leave the default) value

For example:

5. Save the changes and give it some time: your website will appear online within 24 hours.

NOTES:

  • There can be many other DNS records, but there must be only one @ and only one www record (see example above)

  • If your domain provider doesn't allow creating a CNAME record for @, you can point your domain to Zyro by updating nameservers or using Cloudflare.

  • Make sure that the DNSSEC configuration for your domain is disabled (DNSSEC is not yet supported at Zyro), otherwise, your domain won't work
