Connect sitebuilder with domain at client area

Please note, to connect your sitebuilder with a domain, you must publish the website (button at the sitebuilder). The free sitebuilder or sitebuilder trial can not be connected to a domain.

If you manage your domain name with the sitebuilder at your client area: 

1.) Login to your client area and click on "My Services" and on the package which you use for the domain name. 
2.) Click on the button "Login to Control Panel". 
3.) Open the menu under "Hosting Features" -> "Domains" and click on "DNS Records" 
4.) Click on the button "View Records". 
5.) Add a new record at the top. Choose "CNAME" and click on "Go". 
6.) Host: www.yourdomain - TTL: 3600 - Alias: homepage.owooho.com and click on "Save"
7.) Delete the second entry for www.youdomain, which points to the ip address. 

If you want to point http://yourdomain to http://www.yourdomain: 

1.) Open the menu "Hosting Features" and click on ".Htaccess"
2.) Create or activate (if it already exists) the global .htaccess file.
3.) Click on the button "Redirects". 
4.) Create a Redirect form "/" to "http://www.yourdomain" and use the type "Permanent". 

Now login to your sitebuilder: 

1.) Click on "Manage" at the top. 
2.) Click on "Domain mapping". 
3.) Click on "Map a domain". 
4.) Fill in "www.yourdomain" and click on "Test mapping". You may need to check this repeatedly, until the change is visible.
5.) Only if the test is positive, click on the button "Map domain".
