Add an A record to your DNS zone file in your ELITE WEB Co. account. An A record connects your domain name to an IP address and lets web browsers find your website. You can use an A record to point to your hosting account or to create a subdomain.

  1. Log in to your ELITE WEB Co. Domain Control Center. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select your domain to access the Domain Settings page.
  3. Under Additional Settings, select Manage DNS.
  4. Select Add under the records table.
  5. Under Type, select A.
  6. Enter the details for your A record:
    • Host: The host name the A record links to. Type @ to point directly to your domain name.
    • Points to: The IP address you are setting as the destination for the host.
    • TTL: How long the server should cache information. The default setting is 1 hour.
  7. Select Save to save your new A record.

Please allow up to 48 hours for your changes to take full effect globally.
