Create an A record for Yola

  1. I recently purchased a domain through WordPress (less than 60 days ago) but after finding it difficult to create a website for my business I began using Yola.com. They asked me to point my site to my WordPress-purchased domain using an A record.

    I know I have to create the A record editing the DNS page in my dashboard under the following code:

    A <subdomain> <ip>

    I have their IP address but I'm not sure what to do when it comes to the subdomain. Everything that I've tried have been unsuccessful.

    Also, Yola says I need to create to A records, one for WWW and another for @, which I don't know what it means.

    Is it possible that WP doesn't allow to point to yola? What am I doing wrong? Thank you for your help.

    The blog I need help with is hunksandfruit.com.

  2. I will flag this thread for Staff attention.

  3. Unfortunately, as Yola does not offer nameservers, your domain cannot be directed there through out system.

    I recommend waiting for 60 days until after the date of purchase, then you can transfer your domain to a registrar that allows A record manipulation.
