Flywheel provides each site with a dedicated IP address which can be used to point a domain to. This is useful if you own, say, example.com, and would like it to resolve to a Flywheel site.
Under the Domains panel in the Flywheel site overview, add the domain you’d like to point to Flywheel.
Once logged into GoDaddy’s administration panel, select Manage My Domains below Quick Links.
Select the DNS Zone File tab underneath the domain.
First, delete the A Name record that currently exists.
Then add a new A Name record with the @ symbol as Host and your Flywheel IP address in the Points to field.
Check to make sure the record change has been updated and points to your site’s Flywheel IP address.
Save the new changes.
Your domain should now be pointing to your Flywheel site.
If you get stuck, or your changes aren’t working, we’d love to help! Send a screenshot of your current DNS records or your current registrar login to [email protected] for assistance.
For those who are technically minded/curious, in some DNS zone record control panels, the @ symbol denotes the bare domain, or a domain without a prefix such as email. or www.
It should also be noted that the @ symbol isn’t supported by every DNS control panel, or is supported in different ways, so be careful when using it.
