Billing of custom domain hosting - monthly or yearly?


#1

Shalom

If I am already signed up for a yearly paid personal plan, if I add a custom domain, is there a way to pay it monthly instead of yearly like my plan? (and this means without changing my plan to a monthly paid one...)

Thanks

Yoram

I'd say don't hesitate to ask that question to support@webflow.com, that's a question no one from the community can answer smile

Hi @yoramraz1, thanks for the question :=) The custom domain fees are all billed monthly, on all plans. The fee is $4.99 per custom domain, per month.

​I hope this helps. If not, please let me know – I'm happy to assist further! smile

Cheers,
Dave

Great. That means that I can cancel it any month if I decide to move it to a different server...
Thanks for your help

Hi @yoramraz1, yes that is correct smile We want to see you host that in Webflow though, because you will also get the Fastly integration and ease of publishing smile http://forum.webflow.com/t/super-duper-fast-custom-domain-hosting/11495

Cheers,

Thanks Dave

I just registered www.dritamarraz.com with you. I then published it.
How long does it take to show up, because it's just coming up with a namecheap.com page saying the site is registedered with them.

Thanks

G-d Bless smile

Ok. I worked out that I need to change my DNS settings on my provider (namecheap in this case).
The only thing is it asks me to specify two custom DNS servers, What do I use?
One I understand should be: proxy.webflow.com
The other I have no idea...

Hi @yoramraz1, take a look at this page, there is some links to Namecheap:

http://help.webflow.com/faq/where-do-i-edit-my-dns-settings

Those DNS servers that you mention, I think may be the Nameservers for the domain, and those should be set to the nameservers that Namecheap provides by default as a service for your domain.

If the nameservers are set, then you can make additional DNS changes on the domain to point the A Records and CNAME records to Webflow:

http://help.webflow.com/site-settings/hosting#custom-domain-hosting

Normally the nameserver settings should be done automatically for you, but if you need help, ask from Namecheap:

​I hope this helps. If not, please let me know – I'm happy to assist further! smile

Cheers,
Dave

Thanks Dave
I worked it out thank G-d.
I must say however that I didn't find the help page http://help.webflow.com/site-settings/hosting#custom-domain-hosting too informative when it came to setting up the CNAME record...
Also what are the A records for?
Blessings smile

Hi @yoramraz1, first, thanks for the feedback. The we can improve that, by listening and taking action smile We'll go review that smile

The A Records are the IP addresses that your naked domain points to. For example, if your naked domain was mydomain.com, then you would need two A Records to point mydomain.com at Webflow..

A Records are a mapping between the naked domain and the webflow servers.

The CNAME record is used to redirect browser requests for sub-domains of the naked domain, for example, the "www" in "www.mydomain.com" to be directed to the webflow proxy server at proxy.webflow.com.

Our proxy server will route the browser request to the correct custom domain setup in the Hosting tab.

​I hope this helps. If not, please let me know – I'm happy to assist further! smile

Cheers,
Dave

Thanks Dave.
I still don't get the A records thing. Have a look at what I set up:

You're saying that's not enough to get it set up?
I checked it now and the domain www.dritamarraz.com is showing up perfectly...


#12

Hi @yoramraz1, in this case, on the first line where it says Host Name and the value is "@", you will need two lines of entries, with that same Host Value of "@", with each line having a different IP Address:

23.235.33.229
104.156.81.229

The Record Type should be set to A Record for each line. The record you have setup for the CNAME looks good smile

I would add the A Records as I have instructed :), Setting these records will also resolve the page 404 issue that you have here:

http://dritamarraz.com

One note to others, each DNS service provider might have a little different layout for these settings, and even different terms or names for the Host Name and IP Address values.

When in doubt, search the help documentation for the DNS provider on keywords "A Record" and "CNAME" record.

Webflow provides the A Record and CNAME values that are needed, in our help docs :).

If you ever get stuck, you can send us an email at support@webflow.com, we are happy to guide you in the process smile Cheers, Dave
