From Showit Manual
The Domain Setup wizard can be accessed by subscribed PRO users by clicking the Site menu and then Domain Setup... which will launch the Domain Setup Wizard shown below:
You need to purchase a Domain Name prior to going through this wizard, once you have that, enter it on the first screen. Answer the questions on the second screen to help our Support Team when setting up your account and then proceed to the third screen where you have three options:
- The first option will finish by submiting a request to the Showit Support Team to do all the setup for Direct Host through Showit. This option is FREE and is the easiest and recommended way to do it since we do thousands of these and can get it going quick. It does require that you submit the information used to register your domain name so that our team can access your domain account and make the proper switches to make your website go live.
- The second option is for experienced users who know how to configure their own DNS to point to the Showit servers as the Direct Host.
- The third option is for users who have their website already hosted somewhere on a domain name and want to leave it that way as a Third Party Host so that they can have complete control of the server side scripting and also to preserve current domain configuration and files that are already hosted.
Below is the recommended approach for first time site registrations, click the first option and then enter the appropriate username and password for your domain registration:
Once you have completed this, submit the request and our support team will then configure your domain and Email (if requested) and then notify you when it is setup.
