Once completed, the domain mapping should function within a few minutes but may take up to 48h or more to function, depending on individual domain providers’ terms and conditions. Puzl is not responsible for any impossibility to implement domain mapping pertained to resellers and registrars.

Once the change in the IP address confirmed, the Member is required to go to the “Site Settings”, “Domain / URL” section of the “Admin Panel” and indicate in the required field the URL of the domain own, being the same domain confirmed to be used for his Puzl website.

Once activated, Members’ Puzl subdomain will redirect customers to the newly activated professional domain.
