How to set up DNS for your website

For your website to respond on its domain name(s), the associated DNS records have to point to freistilbox. If your domain is managed by us, simply contact our DevOps support and we’ll take care of all the necessary details.

In case you’d like to handle this yourself, we’ve made the process as simple as possible. Simply go to your website’s details page and you’ll find the IP address there:

Enabling Let's Encrypt

For all domain names to which you’d like your website to respond, you need to set up a DNS A record pointing to this IP address. In the majority of cases, this will be at least two names such as “” and “”.

If your website’s IP address is displayed on the freistilbox dashboard as “unknown”, a manual change by our engineering team will be required. Simply contact our DevOps support and we’ll get it sorted.

If you’d rather have us manage all these technical aspects, you can transfer the management of your domain to us at any time and we’ll be happy to take it from there.
