Getting Your A and CNAME Records

If you'll be using another DNS service, such Cloudflare as or through your domain registrar, you'll need to know where to point your A and CNAME records. Here's how to find them:

Note: We recommend using CNAME records if possible.

  1. Log into the Atomic control panel.
  2. On the left side main menu, click on Apps.
  3. Locate the site that you need to need to point the domain to, and click on the Gear icon to the right of it.
  4. From within the app settings, scroll down and navigate to the App Info tab.
  5. Scroll down to locate the Default DNS Information section.

Inside the Default DNS Information section, you'll see the A and CNAME records that will allow you to point your domain to your site on Pagely.
