Hello Annlettering, Thanks for the question about transferring a domain to the Big Cartel. If your domain is registered through InMotion hosting, then the current TTL default value is 14400 seconds which is 4 hours. I found some an example of instructions for Big Cartel here if you want to compare. They use a CNAME in their example in the cPanel interface. I hope that helps to answer your question! If you require further assistance, please let us know! Regards, Arnel C.
