DNS link missing for Domain


I have a Tumblr account and would like to use a custom domain name. According to the Tumblr directions, I would need to purchase a domain. I purchased one last week from Dreamhost. It is not hosted.

Dreamhost instructions say to go to the Control Panel/Domains/Manage Domains and then click on the DNS link. But I don’t see any DNS link anwhere. Does it have to be hosted first? Kind of defeats my purpose in using Tumblr.



Domains do not need to be hosted. Tumblr host your website.

Do this
Domains tab on the left
Manage Domains
Click the Domain you want to use then point at the name servers tumblr give you.

Oh you’ve done that already? use a different browser there should be a blue underlined “DNS” just under your domain.
