If you are using domain mapping to map a custom domain on Edublogs.org we need you to make a quick change to your DNS records to ensure your domain mapping continues to work.

Here’s what you need to do:

You need to log into the domain manager for your domain or send a support request to your registrar (the company or organization you’ve purchased the domain name from) and update your DNS records to what is listed in Tools > Domain mapping of your domain mapped Edublogs.org site.
