How to park your domains for Dub's parking sites and parking pages
Creating a parked site or a parked page on Dub requires you to make a small change to your domain name's settings. In this document, we explain two different ways this can be applied.
We assume that you have already created either a parking site or a parking page on Dub and you have access to your domain registrar's control panel where you can apply these changes (e.g. GoDaddy, NameCheap etc).
1. Parking by changing your name server settings
When you create your parking site or page, we usually recommend you to make changes to your domain's name server. This is the simpler option out of the two. In the below example, we show screenshots from a poular domain registrar 'GoDaddy'. All domain registrars should work in a similar way.
1.1 Log-in to your domain registrar's control panel and go to DNS settings for your domain
Screenshot 1 - DNS settings for an example domain 'hellobuys.com'
1.2 Look for "Nameserver" settings

1.3 Change Nameserver settings
Change the name servers to the below two name servers, as shown in the screenshot 3.
ns1.dub.io
ns2.dub.io

1.4 Save
Save the changes. This change will take some time (up tp 48 hours) to take effect. While this change is being applied, you should be able to access your sites via default Dub's sub-domain provided.
2. Parking by creating a CNAME
Depending on your requirements, you may not be able to change the name servers. This would be the case if you are already using your domain in other ways (e.g. using it for mail exchange servers, other existing sub-domains etc). If this is the case then we recommend you to create a CNAME.
2.1 Log-in to your domain registrar's control panel and go to DNS settings for your domain
Screenshot 4 - DNS settings for an example domain 'hellobuys.com'
2.2 Find "Records" section
Screenshot 5 - Locate a section called "Records"
2.3 Add a new CNAME record
Screenshot 6 - Add a new CNAME record
Host is usually the prefix to your domain that you want to use for parking. For example, in the above example, prefix 'news' will be added at the front of the domain 'hellobuys.com'. So the actual domain being parked will be http://news.hellobuys.com. Domains with such prefixes are called 'sub-domains' and you can use any type of sub-domain you wish.
If you do not wish to use any prefix, depending on your domain registar, yo ushould be able to type either "*" or "@" (or sometimes even blank) to use your root-level domain for parking
Your CNAME also needs to point to your parking site or parking page at Dub. This address (e.g. news.dub.io in screenshot 6 above) is provided for every parking site or page created by Dub and can be found in "domain" settings page as shown in screenshot 7.

2.4 Save
Save the changes. This change will take some time (up tp 48 hours) to take effect. While this change is being applied, you should be able to access your sites via default Dub's sub-domain provided.
