I'm having problems creating a DNS A record to point the domain name to another site. I have entered the IP Address in the DNS settings section in the 'value' box and tried adding the domain name to the new site but it still says the domain doesn't exist and I will need to purchase it. Not sure what to do next.

Any help will be greatly appreciated! :-)

Hi Marchesa,

You may need to check on the requirements for pointing with your other site host. Not all hosts will work with A records, some need nameserver(s) settings.

Once you find this out then you should be able to point your domain successfully.
