If you host your domain with Fasthosts and want to self-manage your domain you will need to update your domain DNS records in your Fasthosts Dashboard. This support guide describes how to configure your domain name to point to your Rocketspark website and email hosting if you have chosen to manage your own domain name during the upgrade of your website.
It is important that you understand the settings that you are changing. We recommend you first read our Can I manage my own domain name with Rocketspark? What settings do I use? guide if you haven't already.
