How to point a domain to 500px

If your domain is using our BasicDNS, PremiumDNS or FreeDNS nameservers, you can easily connect it with your 500 px portfolio following these steps:

1. Sign in to your Namecheap account.

2. Select Domain List from the left sidebar and click on the Manage button next to your domain:



3. Click on the Advanced DNS tab and find the Host records section, then click on the Add New Record button (not able to edit Host Records?):



4. In this section, you need to create two records for your domain:

A record for @ and A record for www, both pointing to 500px IP address which is 54.172.239.26:



5. Once all details are inserted, save them using the Save changes green icon.

Make sure that there are no conflicting records set for the same Host.

If there are any conflicting records, please remove them. You need to pay attention to the records of the following types: URL Redirect (Unmasked/Masked/Permanent Redirect), A or CNAME.

For example, you need to check if you might have such records as URL redirect and CNAME for the default parking page.

Here is an example of conflicting host records:


It may take up to 30 minutes for the changes to come into effect.

6. To finish the setup, you need to verify your domain on the side of 500px.

That is it!
