Domain Setup with Static IP Redirect


The Static IP redirect is an alternative to using the 301 redirect as part of domain setup.  If your domain registrar allows you to create CNAME records, but not 301 redirects - you can use the Static IP redirect to complete the domain setup process.

The CNAME record will create the "www" part of your domain, e.g. "".  The Static IP redirect will forward users who do not type in "www" before your domain, to the full domain.  For example, from "" to ""

This is not a replacement or alternative for the mobile redirect.


  1. Login to your domain host
  2. Find and edit the DNS settings/records for the domain you want to set up
  3. Create an A name record with the following settings:
    1. Name/Alias: @
    2. Target/Destination:
    3. TTL (optional): 14400
  4. Create a new CNAME record with the following settings:
    1. Name/Alias: www
    2. Destination/Target:
    3. TTL (optional): 14400
  5. Save and wait for propagation!
