Domain forwarding using 1and1.com

I'm trying to direct my domain to Yola. I've tried using the information provided for GoDaddy, etc. But my domain is with 1and1.com.

I know that the IP address for Yola is 208.69.126.210, but what do I put in for primary name server? I know it's something like ns1.xxwebnamexx.net, but I'm not positive.

Any body got the answer for me>

Thanks.

Hello Dean,

What we need you to do is edit your A Record to point towards our ip address which is 208.75.208.172. You don't need to change the name servers, these can stay as they are.

I have checked at 1and1 and this is where you can find the instructions for setting up the A Record to point towards our ip address: http://tinyurl.com/u6s6e.

If I can assist you further please let me know.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Thanks. I think I got it right this time. They seem to make it seem more complicated than it needs to be.

I've set 1&1's A Record to point to 184.72.229.176,

and I now get a "Your domain is pointing to Yola!" page when opening my domain (ashleycooper.net).

But, when I try to add the domain at MyYola, it gives me the error " Your domain is not pointed at Yola".

Hello Jamie - sometimes the domain change needs a bit more time to propagate through the internet. But it seems fine now, I've published your site for you.
