How To Connect
a Domain Name

Find out how to assign a unique address to your website
There are two ways to connect a custom domain name to a Tilda website: By transferring the domain to Tilda's NS-servers, or by adding A-type records to your domain registrar's account. If you opt to transfer the domain management to Tilda, the records are managed by Tilda, and IP addresses are assigned automatically.
Which option to choose?

Domain transfer by specifying Tilda's NS-servers allows the system to assign the most suitable IP addresses for the website automatically. This way, you can create subdomains and use them for other Tilda projects, create TXT records for the third-party services, and MX-records for setting up a custom domain email address.

If you need to add additional A-type records to the domain (for example, if you want third-party services to work on subdomains), specify the A-type records manually on the registrar's website as described below.
How To Transfer Domain Management To Tilda's NS Servers
To transfer the domain management to Tilda, add the following NS-records to the domain registrar's account:


Changes may take up to 24 hours.
Once the DNS is updated, open the domain records management on Tilda. To do this, specify the domain name in the Site Settings → Domain, and check its connection. If the NS-servers are correct, the "DNS is managed on Tilda. Go to domain management" message appears, and the domain is connected.

Click the link in this message to manage the domain.
The domain control panel will open. Here you can set up domain mail, add additional TXT records, and subdomains. Records required for the website to open on the main domain will be created automatically.
Learn more on how to add additional subdomains, MX records, and TXT records in the detailed guide "How To Manage DNS On Tilda."

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 (it is 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,
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, or
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:

* A
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.
