Connecting a Third-Party Domain

If you already have an existing domain, you can connect it to your website by following one of the listed domain provider guides. If you don’t see your domain provider, use the information below the list to set up your desired records.

Note: These guides only help you connect a registered third-party domain to your website. If you're trying to point an existing domain to your Etsy shop, please contact your provider directly.

If you don’t already have a domain and would like to register one, you can do so from your Pattern Dashboard. Learn more.

To continue, select your domain provider:

BlueHost

Dreamhost

Enom

GoDaddy

DNSimple

Namecheap

Yahoo/Aabaco

123-reg

NetworkSolutions

BigRock

If you don’t see your domain provider in the list above, you can use the information below to set up your desired records. If you need assistance, contact your domain provider’s support team and provide them with this information.

Note: You need to set both A and CNAME records in order for your domain to properly connect to your Pattern site.

First, edit your A record information for your root domain.

  • Set up one A record that points to 192.147.0.118.

Next, edit your CNAME records for your subdomain.

  • Set up a CNAME record (www.) that points to your Etsy-hosted domain, which is patternbyetsy.com.

Be sure to specify the desired subdomain. Keep in mind that it can take up to 48 hours for a connected domain to work.

Note: Only you are authorized to instruct your domain provider to connect your domain to your Pattern site. Etsy cannot interact directly with your domain provider under any circumstances.

Once you've finished setting up your records, you must visit your Pattern Dashboard to connect your domain to your Pattern site by entering www.YourDomain.com in the Connect field next to Own your domain? Keep in mind that it can take up to 48 hours for your domain to connect.

Note: If you own a domain that doesn't have DNS record management and want to point it to your Pattern site, you can transfer your domain using Hover, a tool that automatically sets records for you. Learn more about connecting your domain to Pattern through Hover.
