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 to

    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

  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.

    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 through the Custom DNS editor. You must use another DNS hosting provider if you want to do that.

  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.
