How to connect your domain name to Pics.io

If you want to create a website using Pics.io, usually you want it to be available at an address like john.org.ua, not something like show.pics.io/hkh3ueh3282938383 that goes by default.

Well, that’s easily achievable:

1. Go to the website where you’ve registered your domain name (GoDaddy, IwantMyName, etc.)

2. Find DNS preferences of the domain name you want to connect to Pics.io

3. You need to change A-records of your domain:

*.yourdomain.com should be associated with 54.243.40.217 ip address

@.yourdomain.com should be also associated with 54.243.40.217 ip address

You can leave MX records untouched. Once you finish setting up the right A-records, save them and wait one day for them to apply.

After that you’ll be able to enter your domain into the link field in Pics.io.

Update Website: Portfolio

If you want to create a dedicated gallery, just add a word after the last slash (i.e. http://kshtondenko.com/gallery) and click Create website.
