Connecting a domain

How to assign a unique address to your website.
Before you begin: Tilda does not provide domain name hosting it means that domain name can't be transferred to Tilda. You will have to manage domain name records on the side of your domain name registrar.
The domain name or URL is what people type into their browser address line to find your website. Custom domains boost your credibility and help to build up your brand.

To get your own domain name you should follow the next steps:
1
Buy a domain name
Check up domain availability and register a new domain from a reliable registrar. How to buy a domain name?
2
Set up a domain name
Find the DNS zone of the domain and add an A type record pointed to the IP address 185.203.72.17 Learn more.

Set up the domain name

Find the DNS zone of the domain and add an A type record pointed to the IP address 185.203.72.17 for the root domain that is usually indicated by @.
Root domain
For example: website.com

1. Sign into the domain name registrar account and navigate to the settings.
2. Find the DNS zone editor and click on the Add New Record button
3. Select an A type record. Leave the Host field empty or type @ sign and point it to the IP address 185.203.72.17
Keep in mind that A record must be the only one for the root domain that is indicated by @. To avoid possible conflicts between the records remove the other A, AAAA and CNAME records if they are for @.
Subdomain
For example: blog.website.com or www.website.com

1. Sign into the domain name registrar account and navigate to the settings.
2. Find the DNS zone editor and click on the Add New Record button
3. Select an A type record. Fill in the Host field with a subdomain you need. For example, blog or www. And point it to the IP address 185.203.72.17
Note. It is quite common when only a subdomain points to Tilda while the root domain remains connected elsewhere.
Do NOT change Nameservers (NS). All domains usually have at least two NS servers which looks like:

dns1.registrar-servers.com
dns2.registrar-servers.com

Leave them unchanged.

Some registrars do not provide NS service by default or it is available for an additional fee. In that case you may use Cloudflare which offers NS free of charge.
Once the domain name records in the DNS zone were modified, it can take up to 24 hours for the updates to propagate across the Internet.
