17. How do I point my domain names to BrandExpo ?
There are two ways you can point your domain names to us. We recommend you try them in this order:
1. Domain forwarding
Pros: Usually instantaneous, and simpler
Cons: Not always supported by registrars, or they may try to charge you
Most domain registrars offer a “Domain forwarding” or “Web Forwarding” option. To successfully forward your domain name to us, simply enter this URL in the field provided by your registrar:
https://brandexpo.com/domainname.html [your domain name with .html at the end]
For instance, if you own ‘superb.com’ you’d need to forward your domain name to
Once you’ve done this, if you visit your domain name, you should see a BrandExpo page.
If you give BrandExpo up to 24 hours, it will detect your domain is pointed out automatically.
2. DNS records
Pros: Almost always free
Cons: Can take 24-48 hours to take effect, maybe a bit more.
You can also point a domain to BrandExpo by changing your domain’s DNS records. To do this, you’ll need to edit the nameservers for your domain in your registrar’s control panel. Set the first and second nameservers to
Leave any other nameservers blank.
Once you’ve done this, depending on a bit of luck, it can take 24 – 48 hours for the whole Internet to be able to see it. This is down to the way DNS works, and there’s nothing Brandexpo or you can do to make it faster.
