    How update DNS A record on Managed WordPress hosting?

    How do I update my DNS A record for a Managed WordPress account?


    I am trying to have a new subdomain I created:

    cdn.ptsdexams.com

    link/connect/resolve to my Pull Zone with my CDN provider (MaxCDN).

     

    When I created that new subdomain, under Settings, I received this message: 

     

    "This option will require that you update your DNS A record to [my ISP]."

     

    But no instructions were provided therein, and I could not find the answer after searching GoDaddy Help for half an hour.

     

    Thanks!

    I finally figured it out from reading instructions on other hosting provider's sites. Robot Embarassed

     

    I needed to go to my DOMAIN account, not my Hosting account, which makes sense now that I think about it. Ah well, lesson learned.

    Hey @mdwpsyd

    Glad to hear you got it worked out! Smiley Happy

    Just to clarify the solution you found on your own (for anyone else reading this); do you mean to say your domain was in another customer account separate from your Managed WordPress hosting?

    If it was/wasn't, I think the steps on modifying the DNS A record covered in Change an A record would help in either case. Just a little extra info to help anyone else out running into similar roadblocks on their own. Smiley Wink
