Hello, I have purchased my domain www.thenewblacknetwork.co.uk from you. I have built my website on Weebly.com. I need you to point my domain to the following IP: 199.34.228.100.

This is done by changing my domain's A-Records. I am not requesting that you transfer my domain, redirect my domain, or change my name servers. I want to remain with you as my domain registrar. For more detailed information, please see http://kb.weebly.com/domain-registrar....

Read the forum earlier and understand this will be done quickly with the IP address, so thanks in advance!

TNB Network
Thank you!

Hi there, 

When you buy a domain from Yola we give you the ability to manage that domain as you please.  Here are the instructions you need to follow on Yola in order to point your domain to Weebly's IP address:

  1. Login to your Yola account and make sure you are on the "My Yola" page.

  2. Click on "Domains" and then click on "Advanced settings" next to the domain name.

  3. To access the A Record, click on "Change your DNS settings".

  4. To add an A Record, click on "Add DNS Record".

  5. Make sure that "A" is selected (you'll need to add two A Records) if you would like your domain to work with 'www' and without):

  6. In the first A Record, leave the name blank and paste the IP address in the Value field.  The IP address you should use is: 199.34.228.100

  7. In the second A Record, add 'www' under the name and paste the IP address in the Value field.

  8. The original A Records will still remain but be overwritten.  

  9. Please note that it can take up to 48 hours for this change to fully propagate across the internet.


For more information on accessing the DNS Settings on your domain, please view this tutorial: Managing the domain you bought from Yola.

Please note: Changing your domain settings can result in your site no longer working. Please be sure you understand the consequence of the changes you are making.
