Back to "Your website address"

Using your already existing domain

You can always use your already existing domain with your Voog website.

Redirecting your web address to Voog

Once you've subscribed for Voog you can redirect your web address (e.g. mycompany.com, mycompany.co.uk) to Voog for it to display your website.

NB! This guide assumes that your domain name server (DNS) remains on the server of the provider from which you purchased your address. 

Basic Instructions

  1. Log in to your Voog site. Go to Settings > Domains. Then click on 'Add new' and 'Import'. Write the domain name into the form without the www prefix ( e.g. mycompany.com ).
  2. Log in to the administrative section of the site where you purchased your domain. 
  3. Find the option for 'IP Forwarding' or 'Modifying an A-Record' (usually found under the heading 'Advanced DNS Management').
  4. Select this option and enter Voog's IP address: 85.222.234.14
  5. Don't forget to configure the domain for use with the www prefix. Add a second A-record with the same IP-address, but set the hostname to www.

Note: It can take up to 48 hours for these changes to take effect - but if you're lucky it might only take a couple of hours.
