Connecting a 1&1 domain

The control panel in 1&1 looks a little bit different than other domain registrars, but the DNS changes can be done easily by following a few simple steps. (You can see a video version of the tutorial at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csQLCaUjHeY)

 

To connect  your domain:

1. Log into your control panel at 1&1 to the Domain Overview.

2. From the menu above the domain list choose New> Create sub domain.

4. Back in the overview check the new sub-domain you’ve added and choose from the menu DNSEdit DNS Settings.

5. You will reach a DNS settings page. Choose General settings: CNAME and add the alias www.im-router.com. Confirm and click OK.

7. This time choose DNS Settings: DNS. 

8. Under Advanced DNS Settings choose IP Address: Other IP address and add the IP 174.129.25.170. Click OK.

It can take up to 24 hours for the DNS to propagate and your site will be up and running :)
