If you need help with registering a domain name click below according to the domain provider you have chosen:

GoDaddy

Google Domains

WordPress

1&1 (you need to scroll down and click ‘How do I register a domain names with 1&1?’)

Namecheap

Enom

Network Solutions

Bluehost

DreamHost

Please notice the domain name registration process might not be immediate. You should receive an email notification asking you to verify your email address 1 to 2 days after you have registered the domain name.

Once you have registered the domain name you need to connect it to your website on Photler. To get to know how to do this read the guide below.

Log in to your account on your domain provider website. Find there a site to manage domains (in the ‘Domains’ section) and follow the instructions listed according to the instructions of modifying name servers.

Here are custom name servers from Photler you are about to use:

- name server 1: ns1.photler.com

- name server 2: ns2.photler.com

Note, erasing the name servers listed in each box on your domain provider account and replacing them with Photler name servers you are obligated to enter only two of them (even if there are four DNS records possible only two are mandatory).

You need to enter them on your domain provider’s website. You will find more information about the whole process below.

You can usually change your name servers at your domain registrar’s website, but the process is different for each registrar. Instructions for popular registrars are available below:

GoDaddy

Google Domains

WordPress

1&1

Namecheap

Enom

Network Solutions

BlueHost

DreamHost

Please note, it may take up to 48 hours (in case of DreamHost even up to 72h) until the new name servers are updated.

Now log in to your User Panel and go to ‘Settings’.

domain1_1

Choose ‘Domain’. Here you can buy, connect, and manage domains associated with your website.

domain2

Under the ‘Connect your own domain’ enter your new domain name and click ‘Connect’ button.

domain6

A new panel will open with the records you need to fill in with your domain provider name servers (DNS1 and DNS2) so your domain connects to Photler. You can find DNS you need on your domain provider account or contact the support department at your domain registrar for help if necessary.

Click ‘Change’. A confirmation page will be displayed. Please note, it may take up to 48 hours until the new name servers set are recognized by all servers/computers on the Internet.
