Domain Name Delegation/Pointing

If you have not pointed your DNS to your store already, please take the following steps:

1. Log in to your Domain Registrar
2. Find your Domain name to point
3. Edit your DNS/Nameserver settings


 You should only need to enter the nameservers. The DNS settings take effect within a few hours, When your DNS is successfully changed (you can see this by typing in your domain name and seeing if it locates your new site), your email will begin working. If you are transferring from another host who managed your email, be sure to download all email to your computer first, as they will dissapear on transfer.

If you have a subdomain or you would like to manage your emails from a different host with your main domain, you will need to create a cname from your current hosting provider.

The Ashop Commerce CNAME is store.shop033.com

Once this cname has been created for either your main domain or subdomain, please let our staff know and we will set up our end as well.
