Hi Frostbytez

Unfortunately our tutorial can't cover all the domain name registrars, as there are so many of them!

These are general instructions on how to configure your domain to point to SynthaSite. If you require specific help with the interface of your domain name registrar, please contact them for support.

How to configure a domain name you already own:
1. Log in to your chosen domain registrar
2. Go to the DNS Management page.
3. Set up an A Record
4. The IP address of your record must point to: "208.75.208.172"

I did a quick search on the Yahoo! Small Business support page and I found the following instructions on how to set up an A record through their service:

I hope this helps and that you are able to get your website up and running soon!

Congratulations! I see that your site is now up and running. It can take up to 48 hours for a DNS change to propagate across the whole internet. However, in your case this seems to have worked a lot more quickly.
