Linode: A Record Instructions


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

  1. Log into Linode 
  2. Click Linode Manager 
  3. Click DNS Manager 
  4. Scroll down to A/AAAA Records 
  5. In the first row under Options click Edit 
  6. Enter in the IP Address field 
  7. Click Save

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 Linode tutorial page Or, view a sample message to use when you contact Linode for further assistance.

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

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