  • A Verification Email will be sent from your Vendor as well. Please make sure to complete any required actions, such as, clicking verification links (Each provider will have different requirements)

(This code will need to be copied & pasted into your Admin Portal (See Below))



  • Lastly, you will receive a Confirmation Email from InkSoft giving you specific instructions on pointing/configuring your new CName OR A Record.
