This article will briefly cover how to configure your NameCheap domain name to point to your SupaDupa store. This assumes that you want it configured so when a person visits example.com or www.example.com they see your SupaDupa store immediately.
1. Log in to your NameCheap Account click the Manage button for your domain name from your Dashboard:
2. From the main page for your domain, add a re-direct to point from your domain, to the 'www' version of your domain as demonstrated in the following screenshot. Click the green tick to save your changes. This is to ensure that those who enter your domain into their browser address bar will still reach your store:
3. Click on the 'Advanced DNS' tab while till on the management page for your domain. Where we will modify the DNS settings the point the 'www' of your domain, to SupaDupa. You'll want to add a CNAME record, with the Host as 'www', and the value as 'mysupadupa.com'. If you already have a 'www' entry, simply modify the value here to 'mysupadupa.com'
4. Now log into to your SupaDupa back office and go to Domains under the Shop Settings tab. You should now add the www version of your domain name (e.g, www.example.com) to your SupaDupa domains page, and make it the default domain. Note that it may take up to 24 hours for your domain changes to take effect, although it's often much faster.
