1&1: A Record Instructions


Editing your 1&1 A Record points your base domain (e.g. yoursite.com) to your LaunchRock page.

  1. Log in to 1&1 Control Panel.
  2. Click the administration tab
  3. Click Domains link from the Domains & Webspace panel
  4. Check the box next to the domain you want to modify
  5. In the DNS dropdown menu select 'Show DNS Settings'
  6. Click the Edit button next to Name Server Settings
  7. Select the DNS button next to General Settings
  8. Select Other IP address
  9. Enter the four parts of our IP address within the text boxes (Each number separated by a dot (.) should be typed into a separate text box).
  10. Click the OK button when finished

Note: To increase reliability you should create four A records and point each one to a different LaunchRock IP address:


    Congratulations! Your A record is now configured to point to LaunchRock.

    If you have trouble editing your A Records, you can check out 1&1’s tutorial page Or, view a sample message to use when you contact 1&1 for further assistance at their support page.

    Note: Editing you A Record is optional for Hosted Pages but a CNAME is not. Create a CNAME record in 1&1

    Once you've modified your A records, it may take up to 72 hours for changes to update live.
