How do I redirect a domain name to my Web Hosting?

What is a Domain name?

A Domain name is the unique address of a website. This is the string of letters and/or numbers that you put in the address bar of an internet browser when you want to visit a website. For example: mydomain.com

How to connect your Domain name to your Web Hosting

If your domain is registered with Crazy Domains, it is automatically connected to your Web Hosting.

If your domain is registered with another provider while your Web Hosting is with Crazy Domains, you need to connect your domain to your hosting.

To connect your domain to your Crazy Domains hosting, you have to log in to your domain registrar’s account manager and select the domain name you want to connect to your hosting, and change its Name Servers.

Set your domain name servers for the domain to:

  • ns1.syrahost.com
  • ns2.syrahost.com

If you have any difficulties, contact your provider and give them the Name Servers above to set up on your domain name. If you have further problems, you may also transfer your domain to us.

Important note: After setting the name servers, it can take up to 24 hours for the changes or updates to successfully take effect.

How to add your domain name to your Web Hosting

After connecting your domain to your Crazy Domains Web Hosting, you can then set it up in your hosting account via Connect Domains/Addon Domains. To do this, follow the steps below:

  1. Click on My Account at the top of the page.
  2. Select Hosting Manager from the drop-down menu.
  3. Enter your username and password, and click Log In.
  4. On the Home page, click the word Connect Domains on the left sidebar.
  5. Next page, under Create an Addon Domain, type the domain name of the website you want to host in the New Domain Name field.
    After entering the new domain name, the system will automatically input the Subdomain name for you.

    Note: If you want a different name, you can change it by manually entering your preferred name in the Subdomain field.

    In the Document Root field, the system will also automatically create a directory path inside your hosting space, which by default will have the same name as your domain name.

    Note: If you want to rename the default path, you can change it by manually typing the path name you prefer in the Document Root field.

    If you want to create an FTP account for the Addon Domain, check the Create an FTP account associated with this Addon Domain. This will open the FTP Account login fields you need to fill out.
FTP Username This is the FTP account name. It will have the new domain name as its default username.

If you want to change it, you can manually enter your preferred username in the text box.
Password This will serve as your authorisation key that will enable you to access your FTP connection. The system will tell you how weak or strong your new password is when you type it in the appropriate fields.

If you find it difficult to make a strong enough new password, you can let the system create one for you.

Click the Password Generator button. In the pop-up box, copy the generated password and paste that in the Password fields.

You can also choose to check I have copied this password in a safe place. Then, click Use Password. This will automatically copy and paste the generated password in the Password fields.

Important Note: Make sure you have actually saved the generated password in a safe and easy to recall place.

Password (Again) This is only for confirmation and should be the same as the new Password you typed above.
  1. Click Add Domain.
    Your new domain name will now be added to your Web Hosting account.

Congratulations, you now know how to connect your domain to your Web Hosting.
