About Domain Management

Table of contents

 

Each new eChalk site has a default web address that contains the name of the school or district followed by "echalksites.com".

 

Example:

http://your-school-name.echalksites.com 

 

This unique web address allows Site Administrators to access your new eChalk site and work on it behind the scenes until your site is ready for launch.

 

When your new eChalk site is ready to go live you can change this unique web address to a domain that your school or district purchased or already owns by following the process below (click the links for detailed instructions):

 

Steps

Notes:

1. Purchase a domain

If you already purchased a domain, skip to step 2.

2. Configure DNS* to make your domains publicly accessible
 

 

 

*DNS (Domain Name System) is a system that translates the numerical IP address of a web site to an easy to remember web address such as www.eChalk.com. DNS must be configured properly for a site to "go live" on the internet for public access.

If your school or district manages DNS, click here for the A and CNAME records you will need to add to your DNS. Each domain registrar service is different. For detailed instructions, we recommend that you refer to your domain registrar's help page.

 

If your school or district uses eChalk Legacy and you are unsure who manages your DNS, please contact eChalk Support at support@echalk.com to confirm.

3. Set the primary domain for the site in eChalk
