    ok - what if you didn't buy your domain name from GoDaddy?  Say Host Gator and they say that you guys need to set the A record.

    Hi everyone,

    You can follow the above instructions - to set up the A Record to point our IP, and the www CNAME to point to your sitename.socialgo.com, using any domain registrar, we just used GoDaddy as the example.

    You can often find step-by-step instructions on how to set-up your domain with your domain registrar by visiting their help center and searching for something like "Edit A Record". Please remember you do not need to change the Name Servers, just the A Record and CNAME for your domain.

    If you have any trouble, e-mail support@socialgo.com and we'll be happy to help however we can!

    I have 1and1.com and I can have tried to set this up but still cannot get it to work.  They require a specific forward destination for a HTTP redirect.  Could you help?

    Hi Leo - you need to update the A RECORD (maybe you need to ask 1and1 to do this for you, some providers don't let you update this A RECORD directly), not do an HTML redirect. If you're attempting to do a redirect, it won't work. Email us on support@socialgo.com if you're still having troubles with this!

    I have been working with someone who has developed a database using asp.net that would work in the backend.  Would that be something that would be compatible with utilizing socialgo?

    Hi Joanna - how exactly are you intending to utilize SocialGO with the database? At first glance, it doesn't sound like an obvious fit, but I might be missing something. Could you please send the specifics of your project to support@socialgo.com and we'll get the right person to have a look at it. Thanks for your interest!
