This article explains domain name mapping and how to activate it in your hosting control panel.

This article applies to Shared Hosting, Reseller accounts and Dedicated Servers.

Domain name mapping is the process of associating a domain name with a hosting account. This process allows for the files that you upload to your web space to be displayed when someone connects to www.yourdomain.com in their web browser.

How do I map my domain name?


Login to your Donhost control panel.


Click the Domains link on the navigation bar.


Locate the required domain name and click the corresponding Mapped To link.


Select the required hosting account from the drop-down menu and click Map Domain.

Please note: Once you have mapped a domain name to a hosting account, please allow up to 1 hour for your changes to propagate on our servers.
