DNS Records

  1. I recently signed up for a service called LaunchRock.

    LaunchRock provides a custom landing page service. My domain is hosted with you, and I need help in editing an A record. To use LaunchRock, I want to edit the A record of my base domain. Since LaunchRock is not a domain host, they aren't able to edit the A record.

    I need to change the A record for keenempire.com to 50.17.236.4

    Once the A record is correctly edited, I'll be able to use LaunchRock.

    I tried all the steps, but it says there's an error. That it has to be a subdomain.

    Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is keenempire.com.

  2. The free hosted WordPress.com blog linked to your WordPress.com username has no blogger created content. Is that the blog in question or not? if not then please post an active link starting with http:// to the blog in question.

  3. Does this help?

    If you’ve mapped a domain to your WordPress.com blog, you can use Custom DNS records to make your domain compatible with other services not hosted at WordPress.com, such as an email provider. Before you begin changing the records, please make sure you have the required information from your service provider.
    ...
    * Please note that you cannot add an A record for a root level domain such as mydomain.com through the WordPress.com Custom DNS editor. You must use another DNS hosting provider if you want to do that. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/custom-dns/

  4. yes, well I'd like to redirect users to go from http://KeenEmpire.com to http://signup.keenempire.com.

    But since I am not able to add an A record to my base domain I think I'm going to have to change the nameservers.

    Right?

  5. Yes, if you’ve registered your domain through WordPress.com and now want it to point to a blog or website hosted elsewhere then you can do this by updating the nameservers. http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/domain-management/#update-nameservers
    Hope this helps.
