I have registered a domian name through GoDaddy but can't figure out how to make site in Business Catalyst go to that name… in other words how do I make it go live without the "businesscatalyst.com" included in the URL. I have registred with BC and paid for their hosting …
First you need to log into the website admin and under the 'Site Settings' you will find 'Site Domains'. Click on 'New Domain' and follow the promps. Then in GoDaddy you go into your Domain manger there and change the DNS Nameservers to:
NS1.worldsecuresystems.com and NS2.worldsecuresystems.com
Once that is done it can take up to 48 hours to propogate. That's not a BC thing that's just the way it works.
I have done what you said and made the approriate adjustments to the DNS nameservers in GoDaddy. Hopefully all will be working by the end of the weekend. GoDaddy says it normally takes about 2 hours. Only time will tell.
Thanks for your help as it is not intituative to us old print design guys.
Thanks again Brad for your help. The clock is on and will check in about two hours to see if live as now has been approx. 15 minutes… then every so often atferwards to see site live without the BC.com stuff to the url.
FYI the site is now live. It took about an hour to come to life.
And… I see you are in Williams Lake. Gorgeous. Was there last August en route to Bamfield to hike the West Coast Trail. Hope to be an islander in a year or two… just need to save more loonies for the move from SW Ontario.
