A record

Hello,

I have a problem with pointing my domain name to IP adress. When I tried to change my host name in my A record from "@" to my domain name: "Lotexlogistics.com" It failed. I could change it to "lotexlogistic.com" or any other that had 1 symbol less then my domain name. Guide says that domain can have 25 symbols.

Hi @MaxD

 

Thank you for your post.

 

The @ symbol in the DNS represents the primary domain, adding the domain name itself instead of @ would be a redundancy which is why you are experiencing an error when attempting to save.

 

If you would like to point the primary domain to an I.P. simple modify the "Points to" section with the new I.P. and leave the "Host" as "@"

 

Hope this helps!

Re: A record

Hi @MaxD

 

Thank you for your response. I took a look at Lotexlogistics.com and I do see that it is resolving to a hosting account as the "Future home of something cool" page is coming up.  However, I don't see the wordpress home page as I would normally expect to. 

 

The results signify that the DNS is pointed and resolving. However, I recommend that you review the wordpress install to ensure that it is installed to the proper directory for that domain. If Lotexlogistics.com is the primary domain on the hosting account, the install should be in the public_html directory if using cpanel. 

 

Hope this helps!

Re: A record

Hi @MaxD

 

Thank you for the update. There seems to be a missing cname for www. Try accessing your zone file and add a cname with the following values. 

 

Host = www

Points to = @

 

Add a CNAME record

See if that resolves the DNS issue you are seeing.

 

Best Wishes!

Re: A record

Solved, by instalation WP to "lotexlogistics.com" not to "www.***.com".
The next problem is my office 365 setup. I`ve changed all records acording to my Office 365 account info. But still no result, can not verify my domain ownership.
