Connecting your domain

First, when you are editing your website, click on the gear in the top right hand corner. This will take you to the website settings.

Next click on Domain & Publish tab, you can then click on the add domain button, and you will be prompted to input your custom domain.

Before you click add, you will need to edit the domain records from your domain registry. This is the site where you originally bought your domain from. You will need to create an Aname with host "@" and value "3.17.229.36". Here is an example on how to do this with Namecheap. If you are using a different provider, we recommend you search their help center -- they will have guides on how to accomplish this.

It can take up to 24 hours for your changes to reflect.

Making your website secure (https)

Once you have successfully updated your domain records to point to Ambition's servers, you can click on "Make default", then "Generate SSL" button in order to add an SSL certificate to your website. Doing so will make your website secure.
