Creating or Editing A Records

An A record, also called a host record, is the record in your zone file that connects your domain name to your IP address. This allows a user to enter your domain name in a Web browser to access your website. These are the most common type of zone record.

  2. In the My Products section, click Domain Manager.
  3. Click the domain name you want to update.
  4. In the Total DNS section, click Total DNS Control.
  5. Click Add New A Record to add a new record, or click  for an existing record you want to edit.
  6. Complete the following and then click OK:
    • Host Name — The host name the A record links to. Enter @ to map the record directly to your domain name.
    • Points to IP Address — The IP address used by your domain name for this host record.
