  3. Click Domains. 
  4. Click Manage Domains.

  6. Leave the Name field blank. 
  7. Change the Type to A
  8. In the Value field enter

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 the DreamHost tutorial page Or, view a sample message to use when you contact DreamHost for further assistance at their support page.

    A CNAME record is required for your hosted Landing Page. Create your DreamHost CNAME Record.

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