Hi, @scobb, and welcome to the Netlify community site. :slight_smile:

I agree with @andylemaire (and your second post) that this will work. If you run into any issues please let us know.

Note, there are two ways to point a custom domain to a Netlify site:

I strongly recommend starting with “external DNS” as it tends to be less complex to get working. (It is just the adding of one or more new DNS records with your current DNS service - which is normally the domain registrar itself.)

Thanks Luke - it is working so far - very small test site - and I’m quite impressed.
