How do I link a domain to my Weebly account (in cPanel)?

Weebly is an online, widget-based website builder which allows users to create pages by dragging and dropping different page elements (images, text, etc.) onto a page and filling in the content. However, its functionality is limited, and Weebly does not provide email hosting.

If your domain is pointed to our hosting nameservers and assigned to the hosting account, you can still link your domain website (NOT the whole domain) to your Weebly account. For this, you will need to edit the records in cPanel following these steps:

for cPanel paper_lantern theme
for cPanel x3 theme


for cPanel paper_lantern theme:

1. Log into your cPanel account.
2. Navigate to Advanced Zone Editor menu in Domains section:



3. Find Zone File Records section and click on Edit next to A record for your domain.

4. Add Weebly’s IP address for the Address field. You can use any of the following ones:

199.34.228.55
199.34.228.56
199.34.228.57
199.34.228.58
199.34.228.59


They all function in the same way and work properly. If you find this confusing, just use 199.34.228.59 IP:



5. Click on Edit Record to get the changes saved.

6. Then you will need to set the same A record for a www subdomain. Most likely, you already have CNAME record for www.yourdomain.com, so feel free to edit it:



After making the changes, it may take up to 24 hours for the domain records to be updated.


for cPanel x3 theme:

1. Log into your cPanel account.
2. Navigate to the Advanced DNS Zone Editor menu in the Domains section:



3. Find the Zone File Records section and click on Edit next to A record for your domain:
