Using My Domain Name Without DNS Change 

In order to get your Fortune3 site working with your domain name, the domain needs to be configured to point to our web servers. If you want to achieve this but want to keep your current DNS host, you can do this by configuring your domain's Advanced DNS (through your DNS hosting provider), and using a CNAME record to point your domain name to our servers (both the with the www. and without the www.). 

Please create the following CNAME records for your domain name:

CNAME            www.fortune3.com.
www CNAME www.fortune3.com.
newsletter CNAME newsletter.fortune3.com.
m CNAME m.fortune3.com.


After you have done this, you will need to log in to the FORTUNE3 Admin Site and go to "Manage -> My Domains", and on this screen, enter your domain name into Step 2.

Following these steps should enable your domain.

Using My Own Domain(s) 

You can use any domain name, with any extension (international included), and as many domain names as you like with your FORTUNE3 Store.

If you have already purchased the domain name from any provider:

In this case, your domain name must be pointed to our DNS servers. Log in to your FORTUNE3 Administration Site and go to "Manage -> Domains & Emails -> My Domains". Follow the instructions under Step 1 and Step 2 in order to use your domain name with your FORTUNE3 store.

If you have not yet purchased your domain name:

You may purchase one directly from FORTUNE3 by going here:

Or you may purchase a domain name from any provider. Once your purchase is complete, please follow the instructions in the section above titled "If you have already purchased the domain name from any provider". You will not need point your domain to our DNS servers in this case, as when you purchase the domain name from FORTUNE3, the domain will automatically point to our DNS servers.

Using Sub-Domains 

In order to have your FORTUNE3 store accessed through a sub-domain name (Example: shop.mydomain.com, or store.mydomain.com) you would need to create the sub-domain on your end (through your domain hosting provider's DNS manager), and use a CNAME record to point your sub-domain to our servers. Please create the following CNAME records for your domain name:

yoursubdomain*   CNAME            www.fortune3.com.
newsletter A Record 76.74.147.122
m A Record 76.74.148.230

* replace yoursubdomain with your actual sub-domain (i.e. store, shop, etc.).

After you have done this, you will need to log in to the FORTUNE3 Admin Site and go to "Manage -> My Domains", and on this screen, enter your sub-domain into Step 2.

Following these steps should enable your sub-domain.
