How to Connect
a Domain Name

Find out how to assign a unique address to your website
Before you start: Tilda does not provide domain hosting services, which means you cannot transfer your domain name 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 the browser address bar to visit your website. Custom domain names boost your credibility and help to build up your brand.

To get a custom domain name, follow these 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 that points to the IP address 185.215.4.66 Learn more.

How to set up a domain name

Find the DNS zone of the domain and add an A-type record that points to the IP address 185.215.4.66 for the root domain that is usually indicated by @.
Root domain
For example: website.com

1. Sign into the domain name registrar account and open the settings.
2. Find the DNS zone editor and click on Add New Record.
3. Select an A-type record. Leave the Host field empty or type the "@" sign and point it to the IP address 185.215.4.66
Keep in mind that the 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 indicated by @.
Subdomain
For example: blog.website.com or www.website.com

1. Sign into the domain name registrar account and open the settings.
2. Find the DNS zone editor and click on Add New Record.
3. Select an A-type record. Fill out the "Host" field with a subdomain you need. For example, blog or www. Point it to the IP address 185.215.4.66
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 Nameservers that look like:

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

Leave them unchanged.

Some registrars do not provide the NS service by default, or it is available for an additional fee.
Please note that it may take up to 24 hours after you have modified the domain name records in the DNS zone for the updates to propagate across the Internet.
