How do I change the address of my site?
Go to "Settings" → "Addresses". Click on the options to either add, edit or delete an address.
When you add a new address you can choose between three options:
- "Search for a new domain" — buy a new personal address like mycompany.com, mycompany.net etc from Edicy ( this requires Edicy Standard / Plus account ).
- "Import an existing one" — i.e. an external address that you already own (also requires Edicy Standard / Plus account).
- "Create free address" — choose this if you want to add a free "myname.edicy.co" address.
How do I buy a domain from Edicy?
I’ve added my personal address but the default edicypages.com / edicy.co address is still showing.
Your default edicypages.com / edicy.co address will continue to exist side by side with your own personal address (whether it’s a personal edicypages.com / edicy.co address or a domain tied to your Standard / Plus account). You can see your site at the new address when you enter the address into your browser’s address bar.
My custom address typed without “www” opens my Edicy site but with “www” it doesn’t. What is wrong?
This means that your main domain address (e.g. mycompany.com) is redirected correctly but the subdomain (www.mycompany.com) isn’t. To correct this you have to make one more change in your domain name servers.
If the record “www” exists in your server then you have to verify that its type is CNAME and the value is your domain name (e.g. mycompany.com). If it isn’t then correct it (if the record type of “www” is A-record then delete it and add again as CNAME -record).
If the record “www” doesn’t exist in your server then you have to add a new sub-domain record with the name “www”, the record type as CNAME and the value as your domain name (e.g. mycompany.com).

Redirecting your web address to Edicy
Once you’ve registered for Edicy Standard or Plus you can redirect your personal web address (e.g. mycompany.com, mycompany.co.uk) to Edicy. This can be a slightly different process depending on which provider you purchased your address from. Below are general instructions on how to redirect your address as well as instructions for some of the larger address providers. Also check if you have entered the address into your Edicy site addresses section before redirecting. If you are having difficulties please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NB. This guide assumes that your domain name server (DNS) remains on the server of the provider from which you purchased your address. If you want to move your name server to Edicy, please contact us at email@example.com.
- Log in to the administrative section of the site where you purchased your web address.
- Find the option for “IP Forwarding” or “Modifying an A-Record” (usually found under the heading “Advanced DNS Management”).
- Select this option and enter Edicy’s IP address: 188.8.131.52.
- Log in to your Edicy site.
- Check you've entered your domain correctly in Edicy in "Setting"→"Addresses", where you can click on the options to "Add" or "Edit" your domain.
Note: It can take up to 48 hours for these changes to take effect - but if you're lucky it might only take a couple of hours.
