DNS Records/ Editing an A Record. HELP!

  1. Hey guys,

    I recently signed up for a service called LaunchRock. LaunchRock provides a custom landing page service. My domain is hosted with WP, and I need help in editing an A record. To use LaunchRock, I want to edit the A record of my base domain.

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

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

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance !

    The blog I need help with is keenempire.com.

  2. Not necessarily, I don't want to update/change my nameservers. I'd like to edit the A Record without switching to another registrar. All LaunchRock tells me to do is:

    "Create your new A record by entering a Host Name/Alias and Value/Destination (the exact terms may vary by host) as shown below.

    Host Name/Alias: many times this should be "@" and might already exist.
    Value/Destination: 50.17.236.4"

    But I get an error every time :(

  3. Does this apply?

    * 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. ah yes, you got it.

    So now I have to go back to my old nameservers. So I lost 12 bucks.

    Thanks for the help, really appreciate it!

  5. I'm so glad I was able to help as this area is not one I'm well acquainted with.
