Adding a domain to Oidom

You can add a domain in Oidom by going to publish:

  1. Click “Publish”
  2. Click “Edit” next to domain
  3. Add domain to field “Connect your domain” and “Save”.

For now, you can’t register a domain with Oidom. But you can register it with another service and redirect the domain to your Oidom website. Here’s how.

Option 1: change nameservers

Option 2: change A record

Option 1: Changing nameservers

You can change the nameservers to us. If you change the nameservers, then the DNS settings of your domain can be changed in our service. Our nameservers are:

ns1.vercel-dns.com
ns2.vercel-dns.com

Please note that you usually need to wait at least a few hours for the change to take effect. You also need to publish the Oidom website after the the change has taken effect.

Option 2: Changing A record

You can change A record in your service providers service. Our A record is (replace example.com with you own domain):

example.com A 76.76.21.21

Where field NAME is example.com, field TYPE is A and field DESTINATION is 76.76.21.21. TTL can be set for example to 360 (means 6 minutes).

Also usually www is then redirected. For www.example.com to work you still need to add one more A record or use CNAME.

So add either (replace example.com with your own domain):

www.example.com A 76.76.21.21

or (not both)

www.example.com CNAME example.com

Please note that it can take a few hours for the changes to take effect (depending on the previous TTL setting).

With this option to change records in DNS you still continue using your existing service provider to maintain the DNS service of your domain. So f.ex. email settings for your domain can still be changed using your domain service providers service.
