Yahoo! Domains

This guide walks you through the process of hooking up your domain to your Strikingly site, if your domain registrar is Yahoo!. If you don't have a domain yet, you can purchase one from us for $24.95 a year, and we'll hook it up to your site automatically! Otherwise, if you already own a domain and manage it through Yahoo!, follow these instructions.


You can send this link to your domain registrar support if you need help or If you'd like us to connect your domain for you, send us the info here!

  1. In your Strikingly site editor, go to Settings > Domains and add the domain you’d like to use for your site such as www.yourdomain.com. Then click “Update”.

    Notes: Make sure to type your domain in lowercase to avoid the "Page not found" error when accessing your site.



  2. Login to https://smallbusiness.yahoo.com/servicecheck.php
  3. Select “Domain Control Panel”.

  4. Select "Manage Advanced DNS Settings".



  5. Click “Add new record”.
  6. Add “www” in the “Source” box and “dns.strikingly.com” to the “Destination” field. Then click “Submit”.



  7. Click “Submit” again.

  8. Follow the same steps when adding the A records. The "Source" should be empty when adding A records. Fill out the "Destination" box with an IP address from us. Continue until all the following IP address has been added: 54.183.102.22 (Note: The IP address will redirect yourdomain.com to www.yourdomain.com)


Note: The system automatically detects whether the records added are either CNAMEs or A records. 

Check back after a few hours and see if your site is up! Be sure to clear your browser cache when you check to see if the domain is working.

If your site doesn't go up after a few hours, contact support@strikingly.com and include a screenshot of your domain settings so we can help!

If your site doesn't go up after a few hours, contact support@strikingly.com and include a screenshot of your domain settings so we can help!

Still not working?

If you are getting the "Page not found" error.

  1. Check your Strikingly settings! Go to Settings > Custom Domain and see if the domain is set up. If not, enter your domain again (ex. www.yourdomain.com). Update, publish, and check the page!
  2. If this doesn't work or you get a "invalid domain" error, email us at support@strikingly.com or chat with us! Send your domain registrar screenshots and we'll help you find a way.
