Point Namecheap domain at web hosting package

If you're using Namecheap for your DNS management rather than cPanel you'll need to manually create a few records for your website to work.

1. Sign into your Namecheap account.
2. Select domain list then manage next to the domain you wish to edit.
3. Click Advanced DNS.
4. In the host records section click Add New Record.
5. Select A Record and enter the host. Typically you'll want to do '@' to point to the root domain (example.com). The IP address for your hosting package was sent to you via email when you ordered, titled "Your hosting account details". For a subdomain like blog.example.com, put blog as the host.
6. Hit Save changes. It normally takes 30 minutes to take effect, however it may take up to 24 hours for DNS to fully propagate.

Extra note: For the root domain, you'll want to create a CNAME record for WWW so people can also access your site with www.example.com. The steps are nearly the same as above, except select CNAME rather than A, www for host, and instead of IP address you'll need to put your root domain as the target.
