Flywheel provides each site with an 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 the MediaTemple Account Center, select the Admin panel for the domain you’d like to point to a Flywheel site.
Now select the Edit DNS Zone file button.
If you haven’t previously associated this domain with hosting, your zone file will be blank, and will look like this:
Add two new records to the domain using the Add a record button. You will need one A Name and one CNAME record. Enter the IP address that Flywheel provides you in the right hand field of the A Name record and the left hand field blank. For the CNAME record, enter ‘www’ in the left hand field, and your domain followed by a period/full stop in the right hand field.
Check to make sure the record change has been updated and points to your site’s Flywheel IP address and 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! Submit a ticket in the Flywheel app and attach a screenshot of your current DNS records or your current registrar login for assistance.
