Add an A record

You can add an A record to your DNS (Domain Name System) zone file for a domain registered with ITEGY. An A record connects your domain name to an IP address and lets web browsers find your website. You can use an A record to point to your hosting account or to create a subdomain. If your domain is not registered with ITEGY, you can add an A record using DNS hosting.
