Connecting Namecheap domains

Balloonary allows you to connect a domain that you own in Namecheap to a project in Balloonary. Please check out our general custom domain guide before you read this Namecheap specific guide.

In order to do that you need to create a CNAME or ALIAS record in Namecheap for the domain you own. Which record type you should create depends on the domain type you like to connect.

  • Subdomain (e.g. sub.domain.com): CNAME record
    Enter your full subdomain as the host name and paste the DNS target you copied from Balloonary as the value.

  • Apex domain (e.g. domain.com): ALIAS record
    Enter the ‘@’ symbol as the host name and paste the DNS target you copied from Balloonary as the value.

Please notice that it takes a bit of time until these settings are propagated and live, sometimes up to 48h.
