This guide will walk you through connecting your domain from a Muu Muu Domain account to your WebDirect site.
Step 1 - Add domain to WebDirect
Step 2 - Set up your 301 redirects.
If you recently purchased your domain please proceed to Step 3 directly.
If you have an existing website under your personalised domain please follow these instructions and then proceed to step 3.
Step 3 - Log in to your sakura Internet account
Visit sakura internet and log in via the ‘Member Log in’ button at the top right side of the screen.
In the next window, enter your username and password.
Once you are logged in, you’ll see the ‘Contract Information’ view. Click the ‘Contract Domain’ option at left bottom side of the screen.
You’ll see ‘Domain Menu’ at lower right side of the screen.
Step 4 - Set up CNAME and A record
On the next screen, you’ll see a list of your purchased domains.
Choose the domain you’d like to connect, then click ‘Edit Zone’.
On next screen, you’ll see your DNS record. Click ‘Edit’.
To change your CNAME record, look for ‘CNAME’ in the Type column. Add ‘www’ in the Entry Name column, then add ‘suite-sites.booking.com.’ in Value column.
To change your A record, look for ‘A record’ in the Type column, add @ to Entry Name column, then enter ‘22.214.171.124’.
Once you have completed these steps, click ‘Send Data’.
Step 5 - Setting your primary domain
The last step is to set your domain name as primary. If you have multiple domains added to your account, you will need to set only one of your domain names as primary. Your other domains will then be automatically redirected to your primary domain. Visitors who access your website will then always see this primary domain in their browser bar.
In order to set your primary domain, navigate to the ‘Domains’ in the WebDirect ‘Settings’ tab. In the ‘More domains’ section, hover over the domain you would like to set as primary, then click on the ‘Make primary domain’ button. Be sure you save your changes by clicking on the ‘Save’ button in the lower right side of the page.
Hint: You can only set your domain as primary if you made the necessary changes with your domain provider. If this has not been done, you will receive the error message: ‘This domain is not ready to be set as your primary. DNS records could take up to 4 hours to update – please try again later’.
