Domain is pointing to Yola but can't publish

I have directed the domain www.flyfishingtripsalaska.com to Zoneedit. I have followed the instructions and added the two A records:

www.flyfishingtripsalaska.com 208.75.208.172
www.www.flyfishingtripsalaska.com 208.75.208.172

Is this correct?
Zoneedit says that the domain is pointed to Yola.
A public lookup confirms this.
Yet i cannot get Yola to recognise the domain. It has been 72 hours at least.

What have I done wrong?

Hi Paul,

I am sorry you are experiencing this issue. When I do a lookup on your domain you only have one A Record setup for www.flyfishingtripsalaska.com
You still need to setup a 2nd A Record for flyfishingtripsalaska.com

Can you please check your settings again?

Hi Kershee.

What should the second record be in ZoneEdit?

ZoneEdit reports the following A records:

www.flyfishingtripsalaska.com 208.75.208.172
www.www.flyfishingtripsalaska.com 208.75.208.172

Should I delete the second and replace it with another?

Hi Paul,

Your 2nd A Record should be flyfishingtripsalaska.com and not www.www.flyfishingtripsalaska.com. Please delete the www.www.flyfishingtripsalaska.com one and re-add it.

Please take a look at the detailed Tutorial for help - Using ZoneEdit for domain name management.

Thanks Kershnee.

It does not give me the option of adding flyfishingtripsalaska.com. The zone that are in ZoneEdit is www.flyfishingtripsalaska.com and not flyfishingtripsalaska.com. I cannot change this. Should i go back to Moniker (the domain register) and change the DNS settings for flyfishingtripsalaska.com?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Kershnee.

I have discovered that Moniker allows me to change A records directly. Thus i do not need to use ZoneEdit. I will wait and see if it works.

Thanks
