How do I create an A record?

In order to add an A Record for a domain please use the following steps :

  1. Login to your cloud web hosting control panel. 
  2. Click on DNS Zones on the left menu.
  3. Click the configure button that corresponds to the domain that you are wanting to enter the A record for.
  4. Click on the Add Record Button.
  5. For record type choose A
  6. Enter the hostname of the domain.
    ( For example if you wanting to add an A record for newrecord.domain.tld you would simply enter newrecord in the domain name field.   If you are wanting to create an A record on the domain itself ( domain.tld ) leave the domain name field blank.)
  7. Enter the IP Address the A record will point to.
  8. Click Add Record.
