Add DNS record for devindelano.com

  1. I've tried to add a Zone Record for the domain devindelano.com but it asked me to contact support. Could you please add the Zone Record for me?

    The blog I need help with is devindelano.com.

  2. Hi there,

    I checked and you have a zone ID, and your site is mapped correctly - I see your blog just fine at devindelano.com! Are you having an issue seeing your site at that domain?

    Cheers!

  3. Hi Zandyring!

    Yes, I can view it. However, my old email address ([email redacted]) was never linked up when I moved my devindelano.com website from an old site to word press.

    I've been trying to figure out how to get it moved over, and the last help menu said I needed to paste in my dns zone record.

    I called go daddy, where my site is parked, and they said i had to find the record on wordpress.

    Do you know anything about this stuff :)

    Thanks,

    Devin

  4. Devin,

    It doesn't look like you've yet set up email through GoDaddy yet, which you can start with GoDaddy. We have some instructions for what to do to complete the process here:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/add-email/add-godaddy-email/

    So read through those instructions, but it sounds like you will need to speak with GoDaddy as well.

    Please let me know how it goes!

  5. Thanks for your response!

    However, now I am going in circles. Godaddy told me I need to get the dns number from wordpress.

    In the link you sent me, i'm asked for my dns number...which led me to call godaddy and then you in the wordpress topics.

    Unfortunately neither is leading me to find the numbers i need to paste into the link you sent.

    Do you see another way for me to find the dns number in wordpress? I'm sure there is an easy solution to this, but I haven't been lucky enough to find it!

  6. also, my email was originally setup in go daddy years ago. when i moved to word press i've tried to move over my email address "[email redacted]"...i successfully moved over my gmail address but the other email address is what i'm having problems with.

  7. Godaddy told me I need to get the dns number from wordpress.

    It sounds like GoDaddy may not be clear on the fact that you only intend to use their email service for devindelano.com - but you're keeping the site hosted on WordPress.com.

    Your name servers for devindelano.com are already pointing to WordPress.com correctly, so that part of the DNS configuration is already done.

    To set up the email part, you will first need to sign up for email service from GoDaddy and ask for their MX records.

    If you're in North America, the records will likely look like this:

    MX 0 smtp.secureserver.net.
    MX 10 mailstore1.secureserver.net.
    CNAME email email.secureserver.net.
    CNAME mail pop.secureserver.net.

    For those records to work, though, GoDaddy needs to set you up with MX records, which are required for mail service. Right now I ran a check and no MX records exist for devindelano.com at the moment.

    Feel free to pass this along to GoDaddy so they better understand what you're trying to do. Good luck!
