If you don’t own a domain name yet please read this article first.

If you bought a domain name you should have access to the ‘DNS’ settings. You will need to point the A-Record of your domain name to the IP-address of our server. Be sure you change the A record and not the MX record, because MX is for mail. The IP address of our server is 178.63.63.211. Sometimes the changes are instant but they may take some time. After waiting a few hours you can add your domain name (without www.) by going to the ‘settings’ tab and click on ‘domain name’:

Medium-domainname

Our server does a check to see if the domain name is pointed properly. If that is not the case you will get an error like this:

Medium-domainname-error

Just wait some time and try it again later. If you don’t get the error your domain name is now linked to Paspartout. If you’re not sure what you are doing ask the company where you bought the domain name.

Here are some direct links to the manuals of a few services. If your service is not listed and you manage to find a manual for it, please let us know and we will list it here.
