How to redirect my domain to WordPress

Once you have contracted and configured your website under WordPress hosting, you can use your domain to display the website served by WordPress. You can do it with these simple steps that we detail below:

Change DNS servers to WordPress servers.

To keep a domain in SW Hosting, but pointing to another service provider, you need to change the DNS name servers (or "hostnames") of the domain.

Go to the SW Panel. In the blue column on the left and go to Domains and SSL > Domain portfolio:

  1. Within the Domain portfolio, you will be able to see all the domains you currently have registered. To the right of each domain you will find the --- tab:

  1. Hover your cursor over the --- tab and in the Contacts and Hosts column, select DNS Data:

A new tab will open where you will find the DNS name servers assigned to your domain. By default, you will have assigned the DNS belonging to SW Hosting. At this point you can modify them and enter the DNS of your other provider.

In the specific case of WordPress, the DNS servers to be set are the following:

  1. ns1.wordpress.com
  2. ns2.wordpress.com
  3. ns3.wordpress.com

Information taken from the official manual of the wordpress.com website (https://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/map-existing-domain/).

  1. Once you have entered the DNS records, click on the checkbox I accept responsibility and then on the green button to save the changes you have made.

Please note that this change takes some time to propagate, so it is not immediate. Once the change has been made, the other provider's servers will decide about your service (including your website, email, etc.).
