Setup A Record already but still can't publish the site

I have customized the DNS configuration and set up my A Record to Yola's IP. See attached.

When I type in my URL - - it also says "Your domain is pointing to Yola" and all I need to do is to publish it.

But when I was trying to publish it from Yola and when I hit "test it", it says that my domain is not yet pointed to Yola.

There seems to be a conflict. Besides waiting for another 24 hours, anyone know if I did anything wrong on the DNS setup? Not sure if I need to change CNAME too for it to work? Please advise.

Also check the spelling of domain name any where that you have entered it manually.
If your domain registrar has a phone number call them.

Make sure that all your publish setting have been entered properly.

When I have these problems I start from the beginning at publish you site button and check all entries. Check and re-enter all information and make sure spelling is right.
Check domain setting.

If all else fails Unpublish site then republish site.

Depending on your domain registrar remember some are slower, and some are quicker.

Be Patient Hope this helps.
