You can now add domains that you purchased on outside domain providers directly to a property website on Aryeo! To get started, click the domains button on your listing:

Within the domain pop-up, select "I already own this domain":

From there please click "Add Domain" to add your domain to the system. In order to activate the domain, you must complete the following DNS updates.

Required DNS Updates

1. Add a new CNAME record to that domain in your DNS host settings:

  • Host: www
  • Value: sites.aryeo.com

2. Add a second CNAME record to that domain [Skip if using GoDaddy]:

  • Host: @
  • Value: sites.aryeo.com

3. Only for GoDaddy Users

You must set up a redirect method on your domain. Scroll down in your DNS settings and find the “Forwarding” section. You will create a new forwarding setting that is “Permanent”. You will forward it to your same domain, but include the “www” beforehand. For example, if your domain was 123mainst.com, then add forwarding for www.123mainst.com.

Your result should look like this:

4. Once those DNS settings are in place, your domain should be ready to go on Aryeo! Please note: it can take 4-6 hours for domain providers to update their records. Unfortunately we can not accelerate this process, however domains purchased directly through Aryeo are often ready within minutes.
