    Hi,

    Could anyone help me find my IP address in WP so I can fill it in my hosting account DNS A records?

    The blog I need help with is en-atelier.com.

    HI there,

    I see your domain is with Tucows, correct?

    It is better to change your domain’s name servers to map it here. You can find Tucows’s instructions for doing that here:
    http://www.tucowsdomains.com/topic/name-server-dns-changes/

    You need to use the following name servers:
    NS1.WORDPRESS.COM

    NS2.WORDPRESS.COM

    NS3.WORDPRESS.COM

    If that’s not possible for some reason, let me know and I can give you our current IPs, but you should be aware that those change over time which can cause your domain to stop working, so we don’t recommend that option.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply! but I am with Hostnet I don’t know Tucows..
    Hostnet told me I have to get my WP IP so I can change my DNS A files. Do you know how I can get it?

    You will need to add two A-records with these IPs:

    192.0.78.24

    192.0.78.25

    These IPs can change over time, at which point your domain will stop working.

    Should that happen, please contact us again for the new IPs.
