Step 1

Choose a registrar, or use tools like Bluehost or GoDaddy to find and buy a domain name that's available. (This usually costs about $10-$40 per year.)

Create a DNS record based on how many levels your custom domain contains:

Two Levels:        
(e.g. mywebsite.com)    
point A-record (IP address) to 52.202.25.159

Three or More Levels
(e.g. www.mywebsite.com, blog.mywebsite.com, or mywebsite.co.uk)
   
Point CNAME record to "domains.smallteaser.com"

Your registrar should have instructions on how to implement the proper CNAME or A-record.

Step 2

For the time being, we're going to ask you to send an email to support@smallteaser.com with the following info:

  • Your Small Teaser username
  • Your URL (e.g. mypublication.smallteaser.com)
  • The custom domain name (where you just configured the A record or CNAME record) 

We will then proceed to change your domain name configuration within Small Teaser ASAP. 

Note: during the process of setting up a custom domain, your current domain may be unavailable for up to 72 hours while the changes take effect!
