If you're ready to publish your site live to your domain and have already put in your setup request for your blog (if you have a blog tier subscription) then you're ready to point your domain to Showit via DNS to display your site at your domain!

Set Your DNS Automatically

You can now configure your DNS records automatically with just a few clicks. Click here to find out how:

If you are unable to use Entri to automatically configure your DNS because your domain registrar is incompatible, you will need to set your DNS records manually. You can find the values for your DNS records that need to be set in your registrar here:

⚠️ Your DNS record values can be found in Showit, but they must be set within your domain registrar to connect your domain to your site. You can find out how to set your DNS records here.

Where to Find Your DNS Values in Your Showit Account

If you've recently signed up for Showit, you can access your site's specific DNS values by following these steps:

  • Log in to the Showit Design App

  • Click your name in the bottom left hand side of the bottom toolbar

  • Choose the Manage Account option

  • Click Learn More under your domain name on the right

Note: If you do not see a domain set here, go into the Design App and ensure you have clicked “Connect Your Domain” in the upper left of the Design App to submit your domain. You must do this before you can access your DNS records.

Once you have connected your domain in the Showit design app, hit publish.

Your DNS Values

Under Your DNS Records are the DNS record values that are unique to your site. It is important to know that these records are not set here, they are the records that you need to apply in your domain registrar.

  • If you have a Green Note, that record is good and doesn't need changed.

  • If you have a Red Note, that record is wrong and need to be deleted.

  • If you have a Yellow Record, that record needs to be set or added.


Once you have set up your DNS records in your domain registrar, the changes that were made may not update immediately. While these changes can happen in a matter of minutes or hours, it can take up to 48 hours to fully propagate throughout the internet worldwide. So if you aren't seeing your site live right away, give it another few hours, and refresh the page.

Once your DNS records have been set properly and have had time to propagate, your domain will display like so:

Check Your DNS Records

If you aren't sure that your DNS records have been set correctly in your registrar, you can check in your Showit Account.

On your Domains screen, click on the button that says Check Site.

This refresh can be used once every 5 minutes to run a check on your DNS records. If your records have a green note next to them, they are set correctly. If the note is yellow or red, some changes might still need to be made to your records.

If you are certain that you've set your records correctly, but you're still seeing errors after checking your site, your DNS records might still be updating. See Propagation.


I don't see those DNS records in my account! - You might first need to submit a blog setup request to get your records if you have a blog tier subscription. If you have done this and you still aren't seeing them, please contact Showit support.


How do I find my DNS records?

To see your current records, go to your domain registrar (where you purchased your domain). To see the correct records you'll need to input, go to your Showit account settings. If you're still having trouble, just reach out to support!

What if I can't see my DNS records in my account app?

Make sure your domain is connected in Showit. To connect your domain, simply hit 'connect your domain' in the top left corner of the builder and select your domain name. If you have a blog subscription, you'll need to make sure you have your blog set up before you can see your DNS records.
