Wild West Domains: A Record Instructions


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

  1. Go to the Zone File Editor for the domain name you want to update
  2. In the A (Host) section, click the A record for the domain you want to redirect
  3. Be sure the type is set to @ 
  4. In the Points to field— Enter 
  5. TTL — Leave as default
  6. Click Save Zone File
  7. Click OK

Note: To increase reliability you should create four A Records for your domain 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 Wild West Domains tutorial page Or, view a sample message to use when you contact Wild West Domains for further assistance.

    A CNAME record is required for your hosted Landing Page. Create your Wild West Domains CNAME record.

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