To set up your domain with HostGator, please follow the instructions below:
- Login to your HostGator.com cPanel link (HostGator usually emails you this after purchase).
- Scroll down to the domains section.
- Click DNS Zone Editor
- Place the following information under Add DNS Record Host Record: m TTL: 14400 Type: CNAME Points To: username.clippings.me. So, if your clippings.me address is www.clippings.me/nicholasholmes, enter 'nicholasholmes.clippings.me').
- Click Add Record.
- After you've done that, you can log into clippings.me, select 'Domains' from the menu at the top right, and enter your domain name (i.e. www.yourname.com) in there.
With the CNAME correctly added to HostGator, the system should allow you to save the new domain and your new address will be working.
