WHen changing domain name what exactly do i put for host and ip address?

Post by Avery on February 15th 2013, 12:58 am

I am on the site where i have registered my domain and at the DNS page and it is asking for host and ip address what do i put in those fields? I'm guessing i put my ip address in the ip one ofc.. but is that necessary?

You must add a new CNAME record. CNAME's don't use IP's.
