You can easily do this from your Web4Africa’s account. First, you must make sure that the domain name is pointed to the following nameservers:

To do this, please log into your Web4Africa’s account. Click on “Domains” and select “My Domains”. On the new page, you will see “Manage Domain” beside the domain name you want to configure. Click on it and then click on “Nameserves” on the new page. You can then change the nameservers.

    Hello AdeSoji,
    I have several domains with Web4Africa
    I would like to point one of them to our facebook page whilst we set up the website
    How do I do that please?
    Thank you

      Hello Tabitha, you will need to first add the domain you want to point to Facebook as an addon domain from your cPanel. After which you will then use the redirect function (in your cPanel) to redirect the domain name to your Facebook page
