In brief. Before connecting a domain, you need to:
Go to the Site Settings on Tilda → Domain, add the domain name, and get the recommended IP address for the website.

In the domain control panel on the registrar's website, add DNS records for the domain:
  • the A-type record for the main domain (sometimes it's indicated as @) that specifies this IP address;
  • the A-type record for the WWW subdomain that points to this IP address.

How to assign the domain name in Site Settings on Tilda

Open Site Settings → Domain, specify the domain name. If you can't find the "Domain" tab, please make sure you are browsing Site Settings and not Page Settings. Save the changes.
If the domain is not connected yet, you'll see the IP address of the A-type records you need to add as described below. If you’ve already completed everything using the guide, it's likely that the DNS is being updated, and this can take up to 24 hours.
How to add the A-type records on the registrar's website

You need to add an A-type record for the main domain. You can do it in the domain control panel (often called "DNS Management").

If your registrar does not provide DNS servers by default, use Tilda DNS servers. See the detailed guide

For the primary domain
For example, mysite.com
1. Log into your domain control panel.
2. In the domain settings, find a tab or section for adding DNS records.
3. Add the A-type record and paste the IP address displayed in the Site Settings → Domain.
If you have other A-type records for the primary domain, delete them. You can only have one type A entry for a domain, otherwise, it won't work.
For a subdomain
For example, sub.mysite.com or www.mysite.com
In the domain settings, add the A-type record and paste the IP address displayed in the Site Settings → Domain.
Important: You should avoid adding Wildcard A-type records or CNAME records. Such records usually begin with * symbol (or have this value in the subdomain name / "Host" field), for example:

*.example.com A 1.1.1.1
All changes can take from 3 to 24 hours.
If the records have been activated, you'll see that everything is correct and the domain has been connected in the Site Settings → Domain. In this case, the website already uses the domain, if you've published all pages and haven’t restricted access to the website or page.
