Thanks @auxclass. I got this response from Zenfolio through email:
Zenfolio is not a domain registrar or domain host, so you will need to keep it hosted with your current registrar or transfer it to another domain host. This will allow you to host the domain on your registrars nameservers. After which you can have it point to your Zenfolio website.
Please see the following link for a video walk-through on how to point your custom domain over:
In any case, when your domain is hosted, to break it down:
You need to have only 1 A Record, and it needs to point to our IP Address, so it will look like:
Host: @ Points to: 126.96.36.199
(for some domain registrars, it looks like Host: yourdomain.com Points To: 188.8.131.52)
(or Source: @ Destination: 184.108.40.206)
and the CNAME should read exactly:
Host: www Points to: custom.zenfolio.com
(for some domain registrars, it looks like Host: http://www.yourdomain.com Points to: custom.zenfolio.com)
(or Source: www Destination: custom.zenfolio.com)
**Please note that you need to type the word “custom” in the CNAME destination, do not replace this word with your username.
After you make this change, it can take up to a full 48 hours for things to resolve properly, so I would suggest checking back periodically by trying to add it into your Zenfolio Preferences…and if after 48 hours it still doesn’t resolve, please send me a screenshot of your A Record and CNAME section of your domain registrar account and I can take a closer look for you.
Here is a link with instruction on how to take a screenshot if needed:
