Hi,

I am trying to point a clients domain from Intuit to Yola. The two A records are created and pointing to "184.72.229.176" The Intuit URL is akplumbingaz.com and is clearly pointing to Yola. The Yola URL is plumbingservicearizona.com and I want this to be the primary domain. When I try to add akplumbingaz.com to Yola the error message says "Your domain is not pointed at Yola" but when you enter akplumbingaz.com a page is displayed that says it's pointed to Yola. When I try to edit the pointed domain again it says it's not pointed.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Pat,

Thanks for your message. I would like to help you with your domain pointing. When looking at the domain records for: http://akplumbingaz.com/ I see that you have one domain pointed to Yola's IP address: 184.72.229.176.



Please make sure you have 2 A records set up. If you would like your domain to work correctly with the "www" prefix you need to make sure that your DNS settings are configured correctly to support the "www" prefix. For this you need to set up two A-records:

* Some domain registrars require one A Record with the hostname "@" and one with the hostname "www".
* Other domain registrars allow you to create one hostname called "domain.com" and another "www" (replace "domain" with your own address).
* Both should point to our IP address: 184.72.229.176

Please go ahead and add a second A record with the hostname "www". Please note that this change can up to 48 hours to propagate across the Internet.

Certainly let us know if you if you are struggling with publishing to this domain after the changes have been made.

Cheers,
Brianna

Thanks Brianna

With Intuit you have to remove the CNAME “www” Just leave it blank and bingo it works. Be sure you use @ and www for your A Records host.

Happy Friday!
