How to Change your Website’s Domain

The Investment Dominator comes with integrated buying and selling websites. By default, the URL (web address) of these sites will be something like this:

www.investmentdominator.com/rei-crm/crm-00XXX/

Can you imagine slapping that address on your letter to an owner?
I won’t look too pretty.

Many users therefore, choose to purchase their own custom domains from a provider like GoDaddy.com and the point that domain to their Investment Dominator account. In other words, when the person types in the custom domain that you purchased (i.e. www.YourDomain.com) it will send them to your buying or buying site.

Here’s how to do it…

STEP 1 – Register A Domain And Point It To Our Server

First, you must register your domain with a domain registrar like goDaddy.com

We recommend that you register one domain for your buying site and another domain for your selling site. The reason we use two separate domains is that the people going to these two sites are very different markets and have very differing mindsets about real estate so your domains should reflect that.

IMPORTANT: You must point your registered domains to our server. To do this ask your domain registrar (i.e. GoDaddy.com or whoever you bought your domain from) to point the domain to the IP address 198.199.94.234

NOTE: Both the host @ record as well as the www. DNS record will need to be pointed to the 198.199.94.234 IP address.

TEST: To see if you have completed this step properly when you go to your new domain address in a web browser you should see the main page of the InvestmentDominator.com come up. If you see this you know you have completed step 1 and you can move on to step 2 below…

STEP 2 – Map Your Domain To Your APP

After you have pointed your domain(s) DNS to the correct IP Address, you can map your domains to your Investment Dominator CRM. To do this, log into your Investment Dominator app and click on the “Customize Site” button at the top.

Then scroll down to the section labeled “Website Settings – Buying” or “Website Settings – Selling” sections and enter your domain in the “Buying Site Domain” and/or “Selling Site Domain” boxes.

NOTE: Make sure to keep the http://www. part of your domain in there so the value should look like http://www.YourDomain.com 

Click the “Change Your Domain” button, on the next screen review and confirm the change and your new domain will be saved.

IMPORTANT!: Once you change your buying site domain your login link also changes to become your buying site domain PLUS /my
For example, http://www.YourDomain.com/my will be your new login link. (Your username and password stay the same).
