Domain mapping guide for dummies

while seeing in the web browser’s adresse bar.)

Hi @davidbenoit

Yep, this is possible. You’ll need to edit your GoDaddy DNS and point the A record for your domain at the IP address of the server hosting your journal. You’ll then need to edit the Apache server config and either create or modify the VirtualHost for your journal, and set the ServerName for that VH to your new domain name. Then set the base_url of your journal accordingly in
