Your own domain (URL)
Smoobu provides you with a tool that facilitates the creation of your website for your vacation rental properties. But maybe, you already have your own domain (URL) and want to use it to make your new Smoobu website? Because let’s face it, sunsetapartments.com sounds better than sunsetapartments.bookingturbo.com.
While it is not “rocket science” to build the link between your domain and the Smoobu website, it might be a little bit of a challenge. Never fear, the instructions on how to do this are below.
There’s 2 main steps:
Add the Smoobu DNS record to your domain provider
First you should change your A record (ipV4 – DNS configuration) to 188.8.131.52
You must do so for the domain without www. as well as for the domain with www. No more A or AAAA records (ipV6) can be added.
For most providers, this is done very quickly. Here are the links to the explanations of the most important domain providers:
Add your domain in Smoobu
Have you added the DNS record to your provider? Cool! You’re almost done. Now go to the basics of the website construction kit. Settings – Website builder .
Enter your URL (in our example: sunsetapartments.com) in the field “Own URL”. Click on save. Make sure the “Public site” button is enabled. This is easy to identify at the bottom of the page – it should be green.
Starting now, the link will take between 30 minutes and 2 hours to be ready. Your SSL certificate will also be issued and your site will be considered secure.
Done! Have fun and good luck with your new Smoobu website! Need assistance? Don’t be shy, drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on +441157070245
