Domain Mapping: PairNIC

Updated 07 July 2014

To set up Domain Mapping with pairNIC, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to PairNIC at: https://www.pairNIC.com/login.html
  2. Click Manage Domain Names.
  3. Click on the domain name.
  4. Click E-mail Forwarding, Web Site Forwarding, and Custom DNS.
  5. Read the warning message, agree to the terms of service, and click Continue.
  6. Under Add New Record, select CNAME from the menu.
  7. Enter the below information:
  8. Alias: www
    Points to: Enter the domain name for your Typepad account. e.g. example.typepad.com
  9. Click Submit.
  10. Under Web Forwarding, check the box to Customize Sub-Domain Host.
  11. Enter the below information:
  12. Host Name: @
    Destination URL: Enter your pairNIC domain name. e.g. www.yourdomainname.com
  13. Click Submit.

Please note if you are mapping to a subdomain - i.e. blog.domain.com - the Alias will be set to the subdomain instead of www, and steps 9-11 are unneccessary.

After completing set up at PairNIC, return to Typepad and go to Account > Domain Mapping > Begin Here. Enter your PairNIC domain and click Add Domain Mapping. Finally, click Activate next to the domain to complete the set up.

If you encounter any problems with the display of your blog after activating the domain, deactivate the domain at Typepad until the Domain Mapping set up is complete. See the article on no design appearing after mapping article for more information.
