Using a Custom Domain Name

To use Svija with a custom domain, there are three steps:

  1. ask Svija for the IP address of your website
  2. add that address via the control panel for your domain name
  3. contact Svija to confirm that step 2 has been completed

To request the IP address, send an email to tech@svija.com (an IP address looks like 34.57.123.23).

Once the steps below have been completed, send a second email to tech@svija.com to let us know.


Adding an IP address to your domain name

Connect to the control panel for your domain name. We’ll be using OVH as an example.

  • navigate to the list of your domains


Make sure you see the domain name you want to use.

  • click on the line labeled DNS zones in the image below


We’ll be modifying the A records (the 5th and 6th lines in the above image):



When you click Modify record, you’ll see the following form:



Update the field labeled “Target *” with the IP address supplied by Svija.

Click Next, then Confirm, and you’re done.

Send an email to tech@svija.com to let us know the domain is ready to be set up!
