Connecting Your Domain Name

A domain is the URL or website address where your customers go to find your store online.

When you sign up for BRIKL, your default domain uses the format your-store-name.briklshop.com. To change the store name in your default domain, go to Settings > Information.

If you want to change the domain that customers use to visit your store, then you can buy a custom domain name from any third-party domain registrar, such as www.example.com.

Connecting your third-party domain to BRIKL points to your domain name at your BRIKL store. You will still use the third-party domain provider to manage your domain settings, pay for your domain, and renew it.

You can add your custom domain to BRIKL manually:

  1. Log in to the account you have with your domain provider.

  2. Find your DNS settings. Look for your domain management area, DNS configuration, or similar.

  3. The domain settings panel might feature drop-downs or editable fields, or you might have to check boxes or edit a table.

  4. Find the CNAME record in your DNS settings.

  5. Change your www CNAME record to point to sites.brikl.com Often, you need to provide just the prefix without the dot, but for some domain providers you need to provide the whole subdomain. Use the existing entries as a guide, or follow your provider's instructions. CNAME records must always point to a domain name, never to an IP address.

  6. Make sure to redirect the non-www to www.

  7. Save the CNAME Record (usually by clicking Save or Add record or similar).

  8. Now you need to verify your connection in BRIKL.
