If you have a domain in Namecheap and would like to connect it to your Portfoliobox website, you can follow the steps below. Before configuring your domain DNS in Namecheap, first you will need to add your domain to your Portfoliobox account.

  1. Click on the message at the bottom of your screen "Click here to set up your domain name". If you cannot see this message, you can log out from your account, clear the browser cache and log in again. 
  2. Under Set Up Your Domain Name, check the box "I want to use a domain that I already own".
  3. Finally enter your domain name under Your Existing Domain then click on Submit.

After this, you can go to Namecheap and configure your domain.


1. Go to Domain and under Nameservers, select Namecheap BasicDNS, then click on the Green Check Mark to save.
   

            

  2. Then go to Advanced DNS and add the following settings:
       

1. Create an A-record for your domain name:

The A-record creates a redirection from yourdomain.com to www.yourdomain.com.

RECORD TYPE
NAME / HOST
TTL
VALUE / POINTS TO
A
@
10800
107.20.241.149


2. Create a CNAME for the subdomain "www"

The CNAME record connects www.yourdomain.com to your Portfoliobox site.

RECORD TYPE
NAME / HOST
TTL
VALUE / POINTS TO
CNAME
www
10800
home.portfolioboxdns.com



After adding the above settings, your domain should start working after the DNS propagation period that normally lasts no more than 48 hours. If your domain is still not working after 48 hours, you can contact our support team for assistance.
