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
