[Support Guide] Compiled resources for custom domains on Netlify and DNS settings -- start here!

Hi there! :wave:

We know that using your own custom domain (Example: http://somecooldomain.com) on a Netlify site can be a bit confusing at times. The good news is that our team has written an abundance of guides covering various questions regarding domains. This listing has all of our “best practice” guides about configuring and using Netlify DNS and custom domains on our service, grouped by topic area. We have a few guides that cover multiple topic areas, so we have listed them under each related category.

End to end configuration guides:

Configurations where we host only your website, but don’t manage your DNS:

Articles about configuring Netlify to manage your DNS (in addition to hosting your websites):

Domain registration and registrar configuration:

Troubleshooting tips:

If you are encountering issues with custom domains after working through the guides above, please open a new thread on the Forums and share your site, any error messages you are receiving, and what debugging steps you have already taken. Additionally, if you think there should be an additional guide or resource that isn’t mentioned above, let us know in the comments below!! :arrow_down:
