To connect your external domain to your Tailor Brands website, through the My Sites section, follow these steps:
1 . Log In to your Tailor Brands account
2. From your Tailor Studio, select the Websites tab on the left-hand menu

7. After you will finish with the above steps, you will need to make the changes in your Domain Settings under your Domain provider website, as presented in Section B below.
B. Update your domain settings under your Domain provider website
After you have connected your external domain to your Tailor Brands website, through the My Sites section within your account, you will need to make some changes in your Domain Settings under your Domain provider website, for you to complete the connection of your external domain to your Tailor Brands website.
To do so, go to your Domain Settings (under your Domain provider website) and make the changes below in your Records:
- Add a CNAME record of Host "www" that points to "s.multiscreensite.com"
- Add an A record of Host "@" that points to "188.8.131.52"
- Add an A record of Host "@" that points to "184.108.40.206"
Upon adding these A records, please make sure to delete any other existing A records within your domain settings.
It takes 48 hours for DNS changes to take effect. If by this time you do not see your website live, feel free to contact us at [email protected]
