Add an A Entry for Your Hostname

An A entry, also known as a A record, is part of your servers DNS files. The A entry points a hosname or domain to an IP address which allows other computers to find your server on the internet. 

If a DNS zone for the domain does not already exist the system will create a new DNS zone with the full name of this entry.

Create an A entry

In order to add an A entry, perform the following. Enter your server's IP address in the available textbox. Click "Add Entry". Your domain will now point to the server's main IP address.
