domainpark
==========
-A tiny app that let's you park your domain names at Heroku. Simply create this as a new app on Heroku, and [add custom domains to it](https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/custom-domains). This works great if your registrar charges you for a redirect, or if you just like Heroku as an interface for this.
+A tiny app that let's you park your domain names at Heroku.
+
+1. Change the URL in config.yml to your domain name.
+2. Create a domain park app on Heroku, and push this code to it.
+3. [Add custom domains to the app](https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/custom-domains#heroku-setup).
+4. [Change your DNS setting of the domain you'd like to point to Heroku](https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/custom-domains#dns-setup).
+5. Your domain is now parked, and will 301 redirect traffic to your chosen site.
+
+This is alternative to paying your registrar for redirects for the domains you're not using yet. And thanks to Heroku's command line interface, it's very easy to add domains quickly.
