In order for your domain to be linked with a MesArt account, you must have an Artist Studio or Artist Gallery account.
How do I get/register a domain name?
If you would like to have your own domain name you must have an Artist Studio or Artist Gallery account and register a domain name. The less expensive way to register a domain name is at: http://www.godaddy.com. They'll try to make you buy their other services, such as 'private registration', but you typically won't need those.
When registering a domain name, enter the following information into your domain record at your domain registrar:
Primary Nameserver: ns1.kattare.com Primary Nameserver IP: 22.214.171.124
Secondary Nameserver: ns2.kattare.com Secondary Nameserver IP: 126.96.36.199
If they don't have a place to enter a numeric IP address (188.8.131.52), just enter the nameserver names (ns1.kattare.com).
Please let us know when you are done, so we could hook up your domain name with your MesArt website on our end!
