Now you have to add 4 ‘A’ records in DNS records.

This is an optional step, but I would recommend you must complete this step because if you do not complete this then it will cause problems when you will apply for AdSense. This is also important to properly redirect your readers from “mydomain.com” to “www.mydomain.com”

    GoDaddy is a great platform where you can buy custom domains at very low prices. It will provide you the best custom and care services without any extra charges. I have personally purchased three domains here, and I am fully satisfied from their services. Dissertation Editing Service
