Question by Alyi: How do I get domain name onto my website?
I have a website hosted by Weebly, and a domain registered with Crazy Domains.. how do I put the two together? Weebly says I need to create A-Records via my domain manager, but my domain manager says I need ‘Name Servers’ and IP addresses.
Answer by Mr. Tacki
Look in the cPanel or whatever Weebly gives you to manage your site. Go to the Domain Manger Icon (if one) and click it. All you have to do is write down the two name server addresses. These you will put in the Domain Manager under the DNS tab.
Weebly should be providing you with all that information if you have paid hosting with them. If free hosting, then a domain name can not be directed to a sub-domain.

What is an A record?: An A (address) record is a DNS record that can be used to point your domain name and host names to a static IP address.
