Updating Your Domain at Google to Point to TourVista’s Web Servers

For clients that are managing your own domains, you’ll need to do some basic configuration to “point” it to TourVista’s web servers (where your new website will be hosted).

While a bit on the technical side, this is actually really easy to do. You’ll be updating what’s known as the A record, which tells the Internet the IP address where your website is to be found.

For domains registered at Google Domains follow these simple steps:

  1. In Google Domains, click configure DNS tab and click Custom resource records.
  2. Create an A record:
    1. Name: @
    2. TTL: 10m
    3. Data: paste the IP address we provided
  3. Create a CNAME record:
    1. Name: www
    2. TTL: 10m
    3. Data: @
  4. It will look like this: (be sure to use the IP address we provided)Google Domains settings


That’s it. Let us know you’ve completed these steps, thanks!

Within a few minutes, your domain will now be pointed to TourVista’s web servers. We’ll take care of the rest!

The process is very similar for other domain registrars. If you can’t figure it out, try getting in touch with your registrar’s support for help.
